While it does not have as much diastatic power as other base malts, such as pilsner and pale malts, it does nonetheless usually have enough diastatic power to convert itself. Light Munich malt can thus be used as a base, but is often used in conjunction with another base malt in order to add more rich maltiness to a beer. Light Munich is slightly darker than Vienna and has a wide range of applications in a number of different beer styles.
