Kaiser and others
Is there a source for Moravian (style) malt anywhere that lists the specifications? Briess made a 130th anniversary blend in '06. I wonder if that stuff is available anywhere?

Thanks
KD

Weyerman malting makes a Bohemian Pilsner malt. This would seem to possibly be aligned with your needs for a Moravian malt. You'll be hard pressed to find anyone who sells malt grown in Moravia. AFAIK no one is importing it anymore.

Ok, I thought that was the case.

It's kinda like a Philly cheese steak.

My bad. I didn't know there was a difference - I just remembered seeing the item on a search when I was shopping for pils malt the other day.

The Austin product is Weyermann's Pilsner Malt.

I was wondering if this stuff was still available, but I guess not.

To celebrate 130 years of malting tradition, Briess Malt & Ingredients Company offers the brewing industry our special Briess™ Anniversary Malt. Produced in the company's Chilton, Wisconsin, malthouse from 2-Row Moravian barley, Briess™ Anniversary Malt is a light-colored, mild flavored, low protein pilsener-style malt reminiscent of malts originally produced at the family's Czechoslovakian malthouse. Moravian is historically the preferred barley for lager beer, and Briess™ Anniversary Malt holds true to that tradition. It has a clean, delicately malty flavor with subtle sweetness. It produces smooth wort with low astringency. Low in protein, it is characterized by very plump kernels. Briess™ Anniversary Malt is suitable as the base malt for any beer style.
