Malt extract is a powerful homebrewing ingredient, especially for beginners, as it takes out variables like hitting mash temperatures and volumes. All-grain homebrewers can use it to supplement sugars in a “big” brew or help reach a target gravity if you fell short.
Malt extract most commonly comes in liquid or dry form. Liquid malt extract (LME) is a molasses-like consistency, while dry malt extract (DME) is more of a fine powder. Extracts come in different types depending on the grains used in production. Extra-pale, pale, golden, amber, pilsner, wheat and dark are just a few of the options available to homebrewers.
Crafted Bottlers malt extracts are all UNHOPPED. Pre-hopped liquid malt extract is typically found in "big box" store brew kits, however it is rarely used in the homebrewing community.
