mangrove jack malt enhancer?

Post by Cozzyb » Thu May 10, 2018 11:27 pm

I'm curious if anyone knows if this is different to lme? It says online it's 100% liquid malt extract but I can't work out why 1.2kg is £4.99 yet they also sell LME for 1.5kg £9.99 most places online. Is there any reason you couldn't use this for extract brewing?

Im generally very suspicious of any fermentable with the 'enhancer' label as its generally just an excuse to overcharge disgustingly for the cheapest monosaccharide available.

I suspect its a pricing cock up, google 1st led me to an antipodean site where the price difference was $1

and if the brew-uk site is maintained correctly???? and has correct information, the concentration of both products is identical ?? but thats just web sales blurb?

Bargain time???

Yeah that's what I thought however they clearly say that this is 100% lme with no dextrose or malto dextrine and everyone seems to be selling it for £4.99 even malt miller.

It’s a weird one - maybe an email to the manufacturer would clear up the differences.

I've wondered about this too, and like other are suspicious - why would it be cheaper than LME?

It is 100% malt extract, just different size packs.

The price came down when the Craft Series pouches came out as they wanted to promote best use (i.e. use this instead of brewing sugar to get best results from the kit).
