What Is Spraymalt Or DME?
Spraymalt, also known as Dried Malt Extract (DME) is a liquid malt extract (the treacle like liquid in your beer tin/pouch in your kit) that has been all the way dried out into a powder form. Using Spraymalt/DME can improve the quality of any beer kit when used in place of some, if not all, of the brewing sugar suggested. You are now not just adding sugar, you are adding more flavour and ‘substance’ to what you are making.
It will brew beers which are less ‘dry’ with more richness, body and improved head formation and retention.
As a starting point you could substitute half of the advised brewing sugar for Spraymalt/DME instead. We always suggest this option to see what impact it is having and give you a base to judge the difference by. It is however down to you the consumer!
Alternatively, you could substitute Spraymalt/DME for all the sugar recommended in the beer kit instructions.
This will brew beer of the highest quality, transforming a standard beer kit into a premium beer kit with a particularly high percentage of malt.
There are varying types of Spraymalt/DME. We suggest you pick the one most suited to the style of beer you are making. For a light beer as an example, then choose a light or extra light Spraymalt/DME. If it’s a stout or a porter for example, use the dark option.
Most Spraymalt/DME comes in 500g or 1kg options for ease of use.
