Default The making of malt extract

So when the big shots make our malt extract, what type of grains are they using?
I'm interested if anyone knows exactly what they use for the different types.

depends on the type of extract. they use the same grains we use in our AG recipes.

Sorry I meant to say that I'm wondering about the specifics of it. What goes into their Amber, Gold, Dark, etc? It would give me an idea of what grains I am actually tasting.

that would depend on the manufacturer. I'm sure they all use more or less the same grains but they could use different quantities or add in their own blend on top of the basic recipe. i suggest going to the manufacturers website and see if they list the types of grains they use.

right there in the description of the extract "Ingredients: Base Malt, Carapils® Malt."

Thanks, I guess I should have looked at that to start with! Northern Brewer has ingredients for their own line too.

WTF? I checked that and just double checked it and no mention of anything other than Malted Barely , Water

It comes up as a .doc file and I have even done a word search and don't find "Carapils" in it. I get no further than "cara" before it turns red because of no match..... very strange indeed. Interesting since the extract version of Centennial Blonde calls for Carapils.....
