4.9 / 5.012 ReviewsI use this for American Pale AlesI love the rich caramel flavor this DME provides in my American Pale Ales and IPA's. I recommend adding a little at a time to the brew pot and stirring in order to avoid clumping.December 18, 2012Goes well in a Pale AleA great dry malt extract, provides a good flavor for my Brown and Pale Ales. I wouldn't use a darker DME. Instead I'd steep specialty grains for extra color._x000D__x000D_It can be kind of pain to work with because it sticks to anything thats moist.January 15, 2013Good for making beer and startersI like the DME for making starters because its so convenient._x000D_Its very easy to measure and use. Just keep water away from it._x000D_Measure out what you need and keep the bag away from moisture. Then pour in the DME quickly before it sticks.March 22, 2013Good dry maltI like using this malt extract in Pales Ales and IPAs, and even brown ales. It's easier to work with than liquid malt extract, and adds a nice flavor. I also use it for making yeast starters.April 13, 2013Good for making yest startersI always keep a pound in stock for making yest starters. 100 grams in a flask, then add water to 1 liter. Just make sure when you pour it in there is no water vapor nearby because this stuff will stick to anything at the slightest hint of water.July 29, 2013good for making yeast starters or to kick up a batchI use 100 grams per liter when making a yeast starter. I also use this occasionally if I get a low conversion and want a little more alcohol. As long as you keep it away from water, its easy to use. Just don't pour it directly over something steaming else the steam will cause it to clump in the bag.August 24, 2013sparkling amberGood DME. Makes beer that is medium in color. You may wish to steep grains with your beer to add more body and flavor.September 12, 2013Made a Great Amber AleUsed this in combination with some liquid Munich Malt and honey to make a honey amber ale. The results were fantastic. The malt provided an excellent flavor the the brew and fermented out completely. Would use again in a heartbeat.October 11, 2013Great DMEI used 1 lb of this in a brown ale recipe. It smelled amazing in the brew kettle as I was mixing it in!October 18, 2013Good stuffI love the amber DME. It gives the beer a richer darker appearance and in my opinion a little more caramel flavor. I always keep an extra bag on hand to boost gravity, for yeast starters, to carbonate in case I run out of corn sugar, or just for a spur of the moment brew.January 15, 2014
