Ultralight Malt Extract (LME)
Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

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.

Love this ultra light malt. Gives a nice golden color, light taste of malt, not over powering and allows for the hops to really shine.

Good Malt Extract
I've used this extract with excellent results. A quality product at a good price.

Great flavor
Do not make the mistake of leaving this LME in the refrigerator until it is ready to go into the kettle. Ask me how I know. This stuff is very thick and sticky. Frankly, it can be a mess to work with. However, the flavor is excellent and the resulting beer tends to be as well. The light/oxygen barrier packaging shows MB's dedication to quality.

Exellent LME
In a lot of ways I wish I could go back to LME. This has great flavor. It saves at least an hour on brewing day over all-grain. It is always fresh and delicious from MoreBeer.

good malt, bad bags
On Multiple orders ive had everything covered in LME. They use thick bags but they constantly puncture....buyer beware

Fresh and very fermentable
I've made quite a few batches with morebeer's extract here and have been quite happy with it. It's highly fermentable so if you are having some beers get stuck at 1.020 range with your local stuff, this could help. People mistake my beer for all grain all the time using this extract. Just add more steeping grains to make dark beers with it as well. Can't go wrong for the price either.
