Malt extract is sold in both liquid (syrup) and powdered forms.
The syrups are approximately 20 percent water, so 2kg of Dry Malt Extract (DME) is roughly equal to 2.5 kg of Liquid Malt Extract (LME).
Our 500 gms DME is the Muntons Foil Pack Spray Malt.
The 1 Kg DME comes from a variety of quality assured suppliers.
DME is produced by heating the liquid extract and spraying it from an atomizer in a heated chamber. Strong air currents keep the droplets suspended until they dry and settle to the floor.
Edme DMS - 1.5kg Tin£13.00
The original Diastatic Malt Syrup (DMS), but now made exclusively by Muntons.
DMS is manufactured by mashing quality malted barley and then sparging to produce a sugary wort just as in a brewery. The wort is now concentrated by evaporating off the water at a controlled low temperature.
This produces a dense liquid diastatic malt extract with the original malt's α-amylase and β-amylase properties largely intact.
These diastatic properties can be used either to convert cereal adjuncts in malt extract beers or, in real emergencies, to rescue a set mash.
