Briess Pilsen Light Liquid Malt Extract, a 32 lb package, is an excellent selection for home brewing enthusiasts who are passionate about crafting light, crisp, and invigorating pilsner beers. This high-quality extract is meticulously crafted from a unique blend of two-row barley and malted wheat, which contributes to its light hue and a clean, malty flavor that is sure to tantalize your taste buds.

One of the standout features of Briess Pilsen Light Liquid Malt Extract is its self-converting enzymes. This means you can skip the step of adding extra enzymes, making your brewing process more straightforward and efficient. While this extract is ideal for creating light, crisp, and refreshing pilsners, its versatility extends to a plethora of other beer styles, broadening your home brewing horizons.

The components of Briess Pilsen Light Liquid Malt Extract include:

- Pilsen Malt: This is the main ingredient that gives the extract its light color and distinctive malty flavor.
- Dextrine Malt: This component aids in enhancing the body, mouthfeel, and foam stability of your beer.
- Water: Used to create the liquid malt extract, ensuring a smooth and manageable consistency for your brewing process.

Briess Pilsen Light is the lightest liquid malt extract available, making it a versatile base malt for all extract beer styles. Additionally, it can be used to adjust the color and gravity of an all-grain beer, giving you more control over your brewing process and the final product's characteristics.

Aside from beer making, this extract can also be used in baking and cooking to add a unique depth of flavor to your dishes. So, whether you're a home brewer or a culinary enthusiast, Briess Pilsen Light Liquid Malt Extract is a valuable addition to your pantry.

Wort Chillers and Thermometers are long term investments. It is important to chill your wort quickly. The quicker you chill it the stronger the cold break will be. You also need a good thermometer because high powered boiling changes more rapid temperature fluctuations. 


Auto-siphons are a great luxury item to have in your brew equipment. Once you have one you will never go without one again. Don't forget to use a heavy duty sanitizer to clean it since you don't want to replace it as often as hoses. A good sanitizer for that job is Five Star San. 


 If you are using Briess Pilsen Light Liquid Malt Extract, you are getting ready to ferment some beer. Here's a link to our fermenter equipment.


 Many people reuse their hoses for far too long. Replacing your hoses often or even using as single use items is highly recommended with beer making. 


Pouring your wort into a carboy can be tricky. Use a big funnel made just for the job. They even have different mesh screens to remove particles.


All that healthy yeast is going to make a lot of gas and you'll be needing an airlock to let it out, and not let anything in. It is recommended to replace airlocks often. Because they never physically touch the beer, the sanitation risk is too often overlooked. Bacteria can spread without physical contact in a closed environment and plastic stubbornly harbors bacteria.

Making a yeast starter is a great way to avoid stuck fermentation and also get high yeast counts that allow the final cells to clean up after themselves, reducing off flavors and aromas. Higher populations means less yeast stress and less risk of off-flavors.  They help make better beer and can be used with Briess Pilsen Light Liquid Malt Extract. Use the right equipment to make the job easy. Flask, Foam Stopper, and Airlock.
