I’m just hoping the price stays the same as I am a budget brewer!
Works well on pale and IPA
LHBS charges $13 for a 3 lb bag of DME making it $4.33/lb. You can do better online, but then there's shipping making it nearly a wash. This ships to northeast NY for $26 putting the price delivered at $156 making it $3.12/lb. I threw in 3 lbs of hops and a bunch of dry yeast and that only bumped the shipping up by a buck. One could argue that I effectively paid $3/lb. A substantial savings! About 30% off! Yeah 50 lbs is a lot of DME, but it's not that much if you brew regularly—maybe 8 batches of moderate gravity home-brew. Keep it in the bag until you need it and store it in bags inside 5 gal pails that close tightly. Unlike LME, DME has a long shelf life. Other than that Briess makes quality DME.
