Briess Traditional Dark is brewer's grade pure malt extract. What makes them brewer's grade? The most distinguishing characteristic is a high degree of fermentability and FAN. Briess malt extracts deliver both.
These characteristics can only be achieved in a brewhouse-style extraction process, as opposed to other styles of extraction processes. At Briess, they employ multiple step infusion brewing to develop high levels of fermentability and FAN. Then, they concentrate the wort to about 80% solids using gentle vacuum evaporation. The lower temperatures employed during this evaporation process lessen the color development in the finished extract.
Unhopped and nondiastatic, CBW® pure malt extracts are exceptionally full flavored and consistent. They're also fresh because they are produced and shipped from America's Heartland, not some foreign port.
