A dark malt extract fantastic for the production of Porter, Stouts, or any other dark beer. Made from a mix of Base Malt, Munich, Caramel 60, and Black Malt, this extract will make an amazingly rich wort. Use it in any beer that you’re looking for an intensely malty flavor along with a dark color.
Packaged in oxygen barrier foil bags that keep the extract from oxidizing. Does fresh extract make a difference ...decide for yourself!
We recommend customers to store their extract in the refrigerator if they do not plan on using it within 8 weeks.
This liquid malt extract yields about 1.035 gravity points per pound of malt extract per gallon of water. For example if you used 5 lbs of extract in a 5 gallon batch it would yield a 1.035 starting gravity. Another way to think of it is that for each pound of liquid extract someone adds to their recipe they are adding 7 pts of gravity. In a 5 gallon batch: 5 lbs - 1.035 6 lbs - 1.042 7 lbs - 1.049 8 lbs - 1.056 9 lbs - 1.063 10lbs - 1.070
When substituting dry malt extract for liquid malt extract (or vise-versa) remember that it is a 4-to-5 ratio (dry to liquid). For example, if your recipe calls for 4 lbs. dry malt extract, but you'd rather use liquid, you'll want to use 5 lbs. instead.
