For home brewers formulating recipes with flavor, color and aroma characteristics gained from steeped grain, dark malt extract provides the fermentable and unfermentable sugars in a myriad of beer styles.
House Brewer Notes:
Base malt extract for producing a myriad of dark ale and lager and is superb in the formulation of Stout, Porter, Black Lager or Brown Ale. Dark Dried Malt Extract improves the body of beers, adding extra rich malt flavor and natural color.
Kicker amount of dry extract will typically add .009 points of gravity in most recipes. HomeBrewChicago recommends using malt extract for quick adjustments of deficient gravity in all grain recipes.
