Belgian light-colored base malt. Kilning at up to 194 – 203°
Usually used as a base malt or in combination with Pilsen 2RS malt to impart a richer malt flavor and additional color. Being deeper in color, this malt can add a golden hue to wort. In conjunction with being used with strong yeasts, this malt can produce amber and bitter beers as well.
Château Pale Ale malt is kilned longer and usually better modified, providing a more pronounced flavor than Pilsen 2RS. The enzymatic activity of Château Pale Ale malt is sufficient when used with large proportions of non-enzymatic specialty malt. Suitable for pale ales, bitter beers and most traditional English beer styles.
