  • Introducing the first Briess single-malt extracts

    CHILTON, WI —Briess has announced that it is introducing two new CBW® malt extracts to its portfolio, each produced from a single malt:
    • CBW® Goldpils Vienna malt extract (6º L at 8º Plato)
    • CBW® Pale Ale malt extract (6º L at 8º Plato)

    These single-malt extracts make converting from extract to all grain, or vice versa, easier. And it gives the creative brewer total liberty and control. Two popular CBWº malt extracts — CBWº Pilsen Light and CBW® Golden Light — are close behind this pair. But with 99% Briess Pilsen Malt and Briess Brewers Malt, respectively, and 1% Briess Carapils® Malt, these malt extracts can’t qualify for the “single malt” category.

    Briess Goldpils® Vienna characteristics
    This traditional German-style malt is characterized by malty flavor with hints of biscuit. When formulating with either the extract or whole kernel malt, brewers should keep in mind that Goldpils® Vienna Malt is less sweet than Pale Ale Malt, and contributes less color than Munich Malt.

    Briess Pale Ale characteristics
    Briess Pale Ale Malt has a unique flavor profile that sets it apart from other versions of this malt offered to American craft brewers. Briess maltsters designed it to be a fully modified, high extract, low protein malt, not just a darker Brewers Malt. This required developing a proprietary malting recipe that involves careful monitoring of the kiln drying cycle and specialized temperature rests. The result is a base malt with rich malt flavors and hints of biscuit and nuts.

    Introducing the first Briess single-malt extracts, page two
    CBW® stands for Concentrated Brewers Wort. These brewer’s grade malt extracts are brewed on a 500-
    bbl state-of-the-art brewhouse, the second largest in Wisconsin. They are unhopped and nondiastatic to
    offer brewers creative control. Briess CBW® malt extracts are gently vacuum evaporated to maintain
    their rich, full flavor and lessen color development, and produced using a multiple step infusion brewing
    process for high fermentability.

    These new styles bring to 11 the number of CBW® malt extracts offered by Briess:
    - CBW® Pilsen Light (2º L)
    - CBW® Bavarian Wheat (3º L)
    - CBW® Golden Light (4º L)
