Grains & Extracts

Name Amount Notes
2- row 18 lb It has a light, clean, smooth flavor. One of our most popular base malts, it is perfect for building nearly any style ale.
Crystal 10L 2 lb lightest colored Crystal available. The flavor has a candy-like sweetness with mild caramel character. This malt will add golden hues to a beer, creating a beautiful blonde or pilsner. Will also improve the head of a beer
Munich 1/2lb This is a light Munich malt that has a hefty toasted bread character.
Carafoam 2 lb Contributes the same to your beer as CaraPils does - body, etc - but with a slightly sweet flavor. A few breweries are switching to this malt in place of CaraPils. Definitely lends a more interesting flavor.
