Description

Dried Malt Extract (DME) is the primary sugar source in extract brewing and can be used in partial-mash or all grain brewing to adjust flavor, color and gravity of brews.  DME can also be used to increase head retention and body. Many brewers choose nutrient rich DME as the sugar source for making yeast starters as well. Briess dried malt extracts are made from 100% malt and water.

Golden DME: 99% Base Malt; 1% Carapils Malt; Water

Golden Light is an excellent light malt extract . With a malty flavor, it can be used in the production of any beer style, either as a base or to boost gravity.  Slightly darker and richer in biscuity/bready flavors than Pilsen extract. Preferred in the production of most ales.

Typical Analysis:

  • Color: 4.0º Lovibond (8º Plato)
  • Fermentability: 75%
  • Solids: 97%

Excellent Product
Briess Golden Light DME is my go-to DME for making yeast starters. I've made 60-70 starters using this product. I wouldn't use anything else.

I use it for pitching yeast.
Does the trick. And if I feel like a wee bit more C2H6O I will toss some DME in boil for my all grain recipes.

I like the packaging. The DME is fresh. I just brewed a pale ale with it today. I anticipate a tasty beer in a few weeks!

Brett will dry this out
I've had trouble getting this to dry out with some yeasts, however I made a Saison Brett with Dupont yeast and B. Vrai and the Brett chewed through this.
