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

Use to carbonate beer.
I use this in place of corn sugar for carbonating my beer. I use 3/4C malt to 2 cups boiling water. Boil 5 minutes then add to the wort immediately. Stir for a minute and fill and cap bottles. Sample after 21 days.

Go to DME
This is my go to DME for Yeast Starters. I purchase only one type of DME to simplify things and since this is the lightest SRM DME MoreBeer has it seemed a no brainer. It doesn't change anything color-wise on either a light beer or a dark beer when you pitch your Yeast Starter.
This always seems fresh and is simple to use.

Versatile use malt extract
I’ve used this product for yeast starters, standard saisons, brett saisons, and American wild ales. It produces a great backbone for any beer and mixes easily for making starters. With a little creativity you can use this one product to make a myriad of different beers.
