Expanded Guide to Brewing Malts, Grains, and Sugars


Brewer's Lair has just tripled its online database of malts, grains, and sugars to nearly 100 entries. Learn about the huge array of choices that you have to provide the desired color, strength, and flavor to your next homemade beer. Included is guidance for the typical amounts you need for a specific fermentable, and guidance on which to use to make specific beer styles. This newly expanded section should help you to better understand your fermentable choices when designing your next beer. As with our other ingredient guides, we plan to continue to grow and improve this section over time. Check back with us later if you don't find what you need now.
