New Goldpils Vienna heritage malt from Briess Malting Co.


The Briess Malt & Ingredients Co. of Chilton, WI, has added Goldpils Vienna Malt to its portfolio of malts. According to the company, this traditional-style malt was inspired by the Briess malting tradition, which began five generations ago in Moravia, Czechoslovakia. Ignatius Briess, a grain trader, started malting barley there in 1876, and was soon exporting it throughout the world. Last year, to honor the company's 135th anniversary, the Briess staff challenged themselves to remake its standard Vienna Malt with more authentic character. The result is the new 2-Row Goldpils Vienna Malt.

"The new malt is less modified and less sweet than Pale Ale Malt but just as light in color," said Bernadette Wasdovitch of Briess. "It delivers rich malty flavor with hints of biscuity notes for Vienna, Oktoberfest and Marzen beers. [However] Brewers can use it in any beer style for rich, malty character. Brewers who have already brewed with Goldpils Vienna report that it finishes exceptionally clean. And at 3.5[degrees] Lovibond, it contributes light golden hues."

The new malt can be purchased by licensed breweries directly from Briess or from an authorized distributor.

The Briess Malt & Ingredients Co. of Chilton, WI, is a family-owned maltster, "dedicated to the small batch production of specialty malts for the American craft beer industry."
