View Full Version : Liquid malt extract sources

2nd April 2014, 12:36 PM
I'm starting to build the next batch and have decided to try a lighter malt extract for the base. I've been using Pilsner as it's the lightest available at Northern Brewers and they're reputable as well. The problem is that I want to go lighter than the Pilsner and am going to have to find a place that has quality extracts in the lighter variety.

I know I'll probably have to pay more but so be it, I'll be using 18lbs for this one.

Anybody got a source for light LME? I've done some searching but have found nothing conclusive. TIA.

muntons extra light malt? Northerns stock that. I don't know if it's lighter than a pilsner malt.

what about a light wheat malt? As you would use in a hefeweizen.

in dry malts, muntons do a light spray malt as well. I dont see that on NB's web site.

I don't know how they rate EBC.
