4.9 / 5.020 ReviewsPrime timeI use DME as my primer, and Pilsen light is perfect for summertime brews like Kolsch. The neutral color barely affects the hue of the final product, if at all.Bears for Briess!May 14, 2018Purchased
6 months agoextraI always keep a bag or two on hand.. You can raise the gravity of your beer or use it in place of priming sugar if you have the time to spare. Priming sugar primes a little faster and leaves no added taste to your beer.March 31, 2017Purchased
1 year agoOrder was completed as requestedOrder was completed as requestedDecember 23, 2015Good for a lighter touch to ipaI was pleased with the outcome when I substituted the pilsen dme for the golden light which I had been using. The result was a bit lighter color and a slightly less malty taste, which allowed the hops flavor and aroma to shine.December 22, 2015Pilsen maltsI can always count on Midwest to have the highest quality ingredients, customer service is excellent, orders are correctly filled and shipped. My favorite style are the Belgians.December 22, 2015Good Pilsner malt taste and no DMSThis is one of the better dry malt extracts in terms of flavor. It also saves me time compapred to mashing all grain because Id need to boil for 90 minutes.April 8, 2014In cas eyou miss your OGIf you miss your original gravity, just boil some water and add this and you have the extra needed fermentables. A a starter the flavor will have minimal impact on your beer and the yeast love it._x000D_February 8, 2014GreatA solid dry Malt. I use this for most of my yeast starters. nice light color. good flavor. will use again.January 25, 2014Great for yeast startersI don't particularly care fore light beers but I brewed with it one time just to see the results. The results were a very light crisp ale. If you like light beer this stuff is great, but not for me I prefer to use it on my yeast startersJanuary 24, 2014Big time saverPilsner malt has to be boiled for 90 minutes, this can be added during the last 15 to sterilize. The only reason for a longer boil is the hops oil extraction. Even for all grain, using this saves 30 minutes of boil time (60 vs 90). It doesn't taste as good as all grain, but it's still ok.December 21, 2013

Browse 2 questions Browse 2 questions and 2 answersHow much should I use for 30 gallons of mash?BEST ANSWER: It depends on the desired ABV of your beer, but a typical 7% beer would use between 6 and 7 pounds of dme per 5 gallon batch. So a 30 gallon batch size would require 36-42 pounds of dme. I use dme instead of base malt, so I'd also add to this your adjunct malts.can this be added to wine to boost it's alcohol level?BEST ANSWER: DME is typically only used in beer making. Regular table sugar will work better for wine as it is more fermentable and will not add malty flavors to the wine.
