Description

Briess Brewers 2-Row is a fantastic base malt that can be used for all beer styles. Briess 2-row contributes a clean, sweet, and slightly malty character along with a light straw color. Briess Brewers Malt is malted in Wisconsin in small batches and is an excellent fit for all ales. Use this the same as you would any 2 row base malt and expect amazing results in your glass.

Briess is an American malting company that is vertically integrated with seed facilities, barley collection facilities, and direct relationships with farmers in the state of Wyoming. In this region malt is flood irrigated so that it does not have to rely on rainfall. This has the benefits of quality and consistency for you the brewer. Malt that is flood irrigated is lighter in color since the barley heads see very little rain. The flood irrigation is also consistent and reliable so Briess sees less variability in their malt from year to year. 

MoreBeer! visited the Briess malting facilities in Wisconsin and this is a true American company that is still privately held by the Briess family. The late Roger Briess was a huge supporter of homebrewing and attended and sponsored homebrewing events. Yes we like the malt and also the company!

Because shipping cost for the 50lb bag and a mill made it cost prohibitive

It was less expensive than the great western 2-row I usually use so I thought I would give it a whirl.

Solid
This is my go to base malt for most of the American style beers I make. It is always consistent and reliable for whatever recipe I throw it in where I want a clean light taste to my creation. Add some Pale Malt to get a bit more flavor and mouth feel to what you want and this malt just fills in the blanks for you.

Perfect 2-row
Would always recommend briess 2-row. This is the best 2-row for hitting your pre boil expected gravity. Never fails

Excellent Value
Great flavor and aroma at a lower cost. It does fall a little short on the points per gallon, but at the price, an extra hand full or 2 doesn't bother me.
