Description

  • Pilsen Light has a subtle malty flavor and is the lightest DME available from Briess. 
  • 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.

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