Pale Dry Malt Extract (DME) – for making beer
Malted Barley is a barley grain that is germinated up to a specific point and then dried. The malted grain is then mashed with water allowing the enzymes to break down the various starches and proteins that exist in the grain. The insoluble fibre in the husk is then removed and the resultant sugary liquid is then concentrated viscous liquid call malt extract syrup. The liquid is then dried into a free-flowing hygroscopic fine powder with the same malty taste as the liquid malt syrup to make dry malt extract.
DME is used as a malt grain replacement or brew extender in beer brewing. This Pale Dry Malt Extract has a more pronounced malt flavour, making it an excellent malt base for any beer style. Well suited for Pale Ales, American Bocks and English style ales, IPA’s and all darker style beers. If you are making a darker beer you simply steep darker speciality grains to obtain the flavour and colour you are looking for.
The pale dry malt extract is a pale yellow powder that smells of toffee and cookies. Read more about extracts on Beer and Brewing’s website.
