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.

Pale Ale DME: 100% Pale Ale Malt; Water

Pale Ale is a flavorful and unique DME available from Briess. A rich malty flavor with hints of nuts and biscuit, it can be used in the production of most beer styles, either as a base or to boost gravity.  The proprietary malting process creates a malt extract that is not only darker than golden light, but one that is rich and complex.

Typical Analysis:

  • Color: 6.0º Lovibond 
  • Fermentability: 75%
  • Solids: 97%
  • 1.043 PPG

Must have inventory for any home brewer
I use this mostly for yeast starters but always keep 3-5lbs on hand for when my mash decides to come up short. I hate it when that happens. Powdery brew day insurance ftw. Moorebeer packages in a nice thick multiple-mil bag. Once you open it, you'll want to reseal that bad boy or it will pull all the moisture out of the air and turn to hard candy. I recommend one of those vacuum sealer food bag systems.

A little here. A little there.
I pitch my yeast the day before I brew. I use this for my ale yeast pitch and a lil kick extra in the boil too. Works like a champ!

the start of something great !
Love the fact that these DME's come in the half pound size in all varieties. I use these to start my yeast for my 10 gal ,yield, all grain batches of beer. Starting the yeast in a flask on the stir plate gets things off to the races quickly and I have never had a failure, due to starting the yeast proofs the viability.

I suppose it is as good an extract as all the rest. Handy to have for yeast starters and such. Can't live without it.

Great for making yeast starters.
I boil 1 liter of water with 100 grams of DME for 10 minutes, then cool to 70 F, pour into a sanitized 1 gallon jug, add yeast, cover with sanitized nylon mesh and loose aluminum foil, and put on a stir plate for about 24 hours. This gives me a liter of good starter for my next batch of beer. It has worked very well.
