What does the term "continental" mean when referring to malts? I have seen that term used before, mainly when sourcing pilsner malt. Is it just a different way of saying pilsner malt that has been grown and malted in Europe? Maybe I am way off base. I can get domestic Pilsner malt, so I assume "continental" means not domestic.

Continental means that the malt came from The Continent - Europe.

Definition: of or pertaining to or typical of Europe; "a Continental breakfast"
