Description

Ultralight is one the lightest Malt Extract available anywhere and has a great malty, grain flavor. The color is so light because it is made from 100% 2-row base malt. Our manufacturer also uses a minimum amount of heat, and a slower evaporation to reduce the carmelization found in most other extracts. This extract is mashed around 152 degrees which results in beers with great malt flavor yet good fermentability.  We use it in a majority of our Recipe Kits.  It is unbeatable for light colored Pale Ales and amazing in IPA's where it lets the hops become the focus.  If you are making a darker beer you can simply steep darker specialty grains to obtain the flavor and color you are looking for.

Packaged in a special metallic, oxygen barrier bag that unlike plastic jugs does not allow any oxidation to occur. Does fresh extract make a difference? Decide for yourself!

We recommend customers store their extract in the refrigerator if they do not plan on using it within 8 weeks.

great value
I use a partial-mash technique and this is a excellent low-cost base LME - I've made tasty pales, IPA's, brown ales, and fake bocks with this as the base. Every brew gets great compliments.

I like the nice malt character it lends to my session IPA! It balances well with my usual heavy doses of hops!

Great Results
I have had great results with this product. It helps to warm the LME bag in a warm water bath prior to adding it to the brew pot. Be sure to turn the heat completely off prior to adding the LME.

Fresh
LME was fresh and light in color after the 60 min boil... I've had bad experiences before with old LME from other online retailers. The old LME gets the darker it gets

Good stuff.
I used my 3 pounds as the base for a brown ale and really liked the taste of the hydrometer sample.
