4.9 / 5.013 ReviewsEconomicalIf you brew a lot, these are a great value for the money. I can go through this in a couple of months. The beer tastes great. Plus I consider it a big bonus they were made with Carapils because that adds foam stability, body, and mouth feel.January 25, 2013Great for the monthly brewer.I used about 2/3 of this in brewing a triple IPA and an Oaked Vanilla Bourbon Imperial Milk Stout. You cannot get a better value on malt if you are a partial or full extract brewer. Tastes great and provides plenty of fuel for the yeast in high alcohol beers.March 1, 201333 lb jugI buy these to help save money. i split them up into smaller jugs or even zip lock bags. Then I freeze them.September 21, 2013Great value but it won't last forever.I've used three of these in the past 6 months and have been quite satisfied with final product. It's obviously a really cheap way to buy LME. _x000D__x000D_A warning though, despite the high sugar content the malt might mold, as I've just discovered. _x000D__x000D_If you think this is a risk I can recommend the pack of 6 LME's. Next time I'm trying the large bags of dry malt extract.November 22, 2011Great valueThe taste is good, the extract is always fresh. As a bonus it has Carapils in it for head retention. I brew 10 gallon batches so this is good for 3 brews, and is gone in a couple of months so it never gets stale. Its the most economical way of buying liquid malt extract.April 20, 2013The best value I've seenFresh and good tasting. When we brew, we make 10 gallon batches, so we use a lot of extract. We can use half of this in one session, and the entire container in a month. So we go through several of these years.June 6, 2013great for frequent brewersI brew 10 gallon batches every 2-4 weeks so this offers excellent value to me. I use it up withing a couple of months so it doesnt go bad. Its fresh and tasted good. It's light enough that I can use it for many beers.August 31, 2013Very good valueYou get a lot of extract for a good price. I brew a couple of times a month and this never lasts a season, so it never goes bad. Very sticky, but we all know that.September 24, 2013EconomicalI make 10 gallon brews and use up a pail in 1-2 months, so freshness is never a problem. I get good fermentables at rock bottom prices. I can use this for all my ales and add additional grains as needed.January 27, 2014Economical but hard to work withAlthough this is the cheapest and most efficient way to buy LME, and I'm satisfied with the results of using Golden Light LME in my beer, the large growler of it is rather unwieldy. The syrup pours slowly and is hard to measure out precisely. The wide mouth makes it easier to pour, but also makes it harder to not get sticky drippings all over. I would recommend spending the extra cash on a bulk pack of far-more-manageable 3.3 or 6 pound jugs, if you can spare it.February 13, 2014
