Prime time
I 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.

I 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.

Good for a lighter touch to ipa
I 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.

Good Pilsner malt taste and no DMS
This 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.

In cas eyou miss your OG
If 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_

Great for yeast starters
I 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 starters

Big time saver
Pilsner 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.

How much should I use for 30 gallons of mash?
A shopper on Feb 19, 2018
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?
Roger V on Aug 4, 2016
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.
