Our American Light is mashed from the same Klages and Herrington two-row pale malt we sell to grain brewers. American Light is ideal when used as a pure malt base for a light flavored beer, or as a neutral base to build on when formulating darker beers.

Approximate SRM color value of 6 pounds of extract dissolved into 5 gallons of water before boiling: 5

american light malt extract
I have been using this malt for years and it has never disappointed me.  It's a great malt and makes really good ale.

great base malt
Basically a 2-row base malt. No adjuncts which is what I wanted. Excellent fermentability. I mean, really nice krausen. The color was light and reminded me of Alexanders pale ale extract which costs a lot more per pound for some reason. The Pilsner malt extract was nice too, but the adjunct of vienna malt added was leaving what I considered a little too much sweetness in the finished beer. I actually added no adjuncts to either of these to make a single malt single hop beer. You can't go wrong with williams malts. A little more expensive in some regard but the quality does seem much better than northern brewer/midwest supplies extracts. Theirs always have way too much adjuncts and the resulting beer is disappointingly too sweet and "unfermented tasting" I don't get that disappointment from williams malts. The bags do suck. I hate the bags they come in and wish they used the plastic bottles like everyone else. It takes a lot of labor to squeegee all that goo out of the bags.

My New Favorite!
This extract is fresh and provides a great landscape for hops and steeping grains.

Makes a first Rate Serrano Chili Beer
Just used this to make a Serrano Chili beer.  Put half pound of cut up chilis in the last 5 minutes of the boil and the beer rocks.  Greats with any mexican meal.

Great for specialty brews
I have been using this one for brews using ingredients that I want to be the main taste in brews.  Use it for my berry ales, pumpkin ales, and christmas brews.  Sometimes will use it if my OG is a bit lower than expected to help bring it on up.
