4.9 / 5.020 ReviewsMunton Light vs. Briess Golden LightJust "A/B" tested Munton vs Briess. The Munton was a bit more orange, Briess a bit more yellow. Briess held a head better, Munton I would use a specialty grain with to achieve a similar result. Both were "full- bodied" tasting, the Briess being a bit brighter and Munton more on the subtle and toasty side.July 2, 2016Keep on handI am mainly an all-grain brewer but I always keep a bag of this DME on hand. If I miss my gravity by a point or two, I can always add a little DME without changing the flavor of the beer. It is also great for making yeast starters.December 5, 2012Good maltThis dme worked well, was fresh and dissolved quickly. Muntons makes quality malt products.October 9, 2011VersatileI always try to keep a pound or two of this stuff around. I only All-grain but it works well as a band-aid for brew day mishaps. Also excellent for yeast starters; I haven't noticed any off flavors. Would recommend maybe putting it in a tub rather than keeping it in the bag, my bag has no way to seal and keep fresh. Also has a tendency to become the stickiest liquid ever once wet and on your counter.January 7, 2013Always StockThis is one of those things that I must always keep handy. Perfect for yeast starters and/or adding some fermentables to the beer when you come a bit short on your preboil gravity. It also keeps for a long time which makes buying in bulk much more attractive.February 1, 2013solid productAwesome product. Doesn't give beer to much flavor and dissolves fast unlike some other DMEsMarch 13, 2013Wort Booster!Boosted a batch of Stout with 1lb of this. Turned out very good.December 28, 2017Purchased

Browse 1 question Browse 1 question and 3 answersCan you brew a 5 gallon batch of beer from dry malt extract and if so, how many pounds per gallon?BEST ANSWER: I prefer to use DME and find Munton and Fison to be superior. I generally use 6 lbs. for a five gallon batch. This produces a wort with a specific gravity of about 1.055. If fermented to a final gravity of 1.010 this will yield a beer with about 6% alcohol by volume. Happy brewing!
