Description

Ultralight is one the lightest Malt Extract available anywhere and has a great malty, grain flavor. The color is so light because it is made from 100% 2-row base malt. Our manufacturer also uses a minimum amount of heat, and a slower evaporation to reduce the carmelization found in most other extracts. This extract is mashed around 152 degrees which results in beers with great malt flavor yet good fermentability.  We use it in a majority of our Recipe Kits.  It is unbeatable for light colored Pale Ales and amazing in IPA's where it lets the hops become the focus.  If you are making a darker beer you can simply steep darker specialty grains to obtain the flavor and color you are looking for.

Packaged in a special metallic, oxygen barrier bag that unlike plastic jugs does not allow any oxidation to occur. Does fresh extract make a difference? Decide for yourself!

We recommend customers store their extract in the refrigerator if they do not plan on using it within 8 weeks.

Looking for a ten pound option which my recipe calls for. Can you do this?

BEST ANSWER: Hi George - Unfortunately, we do not offer a ten pound option. We do offer two 5 pounders though.

Fresh LME @ a good price
MoreBeer has great packaging for their LME's. This LME works for all my styles that don't need the amber color or flavor. A very solid choice of LME at a great price & Fresh as a Daisy too. Salud

Great Color
I'm new to brewing -- in my first three batches with a different brand of LME, the finished product has turned out WAAAY darker than I wanted. This is the first one to give me the color I was looking for. My blonde ale turned out beautiful. I couldn't be happier.

Response from MoreFlavor
Great to hear! We try to offer the freshest ingredients. When LME goes out of date the color it lends will darken.

Love this ultra light malt. Gives a nice golden color, light taste of malt, not over powering and allows for the hops to really shine.

Good Malt Extract
I've used this extract with excellent results. A quality product at a good price.

Great flavor
Do not make the mistake of leaving this LME in the refrigerator until it is ready to go into the kettle. Ask me how I know. This stuff is very thick and sticky. Frankly, it can be a mess to work with. However, the flavor is excellent and the resulting beer tends to be as well. The light/oxygen barrier packaging shows MB's dedication to quality.
