Pilot is a UK bred barley variety that was originally selected for its higher temperature stable Beta-Amylase. Because of this, brewers are able to get a dryer finishing beer while mashing at a higher temperature. It brews any style very well due to its subtle malt flavor at lower color, but can also be a big help in higher gravity beers when kilned higher (our Pilot Dark Ale). All-around workhorse malt in the brewhouse.
Pilot has taken our customers by storm and blown us away with its kernel size and efficiency in the brewhouse. This is truly our workhorse malt. Feel confident using this as a single-infusion mash at any temp up to 160.
