Viking Pilsner Zero Malt

Glass of cold beer made with Viking Malt's Pilsner Zero malt


Viking Pilsner Zero Malt is made from 2-row null-LOX spring barley. A special feature in null-LOX varieties is that the Lipoxygenase activity is zero, which has a positive effect on the flavor stability of the beer. Steeping and germination conditions are chosen to promote even germination and homogenous modification. The final air-on temperature in kilning is typically 80–85°C.

The flavor is very close to traditional pilsner malt and is usually described as malty, slightly nutty and sweet. The color of pilsner malt is low.


A great malt for all malt beers, with enough activity and character for base malt use in many brewing applications. Dosage rate up to 100%.
