Golden Dry Malt Extract (DME)

Golden Dry Malt Extract (DME)

Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

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%
  • 1.043 PPG

Works great for yeast starters and the extra money for canned wort isn't worth it.

You put a bunch of this in water, with hops and it turns into beer. This stuff is great, just don't get any humidity of moisture anywhere near it. Can make a lump if dumped into wort so pour easy and stir but if you pour too slow condensation will screw you so you need to practice a little but i like better than LME.

I'm lazy, only do partial mash these days. Use this as base DME for almost all brews.
