Homebrew by product - Spent Grain
When I am enjoying a brew at a brewery, I look for the Spent Grain. Some breweries use a malt extract in their brews to boast the ABV level. Typically an all grain porter will have and ABV between 3.5% to 5.5%. Extract brewing, on brew day, is quicker than all grain brewing. Although a malt extract brew cost more than an all grain brew. The cost is for simplicity and a more reliable result. Think of this difference in buying a frozen pie crust and making a pie crust from scratch.
