EBC value


BEST A-XL is a malt made from the traditional German barley variety Alexis. It imparts a malty flavor to the beer, provides a full body as well as a golden yellow color. An increased proportion of free amino nitrogen (FAN) suitably supplies yeast during fermentation. Due to its balanced proteolytic and cytolytic properties, BEST A-XL shows up to 30 percent more beer-glass foam stability in tests, compared to conventional standard malts. Using the Steinfurth Foam stability tester (MEBAK), values of >120 SKZ were measured in the final beer, indicating very good foam. Malt from Alexis barley can be used up to 100% in the grain bill. BEST A-XL is available exclusively from BESTMALZ.
