Viking Dextrin Malt

Glass of cold beer made with Viking Malt's dextrin malt


Viking Dextrin Malt has an outstanding flavor after going through special steeping and germination conditions and a prolonged kilning program. During the first steps of kilning, the green malt is put through demanding kilning conditions before a long-lasting, mild drying period. The amylolytic activity of this Dextrin Malt is modest. The malt brings a pleasant, sweet malt aroma to the beer, with notes of toffee, breadcrumbs and cookies. It also brings a lot of dextrins, which increase the fullness of the beer.


Viking Dextrin Malt can be used in grists for ales and lagers to give fullness and sweetness in the overall taste, supporting good head retention. As Dextrin Malt is light-colored with a not too overwhelming taste, the dosage rate can be up to 30%.
