Great base for a pale ale. Add it 30mins. into a 60 min. boil and you end up with a golden color.

pretty happy
I bought a six pack of this extract to try it out. 6 great batches of beer. I will probably use this as my "go to" mix now.

nothing but love
I bought the 33 pound canister and used it in a good 5 brews. Everyone of them came out with great body and mouthfeel, not to mention the great flavor. I will definitely be buying this again

Solid LME
I have used this may times... it fits the bill for certain brews... nice malt balance and crystal love. It is a great "quick brew extract" when I cannot do an all grain batch. Going extract cuts about 1.5 hours off my brew day. :-) stay thirsty my friends...

Great product at a good price.
I use it for my pale ales and pilsners too. Good flavor. Light color if not added at beginning of boil. :)

I have an old recipe that used Briess Golden liquid malt extract for a dry Irish style stout. Would this be a suitable substitute (Maillard Malts Gold)?
Carl L on Oct 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Maillard Malts Gold is a pale malt. I don't believe the Gold in the name is intended to indicate a color darker than pale. Consider Amber LME?
Is the Millard malts gold extract hopped or unhopped?
R U on Dec 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Unhopped if the malt is hopped it must specify since it doesn't it means it's just gold malt.
Would this be good for a good smooth flavor whiskey?
Matthew V on Feb 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: NO. Use Makers Mark
Would this be good for a smooth flavor whiskey?
A shopper on Feb 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: For the grain portion of the corn and grain ratios in whiskey, I would assume so. I have never made whiskey before. I know it makes a great base for many different recipes for beer and doesn't have a bitter characteristic.
Would consider provided information on all your extracts to the BeerSmith for the BeerSmith Software? I am a newbie and using that software to manage my recipes. Here are the variables it asks me to enter an extract... Can you provide. Tnx!!!

Potential SG
Moisture %
Protein %
J I on Jul 30, 2016

Thank you for brewing with us. We do not provide those parameters for extract brewing since those most of those parameters are relevant for the mash which has already been done. We do have protein%, moisture%, and SRM ratings for most (if not all) of the grains we offer. The potential SG will deteremined by how much grains or extract you add to your brew.

For the liquid malt extracts we do have SRM rating in degrees Lovibond listed in the product descriptions, as well as their PPG ratings (i.e. Approximately 4L, 1.036 ppg.)

For all of our kits we do provide the intended SG, which be notated as starting gravity (SG), or original gravity (OG). This information can be found on the recipe/instruction sheet and on our website.

I hope this helps you get your software dialed in a bit closer.

Does this malt make 5 gallons?
D D on Jun 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Depends on the recipe, and how much you buy, the 3 pounds not enough on its own for 5 gallons, but the size that is a little over 6 pounds should be enough with hops to make a good light pale ale or use more malt and hops for a IPA or double IPA that's mostly the style I make. You might want amber or Maris otter malt for a lager or amber ale.
How much do you need for a 1 gallon batch?
C A on Jun 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: That would depend on the type of beer and/or the desired alcohol content. According to my calculator:

Liquid Malt Extract Weight to Alcohol%
(in 1 gallon of water)

1.00 lbs - 3.6%
1.25 lbs - 4.6%
1.50 lbs - 5.5%
1.75 lbs - 6.4%
2.00 lbs - 7.3%

Keep in mind this does not include any other additions of grains.
yes was wondering about how much I would need to brew a 5 gallon batch I currently do all grain and would like to try this alone as well as part grain as well
mike c on Mar 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Really it comes down to what type of beer you are making. Most recipes I have come across call for at least 6 Ibs. of LME. I made a really good Mango Honey Wheat beer using 3.15 Ibs. of the Gold with 3.15 Ibs. of the Wheat. It came out to be around 5% and has a great malty taste at start.
What is the shelf life of your LME
Z A on Oct 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I order it as required, so I try to keep it on the shelf less than 3 weeks, but I would be unconcerned if I kept it in cool, dark conditions and doubled that time before putting it to pasteur.
Does the gold malt syrup have wheat as an ingredient?
Brian R on May 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The extract does not contain wheat as an ingredient. However, wheat products are processed at the same plant.
Are your extracts all natural or is there artificial coloring etc.?
A shopper on Jan 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: There are not colorings or additives here. 100% barley malt mashed and then the sugars are concentrated into syrup. Cheers.
About how many gallons of beer does a 6 lb jug of malt yield?
