Briess CBW®...now available in 30lb mini-pails

Briess is excited to roll out a new CBW® liquid malt extract packaging option for the home and craft brewing communities—the 30-pound mini-pail.


A big sister to the 3.3-pound canister and little sister to the 5-gallon pail, the mini-pail offers features and benefits that homebrew retailers, homebrewers and commercial brewers alike will appreciate:


  • Click here to open a pdf with dispensing tips.
  • Sturdy handle for carrying and pouring
  • Reuseable
  • Food-grade
  • Dispense just the amount you want for creative brewing, small gravity adjustments, minor flavor or color adjustments, and yeast propagation.
  • The entire bucket is just the right amount to nail your gravity every time:
    • +1.001 gravity points on a 33bbl system
    • +1.003 gravity points on a 10bbl system
