Ashburne® Mild Malt

Registration #2,230,137

Ashburne® Mild Malt and Bonlander® Munich Malt were concurrently developed in the late 1990s to satisfy American craft brewers who couldn't get enough specialty malts for brewing. Both are 2-Row, highly kilned malts and are excellent in flavorful, traditional beer styles. They bothalso contribute flavors unique to these styles of malt.


Ashburne® Mild Malt was developed specifically for a brewer who requested a malt with a specific flavor and color profile. Its name came from the name of the street on which the brewery was located.

Carapils® Malt & Cara-Pils® Malt

Registration #502,782 & #2,758,101

Both wordmarks refer to the same unique, dextrine-style malt produced exclusively by Briess Malt & Ingredients Co. in the United States. The main function of Carapils® Malt is increase foam production, improve head retention, and enhance mouthfeel. And while other dextrine-style malts are available, none perform as well as Carapils® Malt produced by Briess. Carapils® Malt owes its superior performance to a proprietary process not duplicated anywhere within the malting industry.

CBW® Brewers Grade Malt Extracts

Registration #1,836,970

Short for "Concentrated Brewers Wort", this registered trademark identifies the Briess line of unhopped brewer's grade, pure malt extracts.


CBW® malt extracts are produced from Briess Malts in a 500-barrel, state-of-the-art brewhouse (the third largest in Wisconsin), then gently vacuum evaporated to maintain their rich, full flavor and lessen color development. We use a multiple step infusion brewing process for high fermentability and FAN, which is critical for brewing. That's how these extracts earn their title as true brewer's grade malt extracts.


Roger Briess developed and introduced CBW®s in the early days of the American Craft Beer movement when extract breweries were opening at a rapid rate, because their start-up time was greatly shorter than opening all-grain breweries. Today many excellent, award-winning extract beers are produced in the United States. In addition, more all-grain brewers are relying upon malt extracts to adjust color, boost gravity, brew high-gravity beers and propagate yeast.

Maltoferm® Food Grade Malt Extracts

Registration #1,149,989

The Maltoferm® product line was first introduced when ragtime music ruled. Second generation Rudolf Briess started making malt extracts for bakers at the family's Czechoslovakian malting operation in the late 1890s. Ninety years later, Roger Briess re-introduced the line in the United States, again mainly for the baking industry.


Maltoferm® malt extracts are pure malt extracts. The line includes light- to dark-colored malt extracts. The darkest, Maltoferm® A-6000 (LME) and A-6001 (DME), are produced from black malt and are used extensively by brewers for minor color adjustment. Very small quantities contribute lots of color.
