Description

  • Golden Light is an excellent choice as a base or to boost gravity. Slightly darker and richer in biscuity/bready flavors than Pilsen extract
  • DME can be used as 100% of your fermentable sugar in extract brewing
  • Add for color correction, boost gravity, or improve head retention in all grain brewing
  • Briess Malt & Ingredients has had a focus on quality and innovation for more than 140 years, with all of their products being made in the U.S.A.

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 Light DME: 100% pure malt extract made from 99% base malt,1% Carapils® Malt, and 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.

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.
