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.

Munich is a flavorful and unique DME available from Briess.

Curious to try - this product is new to me. Munich DME will be a lot more convenient for small extract brews than LME.

High Quality DME
I keep some of this Munich DME on hand for culturing yeast for pitching. I brew primarily German alt style ales and dark, malty lagers. A cup of this plus a half teaspoon of yeast nutrient in a liter of water makes a great growth medium. It has the advantage of closely matching the composition and flavor of the wort into which the yeast suspension will be pitched, so it doesn't adversely affect the flavor.

Munich DME review
Nice to get a Munich DME. Easier than a partial mash, I'm lazy. Use it to boost malt flavor in my IPAs, and for sour brews.
