Holiday Gift Ideas for your Homebrewer


Are you looking for gift ideas and stocking stuffers for your homebrewer? Here are some ideas perfect for any size gift and all new in 2016.

 CBW® Goldpils® Vienna and CBW® Pale Ale Liquid Malt Extract (LME)


briess_33lbcanister_paleale_300dpiThis year we also launched two single malt extracts, CBW® Goldpils® Vienna and CBW® Pale Ale. CBW® Pale Ale LME  is 100% pure malted barley extract produced from 100% Briess Pale Ale Malt, a fully modified high extract, low-protein malt that is not just a darker Brewers Malt. The proprietary malting process for Briess Pale Ale Malt involves careful monitoring of the kiln drying process and specialized temperature rests that result in the development of its unique flavor. Briess Pale Ale Malt is produced in the U.S.A. from AMBA/BMBRI recommended 2-Row malting varieties. This new CBW® single malt extract is a perfect gift idea for your homebrewer.

briess_33lbcanister_goldpilsvienna_300dpiCBW® Goldpils® Vienna Malt is another superb example of a classic malt. It is less sweet than Pale Ale Malt, it is a rich base malt that offers complexity and depth with a toasted note at the finish for your classic Vienna, Oktoberfest and Marzen beers. It finishes exceptionally clean and contributes light golden hues. If you are having a hard time choosing which CBW® to include in your stocking, just get both!

Caramel Rye Malt

Try Briess’ Caramel Rye Malt, also new this year. It’s easy to think of Caramel Rye Malt as being an aggressively flavored specialty malt that is used at very small percentages, given the spicy characteristic of rye. But new Briess Caramel Rye Malt debunks that notion. Rather, a proprietary process in the drum roaster was developed in order to create a roasted rye malt characterized by touches of caramel and bread crust flavors that complement the spicy characteristic of the rye grain. This standout specialty rye malt is uniquely smooth and subtle, yet surprisingly complex, with touches of spicy rye flavor shining through the layers of caramel and bread crust flavors after fermentation. It leans toward burnt orange and brown color contributions. This malt is perfect for a New Year’s Brew.
