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

It is DME.
I would never snort a line of the stuff. Pretty sure you use it to make beer. That’s what I did with it.

Perfect for yeast starters
I'm an all-grain brewer. But I need to make yeast starters for my beers. So I use 1 cup of DME in 1600 ml of water to make a starter of appropriate gravity. Makes great starters.
