Malt extract including gold malt, amber malt, dark malt and wheat malt

WindRiver Malt Extracts- Malt extract is an extract from barley malt. In basic terms it is concentrated unfermented beer. First the grains are "mashed" which converts the starches in the barley grain into sugar. Then this "wort" is reduced to a thick syrup by boiling it under a vacuum This then leaves a liquid that has the consistency of molasses. We are proud to offer the best in malt extracts, from Briess Malting located close to us in Chilton Wisconsin. We buy in bulk then package the malt ourselves, passing the savings on to you.

Our innovative Cryovac clipped tied bags couldn't be easier to use. Just cut an end off and squeeze into your brew pot. No jugs or cans to rinse out. We think you will find a great improvement in these extracts over canned malt extracts. Can be used in place of canned malt extracts in all recipes. We carry the malt in 3.3 lb sizes (the equivalent of one standard can of malt) or in the larger 6lb size. All of our extracts come un-hopped We believe that the best way to use hops when making beer is by using pelletized hops for bittering instead of using hopped extracts. You will get a better flavor and the hop amounts can be adjusted for taste.

Important note: If you are going to store your beer kits or ingredients more than a week or two, keep them refrigerated. Keeping your ingredients in the refrigerator will ensure that they stay their freshest.

Dry Malt Extract- The drying process forces most of the water out of the extract leaving only the solids behind, making it 20% more concentrated than liquid. (i.e. 3 lbs. of dry malt extract will yield 20% more than 3 lbs of liquid malt extract.) Many brewers like dry malt extract since it is more easily weighed for smaller amounts. Available in 3 lb packages.
