2-Row Superior Pale Ale Malt - CMC 1oz
Canada Malting Company's Superior Pale Malt is a well-regarded base malt produced from premium two-row barley varieties. It generally has a color range of approximately 1.8 to 2.5 Lovibond. This malt is known for its high extract yield and enzymatic power, providing a reliable foundation for the fermentation process. It offers a slightly bolder malt flavor compared to standard 2-row malts, with a hint of biscuity and malty sweetness, yet remains fairly neutral and well-balanced.
Given its characteristics, CMC Superior Pale Malt is suitable for a variety of beer styles, including:
- Pale Ales and IPAs: Its balanced malt profile makes it a good base for these hop-forward beers, complementing the hop bitterness and aromas well.
- Lagers and Pilsners: The malt’s clean and slightly enhanced flavor is beneficial for creating the crisp and refreshing qualities of these beers.
- Amber and Red Ales: It provides a nice foundation for the caramel and roasted notes often present in these styles.
- Stouts and Porters: While typically used as a base malt, it can be complemented with specialty grains to achieve the rich and dark characteristics of these beers.
- Belgian Ales: Its neutral yet slightly enhanced malt profile can contribute to the complexity of various Belgian styles.
