Briess 2-row brewer's malt is our most popular base malt, and for good reason. It is an economical, fully-modified base malt that can be utilized in almost any beer style with wonderful results. It provides a slightly higher yield and has slightly less protein than 6-row brewer's malt. It provides a light golden straw color in beers with which it is brewed.

The flavor has often been described as clean, with some also attributing a sweet and mildly malty flavor to it. These flavor characteristics lend themselves well to a range of different beer styles, anything from blonde and pale ales to Russian imperial stouts, and everything in between. Highly-modified, it is perfect for single infusion mashes employed by many home brewers. If you've never used Briess 2-row, try some today and see what you've been missing out on!

I almost always use this 2 row for my base malt. The price, yield, and neutral flavor make this terrific.

I've used this for a few brews now and its great. Great Fermentations switched from Rahr to Briess and I was a bit concerned at first, but the Briess brand has not disappointed. Efficiency has been the same. I was at a Friday Night Club event at GF a few months ago where they served beer made with Briess and Rahr, and the overwhelming vote was that the Briess tasted better. Efficiency was supposedly better as well.
