Briess Brewers 2-Row Malt

Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

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!

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.

Perfect for My Two-Hearted Clone
I'm a bit of novice, but the result sure tasted like the original.

Seems like a good base malt!
Just used it yesterday in an IPA. Won't know for sure until we taste it in a few weeks, but it seemed very good!

Not much to say about 2-row...
I figured it was worth trying, being on sale, but with most of my specialty malts already being Breiss, this is delivering on quality.

Worked great for many different recipes.
I used this as my base grain for my first brew day which included: 2 ales, porter, stout, and IPA. Excellent quality product!
