DME or LME for the CVBG Pale Ale

Postby Ben Siegel » Sat Mar 26, 2011 5:39 pm

Hey extract brewers! Whats your process?
Do you use primarily extract for your base malt and steep specialty grains?
Base Extract plus specialty extract like Wheat malt extract or Munich Extract?
When you have a choice, do you prefer Liquid extract or Dried extract?

I primarily use DME for my base malt, supplement that with a mini mash of a couple pounds of base and specialty grains....

I am curious because I am trying to work on the extract conversion of Marks CVBG PAle Ale so any input is welcome!

Thanks! :!:

On the floor now baby
You won't bother me no more
And if you're drinkin' well, you know
That you're my friend and I say
I think I'll have myself a beer

When I use extract I tend to lean twards DME . Its easyer to weigh and it stores longer without degrading as fast. I would think blending extracts would work well pending measurments are close and the blends match recipe your shooting for.

I lean towards DME as well, but I can see argument for LME also...

Im curious to see how the club pale recipe turns out for exrtact because Ive never used any of the specialty LME, just light or Ultra light if Im buying from Morebeer
