Many beginning home brewers enter into the hobby by making beers with malt extract. Malt extract is created through a process of mashing grain to make wort and then evaporating the water. The resulting extract can be added back to water later in order to create a new wort.

There are two main varieties of malt extract dry malt extract (DME) and liquid malt extract (LME).
