Description

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.

Pilsen DME: 99% Pilsen Malt; 1% Carapils Malt; Water

Pilsen Light is the lightest DME available from Briess. With a subtle malty flavor, it can be used in the production of any beer style, either as a base or to boost gravity.  

Typical Analysis:

  • Color: 2.0º Lovibond (8º Plato)
  • Fermentability: 75%
  • Solids: 97%
  • 1.043 PPG

Hitting High Gravity
I brew mostly belgian style ales but my mash tun is limited to about 10 pounds of grain. My process could be described as "Mostly Mash" and I use this product to hit the higher required SGs of 1.060+. I've brewed 30 to 40 batches using this product and have been very happy with the results.

My favorite DME.
I love this stuff because it the only dry extract I have ever found that actually produces a pale wort. It is perfect for making yeast cultures.
