Good flavor, not so great conversion
I really like the flavor of this malt. I can't exactly explain it, but it gives a little richer pilsner malt flavor. That said I don't get great efficiency when using large amounts as a base malt. Side by side with other pils malts in a single infusion mash, I'm losing at least 5% efficiency.

Jason - Floor malted grains do not convert as much as fully modified grain. This helps lend to that flavor and body.

Great Malt!
Weyermann Floor Malted Bohemian Pils is a great malt. Used this for a Czech Pils, that was all this malt except a few ounces of acid malt...the aroma of the wort was amazing, one of the best smelling ever. Beer is lagering now as I wait patiently to drink it!

Authentic malt for authentic beer
No need to cut this malt if your wanting a taste of an authentic European Lager/Pilsner. Paired with the right yeast, this malt produces a beer that is rare to find if at all here in the states.

Best Czech Pilsner Malt
This is a must for an authentic Bohemian Pilsner. Weyermann malts never disappoint.

Czech Premium Lager
The best malt to use for an authentic Czech pilsner. Used 94% in the recent recipe. It came out superb.

This is not an under-modified malt
The Kolbach index for this malt is 38-44, meaning it should be considered well-modified. There's no point in going through a protein rest or decoction in order to get a good yield; it behaves completely normal in that respect. It is, however, a little low in diastatic power, so I have had to prolong the mash a bit in order to get a negative iodine test.

It's a great malt :)!

Nice flavor
This was my first bag of Floor Malted Bohemian Pilsner malt, and it is now my favorite Pilsner malt. I love the flavor, especially in light lagers. This malt works well in a single infusion mash, but it really shines in a multi-step or decoction mash. I love the flavor of this malt. It has a more complex flavor than other Pilsner malts.

Wonderful Bohemian Pilsners
This is my "go to" malt for my favorite style, Bohemian Pilsner. Very malty, sweet, and it does produce Melanoidins. It is the closest thing I've found to undermodified malt since St. Pat's. closed. I always go through at least a double decoction with 20-30 minute boils of each decoction. This malt will give you the rich crackery like flavor of the better Czechs like Staropramen.

One caveat, it does tend to produce stuck sparges. Simple enough, just use some rice hulls before lautering.

Silky smooth with a meringue head
10 pounds of this grain, Schmidtz decoction mash stabilized at 150F for 60 minutes, 90 minute boil, 6 weeks at 48F using Wyeast - Bohemian Lager 2124 produced an incredibly smooth beer with a rocky head (even without rests in the 130F range).
