4.8 / 5.08 ReviewsMakes a good Warsteiner cloneI used a jug and made a good 5 gallon Warsteiner clone. I fermented at 55F for 2 weeks then raised the temperature to room temperature. I got good attenuation which is not always the case for extract. Good flavor and easy to use.March 13, 2014good extractFresh as always from Midwest. I'm not a huge fan of pilsen malt. Too "grainy" for me. But this extract definitely captures what you'd get from an all grain mash.December 17, 2016Purchased
over 2 years agoWE used this malt for a bee hive ale. Still waiting on the batch to finish.July 12, 2018Purchased
3 months agoTop NotchI used the syrup in conjunction with a dried Pilsen malt. My thinking was to give my yeast the syrup as a good jump start and then it would use up the dry as it developed. It seems to work well as my yeast was finished in just over a week. And I love the flavor of the combination.April 4, 2018Purchased

6 months agoBeer isn't done yet, too soon to tell the effect on flavor.It was ok, but most recipes call for 6.6 lbs of LME and this was only 6.0. To have enough fermentable I had to add DME.May 25, 2018Purchased
5 months agomalt changeI have used Alexander pale malt extract for 20 years, but am about to try your Mallard pilsner for the first time. Right now my fermenter is tied up with a blueberry mead, so it will be a while before I have an opinion on the new extract.January 11, 2016
