Our classic continental Pilsner, Rahr North Star Pils Malt is a true European-style Pilsen Malt that is rich in flavor, high in extract and low in protein with moderate enzymes and FAN (Free Amino Nitrogen - read the suggested post on BrewCranium for more information on FAN).   Expect a balanced flavor with malty, subtle honey, bready, and cracker notes without any grassy or harsh character.

This malt is a bit lower in both color and modification.  In terms of sensory perception, North Star Pils has more sweet attributes versus the more grainy and cracker attributs of typical American Pilsner malts.

Note: 55 lb Bulk Sack

A beautifully complex and well crafted pilsner malt, courtesy of our friends over at Briess!  Usually, you expect an American Pilsner malt to be single dimensional, and while delicious, not super complex.  Synergy stands up to all of the highest quality pilsner malts, and lands somewhere perfectly between the flavors that you expect from Weyermann Pilsner, a dry and distinct cracker-biscuit, and Gambrinus Pilsner, a lighter and sweeter biscuity-grainy flavor.  Want to learn more about the different base malts?  Check out our LIVE video from June 6th, 2020 for all kinds of great information!
