4.7 / 5.07 ReviewsBase maltThe beer I made with this base malt tasted as good as any other I've made. It has a darker color and is good for stouts and porters. Just keep it away from water when pouring it in, the water vapor caused it to stick together.June 12, 2013munton darkI like to use it in my stouts for an authentic english flavor. good color and flavor.September 9, 2013Good for PortersIt makes a good Porter. All I need to do is steep some specialty grains like Chocolate malt and add some Dark DME and I've got myself a good Porter.September 21, 2013Great for Yeast StarterUsed this as a yeast starter for my oatmeal stout - worked perfectly! Fast & Furious!December 3, 2013Boosts gravity in a StoutMy Stout came out with a lower original gravity than I expected. I mixed in a bag of this DME, and helped get it to where it needed to be. Good tasting, and the yeast love it.February 17, 2014Good malt.This isn't a bad malt by any means. I've used it in a porter and stout and achieved a very rich/dark color. Mind you though I did use chocolate malt and other darker variety malts. I find that this malt adds a nicely developed malt flavor to the beer. However, I would almost suggest buying a lighter malt. The reason I suggest this is that you can always add more color to your beer through specialty grains but to take away color is nearly impossible unless you want to just add way too much water to the brew.April 25, 2013Has its pros and consAdded this to an Irish stout to help boost the ABV. I would suggest pouring it in something glass before adding to the brew because the steam made it stick to the inside of the bag. In the end I think it really helped bring out the chocolate flavors in the beer. Need to use more than 1 bag tho as .5% more ABV just isn't enough.August 14, 2013
