Product Overview

Xtra Pale is a modern 2-row base malt designed for very light-colored ales.  While it works great as the base malt for any ale, it is particularly perfect for today’s extra light colored pale ales and IPAs.  

Xtra pale is germinated like a pale malt to have a high degree of modification for easy brew house conversion. However, it is then uniquely Kilned like a pilsner malt for a very light color in the 1.7 to 1.9 Lovibond range. The result is a malt that easily and quickly converts like a true pale ale malt, but is as light or lighter than most Pilsner malts.
 
Keg Factory worked with Viking to design this malt based on numerous customer requests. Unique light-colored barley varietals were chosen and the germination and kilning processes were selected to get the best of both worlds.  Compared to other 2-row base malts on the market that were originally designed for big breweries, and are neither true Pilsner or true Pale Malts, Xtra Pale was specifically designed for light, craft-brewed ales.

About Viking Malt

In the north, nature’s conditions are different. The hard winter, short growing season and the endless sunlight of the summer make northern barley and malt truly distinctive. A beer or whiskey has to have character, and so does the malt. The path to greatness is not always the easiest one.
Viking Malt is one of the largest malting companies in the world and the largest roaster of specialty malts. They are the main malt supplier to the famous Carlsberg brewery. Viking Malt has 6 malthouses in areas where distinctive Nordic barley are sourced: in Halmstad, Sweden; Vordingborg, Denmark; Lahti, Finland; Panevezys, Lithuania and in Sierpc and Strzegom, Poland.  The advantage of northern European malt is lower protein levels, good kernel size, and less amount of pesticides used due to the cold winters.
