Home Brewing 101: The Differences of Extract and All-Grain Beer Brew


Home brewers have two options when it comes to making beer at home: extract brewing and all-grain brewing. To begin with, it is important to understand the home brewing process itself.

Beer is a result of fermenting malt sugar. The traditional process of making beer is to mash grains, take the remaining sugars as base, introduce the yeast, and then wait for it to ferment. Traditionally, all-grain is the only way to brew beer; however, today’s technology has made it possible to brew even with extracts only. In simple terms, an extract is a ready-made malt that can be immediately used as a base. Extract brewing allows the brewers to skip over the malting and mashing process and go right ahead to the fermenting process.
