The lightest colored Belgian malt is produced from the finest 6-row winter barley varieties. Kilned at up to 80 - 85°C.
The lightest in color, this malt is well-modified and is perfectly suited for single-step infusion or decoction mashing. Compared to Château Pilsen 2RS, Château Pilsen 6RW has a more important diastatic power. Our Château Pilsen malt carries a strong, sweet malt flavor and has a sufficient enzymatic power to be used as base malt.
All beer types. Can be used at up to 50% together with Pilsen 2RS for pale beers (Pilsner, Lager) or as part of the mix for the other beers.
