Malt is a grain, usually barley but sometimes wheat or rye, that is allowed to partially germinate to convert its starches into sugars. It is these sugars that the yeast feeds on to produce alcohol. Malt also imparts a significant portion of flavor to the beer.

Malt extract is malt that has been mixed with water, cooked, and then boiled into a syrup or even into a dried form.
