Superbrau Light Malt Syrup??
« on: July 14, 2013, 03:43:35 PM »
I am trying to input my material list into Beer Smith Mobile and came across this Superbrau Extract.  Of course it isn't in the current inventory and I do not like substituting material because is will not be accurate in the final results.  I've tried to Google the info so that I can add it to the inventory but have come up with nothing.

Does anyone have any information I could use to "add" a new grain to my Beer Smith  :)
Thanks  ;D

How old is the extract? I thought Superbrau had been long gone for awhile now...

If its liquid extract, pitch it. Freshness counts for LME.

If its dried, it could still be ok. Taste it to be sure.

Just use the generic DME in the inventory - it will be fairly close.

Funny you should ask how old it is...my wife, for my birthday last April, took a recipe from a magazine and took it to the local Homebrew USA and had them put a kit together.  I'm thinking I need to see if a Bill of Material was put together, if not, take the article back and discuss it with them.  I bet they substituted with something else.  It was a LME I used...

Thanks for the feedback.  Was wondering why so many viewed but none replied.

Yea, she had one with the receipt.  Listed as Golden/Pale/Light under LME column.

Thanks again...

Wow, Superbrau !  There's a blast from the past.  Didn't know it was still around either.
