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!

Great American Base Malt
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.

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

Great Service!
Great Fermentations goes above and beyond to ensure their customers have a great experience. GF is my goto HBS for all my home brewing needs.

Some Needed Complexity
I used this as a large part of a grain bill, along with pilsner malt. It added needed depth and complexity to the recipe, which I appreciate.
