Belgomalt NO-OX malt is a base malt that is comparable with our Pilsen malt.
The special feature of this malt is that the barley variety used is a null-lox 2 row spring barley. This means that there is no Lipoxygenase activity in this malt. Lipoxygenase oxidates fatty acids during mashing. Oxidated fatty acids cause off tastes in your end beer. By using this malt, you will avoid oxidation during mashing which will result in a more flavor stable beer that will have a longer shelf life.
This malt can be treated as a Pilsen malt with its typical low color and high enzymatic activity. Because of its high extract it will enhance a high brewhouse efficiency.
If you experience problems with oxidation off tastes in your beer, this is the malt to try. It has a proven track record on lowering these off tastes.
