This is great!

I've just found this thread through a search!

What luck...I was in the local Piggly Wiggly (a supermarket chain here in the SE) this afternoon. I had a shopping list of items for the holidays coming up, and guess what I discovered right there under the Karo's Dark Brown Corn Syrup?

Yep! A whole shelf of 2.2 LB/1 Kilogram cans of Premier Malt Extract, Natural Hop Flavored, Light @ $5.69 + tax.

The cashier said that they sell tons of the stuff! (This is a DRY county, BTW!!!)

I've read the Mr. Beer thread on this forum, but this seems even easier.

I'm going to try the recipe as posted by Revvy.

If any one has any advice, experiences, to add since the last post here, I'd be grateful to know about it!

The Light is the only variety that they stock here, has anyone tried the Amber, or any of the others?

I have a feeling you are going to be the Premeir Malt Extract Pioneer on this forum...you're going to have to keep US posted...

I'm thinking that there is probably not much of a facility to tour up there in Michigan.

The label on the can says 'Made in the UK for...', so the Warren location is probably a warehouse.

There is a little slip of paper with directions and a recipe (with variations) under the can's plastic cover, along with a packet of dry brewers yeast.

The variations to the recipe amount to reductions in the amount of water used, which they indicate change the taste AND the ABV.

So, making less than a five gallon batch gives one a stronger tasting brew, with more kick, too.

The label also says to, "Write for recipe.", which I've decided to do.

This is so simple, and as Dave R posted above, after making more than 200 gallons with all kinds of twists, "...all are better than BMC."

If this is accurate, Premier Malt Extract is the Apfelwein of beer brewing!

Man, I got all excited reading this and headed to the nearest PW by my home and they didn't have any!

There's another one on the other side of town, so I still might find this stuff. I'm really wanting to make a batch of this brew for nostalgia's sake.

It can be found in most Mom/Pop type grocery stores right by the syrups ( of which I've used different types in my beers ).

I've never seen it in the WalMart stores or any of the major brand name grocery stores.

It takes me less than an hour to make a batch using Premier.

Note: I've only seen the "Light" Malt Extract, Hop Flavored. Directions and a packet of yeast are under the lid. It must go pretty fast around here because the yeast has always been viable when I've used it.

Usually I dump my wort right on top of the previous yeast cake so I don't always use the new packets of yeast right away, but do eventually.

Pogo...where in Al. are you? We might be neighbors.

Hey ma2brew -

I'll bet that they can order it for you. I'm thinking that it's gotta be available on their supply list.

If I was a member of a decent sized brew club, I'd consider trying to get set up as a wholesaler myself, and buy in bulk for the members.

This stuff could really get inexpensive if a few people could come together long enough to create a nice opening order, huh?

Premier's website has a toll free number.

Hey Dave -

You seem to be the resident expert on using Premier Malt Extract.

I hope that I like this first batch, cause that will mean that there will be many more!

I see that you're in the Gadsden area.

I'm way out in the farms and fields here in rural Cullman county, probably 60 miles away, at least.

You are on the mark. To clear the beer, try adding a few camden tablets. I have a batch brewing now. I also test the alcohol content at start of fermantation. and again before bottling. Before adding yeast I put the yeast in 2 ounces of warm water for about 15 minutes, then add to the wort.

Wow, I used those when I first started brewing back in the early '90's. Made some decent beer as I recall.

BTW - I called Premier's home office regarding an opening order to get set up as a wholesaler...18 cases is the amount.

Also, both Warehouse Groceries in town stock this LME as well!

$5.19 + tax!
