3/17/2016 – Do you have 100% Barley dry malt extract?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, we do. We have 1 lb, 3 lb, 6 lb and 50 lb bags available in light, amber and dark. All are 100% dry malt extract.See links below.
2/12/2014 – Does DME contain amylase for converting starches like the malt or are they denatured in the process?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Dry malt extract has already gone thru the conversion process and is, in effect, malt sugar. No amylase is necessary.
10/28/2013 – Will there any noticeable difference in flavor between light, amber, and dark DME?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes. Amber and dark DME are made from a combination of grains, such as 2-row, 6-row and chocolate. Maybe even a little toasted malt. As you might expect, these additions add a little "chocolaty and toasty" flavors. Depending on how much DME is used it can be quite noticeable.
7/3/2013 – Is the HH Dry Malt Extract you sell unhopped?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes. All of our dry malt extracts are unhopped.
3/24/2013 – I am looking for pricing and availability of Pilsen DME. Do you carry it and please provide pricing and availability. I would like to place and order.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The term "Pilsen DME" is simply light, or extra light dry malt extract. Just a different name for it. The extra light version is often dry malt extract mixed with a portion of rice malt extra (to keep it very light in color). We call it American Style DME.See the products linked below.
3/6/2013 – Is there any difference in flavor between light, amber, and dark DME?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, some. The amber and dark dry malt extracts have a more "roasted" flavor due to the addition of roasted grains (usually chocolate malt and/or roasted barley) prior to mashing.
10/17/2010 – I have 6.5 gallons of fermenting cider in my primary right now. This is my 3rd year making hard cider conditioned in the bottle. This year I would like to have some sweetness/maltiness in the finished cider. I talked to one of your employees and he recommended using malt extract for priming which leaves some unfermentable sugars. I do . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: I have successfully used amber dry malt extract in a cider. Actually, I used about 1 lb at the beginning of the fermentation, and then also used about 1.5 cups when I primed the 5 gallon batch.If you use some lactose, I would add it at the end of fermentation, prior to bottling. I don't believe that lactic bacteria would be an issue.
5/17/2010 – what is your phone number?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: We can be reached at (425) 355-8865Our toll free order number is (800) 850-2739
10/1/2009 – I'm want to brew a Cooper's or Muntons hopped can beer kit with two pounds of DME. should I boil these for a short period of time before adding to primary fermenter?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Altho these are billed as "no-boil kits" we believe that a short (15 minute or so) boil will improve your beer. We like to add a little crystal malt to the water while it is coming up to a boil as well, removing it before the boil. A small amount of hops just before removing from the heat is also good. These two additions will add real . . .
7/17/2009 – Im a new Brew Master, the kit I received is Muntons Gold (British) It says to add "Light Spraymalt" to the bottles. Whats that in english? (so to speak). Your web site is now the bible in my favorites...Thank You
Response From Homebrew Heaven: That is the Brit word for dry malt extract. Same thing. The term comes from the drying process used to produce dry malt extract. It is actually sprayed in a vacuum chamber to take all the water out.
7/15/2009 – I have used White Pure Cane Granulated Sugar for the additional 2 pounds. Can I use that with this Malt or would you recommend Corn Sugar?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: I would definately recommend using1) Dry malt extract, or 2) corn sugarfor the additional 2 pounds. Either one will improve your beer. Dry malt extract (DME) will add a richer, malty flavor. Corn sugar will be lighter in color, but not as malty.For my tastes, I go with malt extract. Especially with an IPA which has lots of hops . . .
6/7/2009 – New to this... What's the difference between using the dry malt extract (much cheaper) or the liquid malt extract?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: They are fundamentally the same products, it's just that the malt extract syrup has about 20% water content, and the dry malt extract is well...dry. It is used in different proportions as well. If a recipe calls for 7 lbs of malt extract syrup, you can substitute about 5 lbs of dry malt extract to make the same beer.
3/19/2009 – In your opinion which is better LME or DME? I've done a few of your kits (they're great!) now I want to try a recipe beer from scratch...
Response From Homebrew Heaven: LME (liquid malt extract syrup) and DME (dry malt extract powder) are exactly the same (in terms of quality), in my opinion. The only real difference is that LME contains about 20% water. Any recipe can be "adjusted" accordingly to obtain the same starting gravity.LME can also discolor somewhat with prolonged storage. DME does not. . . .
1/2/2009 – what is included here? what else would i need?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: As far as ingredients, you'll also need to add some fermentables. We like light dry malt extract (3 lbs) but you can also use corn sugar. Reserve about a cup for when you bottle. You'll also need some water...Standard brewing equipment is used (brewpot, fermenter, siphon hose, capper, caps etc).
10/17/2008 – Some recipes call for malt syrup, some for dry extract. If a recipe calls for 7 lbs of malt syrup but I have dry extract I want to use how much should I use? What is the conversion factor?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: I this case, you would use about 5.5 lbs of dry malt extract. Use about 20% less dry malt extract compared to malt syrup.
9/26/2008 – I'm trying to follow a recipe and wanted the equivalent of 7.6 lbs of LME in DME. Would this be about 6 lbs (with a bit left over)? It also states that the SRM should be about 8.0. I was thinking the Amber DME would be the closest, or would the light be closer or a combination?Thankyou!
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, six pounds would be about right. I would go with the light DME however. OR try 3 lbs of each (light and amber)!
7/22/2008 – What is the lovibond of the light DME?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Approximately 1.5 to 3 lovibond
5/16/2008 – What is the preferred storing method for the DME? What is the shelf-life?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: DME (dry malt extract) is really a pretty stable product. It's sworn enemy is water and moisture.Dry malt extract should be stored just like grains. As long as the DME is dry, and sealed away from oxygen and moisture, you can buy in bulk, and use it for up to about 1 year. This assumes you keep it away from sunlight and maintain the temperature . . .
1/26/2008 – I live about an hour (if traffic is good) from the address on your website. Do you have an actual store or is everything here based solely online?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, we have an actual brick-and-mortar store in Everett, WA. People actually walk in and buy stuff!Our address is:Homebrew Heaven9121 Evergreen WayEverett, WA 98204Heck, you can actually call us on the phone, too! It's 425-355-8865. A person will actually answer as long as it's business hours!
3/19/2007 – Is it best to go 50/50 with DME and corn sugar, or all DME. IF I use all DME in the cooper canadian blonde kit, what would the alcohol content be? I was under the impression that the more sugar used the higher the alcohol content.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: For more of a malt flavor and body, use 100% malt extract. Both malt extract and corn sugar ARE sugars, i.e. both will raise the alcohol content. Approximately 0.75% alcohol for DME, and 1% for corn sugar (in 5 gallons).
2/11/2007 – What additional malt should I use to brew?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: About 2 lbs of light dry malt extract would be a good choice.
1/31/2007 – I'm interested in purchasing pale malted barley. I would prefer to use an extract versus using grain brewing. It appears that the pale malt extract syrup would be the appropriate extract. I prefer using dry extracts. Which of the DME's is equivalent to this extract syrup?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Usually, the term "pale malted barley" refers to grain, like 2-row. Malt extract is what is made FRoM it. For a dry malt extract, that would be our HH Dry Malt Extract - Light. Here is a link to that category.
1/28/2007 – I bought 2- 3.75lb. cans Coopers Draught Ale. I want to brew a 5 gallon batch. Am I correct that I will use 1 full can of the malt extract and 2 lbs. more out of the 2nd can? Would that be about right or should I use 2 lbs. of corn sugar instead? Which is better?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Not usually. You see the Cooper's "kits", like this one, are hopped malt extracts. If you add more from the 2nd can, you are also adding more hops. Most people (and this is how the recipe reads) add 2 lbs to 2.5 lbs of corn sugar to one can of extract. As far as the BEST way to do it (in my not so humble opinion), is to use dry malt . . .
12/25/2006 – Instead of adding sugar to one of these kits, can I simply double up - use 2 cans - for a 5 gallon batch?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: You can do that, but since these are hopped extract kits, you will also be doubling up on your bittering hops. A good alternative is to add about 2-3 lbs of dry malt extract instead of sugar. This adds additional flavor, and body to your beer that sugar does not.
11/11/2006 – Can I use 2 cans of the coopers malt extract (stout) to yeild 5 gal.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, you can do that. It will be extra hoppy and strong, is all. To stay more "true to style" you would normally add about 2 lbs of corn sugar or dry malt extract (preferred).
11/5/2006 – I live in Seattle, can I come and pick up the bottles in Everett? Do you have a "brick and mortar" store?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: You sure can. It is literally made of bricks and mortar, in South Everett. Our address is:Homebrew Heaven9121 Evergreen WayEverett, WA 98204425-355-8865Hours are 10-6:30 M-F and 9:30-5 on Saturdaysand 11:00am-3pm on Sundays
9/4/2005 – Are these DME's hopped? Or would I need to get hops to put in it. Otherwise I would assume all is needed is this package and yeast?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No. All of our dry malt extracts (DME's) are unhopped. You will need some hops, and yeast (as well as water) to make beer.
6/4/2005 – what dry malt extract should I use with this?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: You could use any of your choice, but I would stay with the light colored.Here is a link to it:
3/28/2005 – i have a recipe for Whistlers Scottish spring ale and it calls for 10 lbs of liquid dark extract, can i substitute a dry malt (and how much) or which liquid extract do you recomend??
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, you can substitute dry malt extract for liquid (syrup) extract. 8 lbs of dry malt extract is equivalent to 10 lbs of liquid extract.
2/1/2005 – Where can I buy the hops to brew the beer? I live in Plainview, Texas....would love to brew my own. But, I need the ingredients to brew it. will buy your equipment, so....where can I buy the goodies to brew it?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Right here! We have a large selection of hops, yeasts, grains and everything you need in the way of ingredients. Here is a link:A good way to get started is to choose one of our ingredient (recipe) kits. They get you started the right way!
11/6/2004 – I cannot find malt, liquid, powder, (organic) or whatever making for making my homemade bagels,,,do you have it???
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Probably the most convenient form for you is dry malt extract. We have it. We also have liquid malt extract.links provided
10/5/2004 – I understand DME is 20% more concentrated than LME, but what are the percentages to an all grain batch.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: That percentage is more difficult to determine. Some brewers are very "efficient" when doing all-grain brewing, and get higher extraction that others. Generally speaking, they get 60-90% of the available malt sugars from the grain, but that varies widely. Different equipment, different brewers/techniques, different temperatures, different . . .
6/28/2004 – I am looking to buying Malt extract in powder form.Do you have this product?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, we do! Here is a link to the Dry Malt Extract category:
2/20/2004 – What are the advantages of Dry Malt Extract over Liquid Malt Extract? Dry seems that it would be easier to handle and store, but I have always used liquid...is there any reason not to use DME for my next homebrew?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Absolutely no reason not to use DME. It is really the same product, with all the water removed.Dry malt extract is easier to use and store alright. You can use less, as well, because all the water has been removed. It is about 20% more concentrated than the syrup type, so if you use say 7 lbs of syrup, only about 5 lbs of dry malt extract . . .
2/19/2004 – In the directions for a pale ale you refer to "DME" as a sub for priming sugar, however, a search for "DME" returns "American Style Dme", a bulk malt extract. Am I not reading something correctly or is there a another form o/style of DME? I want it for bottling, what should I be looking for?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Ooops. We should have defined that. DME stands for dry malt extract. It is available in light, amber, dark and even wheat. See below for a link to the Dry Malt Extract section of our website.For bottling purposes, light DME is probably best. Use about 1.25 cups per 5 gallons for priming (carbonation).
11/6/2003 – Where do I purchase the brewing sugar for the first fermentation for this product?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Corn sugar is in the Beer Additives categoy. or you can click below.If you prefer to use dry malt extract, that is also available and will often produce a better beer.
9/5/2003 – Do the dry malt extract products contain amylase enzyme? Could you use these malts to help convert raw grains?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No, the enzymes have been used/destroyed in the extraction process. They cannot be used to help convert raw grains. A small amount of amylase enzyme powder will help do the trick.
7/4/2003 – How much dme does it take to equal 1 lb. of bulk liquid extract?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: DME is about 20% more concentrated (by weight) than liquid malt extract. So:0.8 lb DME = 1 lb LME or,1 lb DME = 1.2 LME
