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.
5/26/2011 – I'm looking for barley malt syrup for making bagels.Is there a difference between barley malt syrup for baking and for making beer?Thanks for your help
Response From Homebrew Heaven: None at all, providing it is UNhopped malt extract. We sell a fair amount of it for bagel making. It is available in both syrup form (in bulk) and in powder form, called dry malt extract.
5/17/2010 – what is your phone number?

2/20/2010 – coopers calls for one kilogram of corn sugar or one litre of Hi-maltose syrup and i want to use ur dme. what i understand is that a kilo is about 2.2 lbs if im wrong correct me, so i should be able to get your 5lbs bag and make 2 batches am i correct? also how would i use your bulk lme towards this?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: You are correct. A 5 lb bag of dry malt extract will do nicely for two 5-gallon batches (along with the Cooper's kits).Liquid malt extract can be used in the same way. A liter of malt extract weighs about 3.5 lbs.You will find that measuring dry malt extract is consideraby easier, however.
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. . . .
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)!
8/26/2008 – I am working on a recipe that is an all grain recipe and I am trying to convert the quantities of malt to DME, as I don't want to do an all grain batch (just not there yet). In this instance it calls for 15lbs pale malt, and 7.5 lbs wheat malt. How do I convert to DME, and just out of curiosity which DME would you recommend for these malts. . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: For this recipe, try using 7 lbs of light DME as well as 3.5 lbs of WHEAT DME. It will be close.
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 . . .
2/6/2008 – Does the DME need to be added at the boil like with LME?To increase alcohol content of the commercial homebrew kits can DME be added after the boil prior to adding the yeast at the primary fermentation stage?How & When is the best time to increase the alcohol content?Thanks ... Great site and I am thoroughly enjoying homebrewing ... . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: You use dry malt extract (DME) in the same way as liquid malt extract (LME). It really is the same product, but with all of the water removed. LME still has about 20% water in it, which makes it a thick syrup. For this reason you have to use about 20% MORE LME than DME for similar results.It is best to add either DME or LME to the boil. . . .
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!
11/25/2007 – I have a recipe that calls for malt, sugar, water, and yeast, but doesn't specify corn or table sugar, is there a better choice, what would you suggest?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: My personal choices would be as follows (links provided below):1) Dry malt extract. This will give you a richer, more flavorful beer. 2) Corn sugar. This lightens the color but adds little or no flavor. I would NOT recommend using common cane table sugar in beer. It leaves a "cider" like taste that many find objectionable.
9/27/2007 – I have a couple of questions about DME (dry malt extract).1. When priming with DME, do you add it to warm water? Like with corn sugar?2. Approximately how many cups are in 5 lbs of DME? Or better yet, with 5lbs worth, how many 5 gallon batches can be made or primed?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: 1. Yes, do it the same way.2. You should be able to prime about 12 five gallon batches with 5 lbs of DME. This assumes using about 7 oz per batch. You may use more or less, depending on how much "fizz" you like in your beer.
5/19/2007 – I have two questions:1) I currently add 2 lbs of sugar to my mix. How much DME would I use to replace the 2 lbs of sugar?2) I use 1/2 tsp of sugar to prime the bottles. How much DME would I use to prime a 16 oz. bottle?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: You don't say what kind of sugar. Even different sugars have different ratios. For instance, you would use more corn sugar than table sugar to get the same sweetness/alcohol/carbonation level. Therefore I can only give an estimate of the ratio of sugar to DME.1) Approximately 2.5 lbs DME2) I believe that priming bottles individually . . .
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.
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
7/7/2006 – If my recipe calls for 7lb of crushed pale malt, what quantity of DME would I require for subtitution to achieve a similar brew?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: It's good that you said "similar" because there is no exact conversion. Using about 3.75 lbs of DME would be close.
5/8/2006 – I will soon be moving deep into the south pacific - that means hot and humid, and a long way to ship. I was thinking about stocking up on supplies here before the move. What kind of shelf life can you put on the DME, hops (pellet vs leaf?), and dry yeast?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: With dry malt extract, as long as it is kept sealed, and dry, it will last indefinately...or at least a year. Hops are best refrigerated, but they are small, and it's easy to do. Figure a year on them also. Pellets will last a little longer. Dry yeast will last at least a year. If refrigerated, it will last 2-3 years.Can I come with you? . . .
1/24/2006 – Does HH Dry Malt Extract mean hopped dry extract? I searched your site for hopped dry extract but only found HH dry malt extract. I am most reluctamt to order items which are not clearly labelled. If I found hopped dry malt extract on your site it should be called hopped and have some indication of hops bitterness inherent.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No. HH stands for Homebrew Heaven. All of our dry malt extracts are unhopped. Only (some) canned syrup extracts are hopped.
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.
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).
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
