Lot Codes

Each lot of malt produced by Briess receives a unique six-digit lot code which represents the date of production. To determine the date, start from the left and read to the right of the code. The first two numbers correspond to the year that the product was manufactured. The second two numbers designate the month of production. And the last two numbers indicate the day of the month of production. Some lot codes may include a letter or additional numbers after the six-digit code. Ignore them as they are for internal use only. Here's an example:


130115


13 = 2013    |    01=January     |     15=15th day of the month
This product was produced on January 15, 2013.


First Set of Numbers Second Set of Numbers Third Set of Number
08 = 2008 01 = January 01=1st day of month
09 = 2009 02 = February 02-2nd day of month
10 = 2010 03 = March And so on...
11 = 2011 04 = April  
12 = 2012 05 = May  
13 = 2013 06 = June  
14 = 2014 07 = July  
And so on.... 08 = August  
  09 = September
