2 Row Malt - OiO (55 lb)
Probably the most commonly used base malt in all-grain or partial-mash brewing. 2-row is well modified, smooth, and high in enzymes. Used as a Lager malt, 2-row is less well modified in the malting process making it better suited to a program temperature mash.
2-row typically has a high protein content and a thick husk which is rich in polyphenols (tannins), which can lead to protein haze and astringency. Additionally, 2-row tends to be lower in enzyme and protein levels and has a thinner husk than the 6-row malt.
Typical Beer Style(s):Any
