Whether malt extract makes up a little or a lot of your beer recipe, you want it to be fresh, full flavored and a high quality performer. That’s why we recommend brewing with CBW® pure malt extracts—brewer’s grade malt extracts that are:

  • Fresh – Produced in America’s Heartland so they escape the rigors of transoceanic transportation.
  • Rich, Full Flavored – Made from blends of high quality, rich, full flavored Briess malts.
  • Top Performers – Produced using a multiple step infusion brewing process for high fermentability and FAN – critical for brewing.

Fresh…and versatile

We make CBW® pure malt extracts in a variety of flavors so home and commercial brewers alike can create any style they like, or use CBW® for yeast propagation or to adjust gravity, color or flavor.

  • Extract Brewing – Use one or combine several CBW® styles to develop traditional to experimental beers.
  • Extract and Specialty Grain Brewing – Unleash your brewing creativity by cracking and steeping specialty grains into extract brews.
  • All Grain Brewing – Increase capacity, save time or adjust the gravity, color or flavor of beer.

Fresh…and the best
