Ingredients (Extract5 gal)

  • 0.25 lbs 2-Row Caramel Malt 10L; Briess

    2-Row Caramel Malt 10L; Briess

    Golden color and a candy like sweetness. Characteristics & Applications: • In contrast to Brewers Malt, glassiness is a distinguishing characteristic of Caramel Malt. The glassy endosperm creates the desirable non-fermentable components giving true Caramel Malt the ability to contribute body (mouthfeel), foam foam retention, and extended beer stability, while contributing color and unique caramel flavor. • Caramel 10L is a roasted caramel malt that imparts golden color. • Use 3-7% for Pilsener-style beers for balance. • Use 5-15% to provide color, sweetness and color to light amber beers. • Produced from AMBA/BMBRI recommended 2-Row Malting Barley varieties.

  • 0.25 lbs Cara-Pils® Malt; Briess

    Cara-Pils® Malt; Briess

    Characteristics & Applications: • The endosperm is completely glassy and will appear to be darker than standard Brewers Malt. • Carapils® is a very unique dextrine-style malt that adds body, foam retention, and beer stability without influencing color or flavor. • Use to upgrade all types of beer, including light colored beers. • The non-fermentables in Carapils® are very advantageous in balancing body and flavor of dark colored beers. • May be used with or without other specialty malts. • Low usage of 1-5% will help achieve desired results. • Produced from AMBA/BMBRI recommended 2-Row Malting Barley varieties.

  • 5.00 lbs CBW® Pilsen Light Powder (Dry Malt Extract); Briess

    CBW® Pilsen Light Powder (Dry Malt Extract); Briess

    Neutral to subtle flavor. Characteristics & Applications: • CBW® Pilsen Light is a liquid, 100% pure malted barley extract made from 100% Briess malts and water. It is the lightest pure malted barley extract available and produces a very crisp, clear wort. • CBW® Pilsen Light can be used in the production of all extract beer styles and to adjust the color, flavor and gravity of all grain beers. • Advantages of using extract in a brewhouse include: o Save time. o Increase capacity/boost productivity. o Extends the brew size by adding malt solids to the wort. o Boost gravity. o Adjust color. o Improve body and head retention. • Briess Malt & Ingredients Company is the only vertically integrated malting company in North America. That means we make our pure malt extracts from our own malt so you are assured of receiving only the fullest flavored, freshest, pure malt extracts for top brewhouse performance.

  • Fermentis S-33 Safbrew S-33

    Fermentis S-33 Safbrew S-33

    A very popular general purpose yeast, displaying both very robust conservation properties and consistent performance. This yeast produces superb flavour profiles and is used for the production of a varied range of top fermented special beers (Belgian type wheat beers, Trappist, etc.). Sedimentation: medium. Final gravity: high. Also recommended for bottle-conditioning of beers. Excellent performance in beers with alcohol contents of up to 7.5% v/v but can ferment up to 11.5% v/v.Pitching instructions: Re-hydrate the dry yeast into yeast cream in a stirred vessel prior to pitching. Sprinkle the dry yeast in 10 times its own weight of sterile water or wort at 27C ± 3C. Once the expected weight of dry yeast is reconstituted into cream by this method (this takes about 15 to 30 minutes), maintain a gentle stirring for another 30 minutes. Then pitch the resultant cream into the fermentation vessel. Alternatively, pitch dry yeast directly in the fermentation vessel providing the temperature of the wort is above 20C. Progressively sprinkle the dry yeast into the wort ensuring the yeast covers all the surface of wort available in order to avoid clumps. Leave for 30 minutes and then mix the wort e.g. using aeration.
