What stage do you put the dried rice extract?
Austin K Walker on Jan 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Preboil gravity about 1027. Start the boil, wort hot enough to dissolve extract. I add at the beginning. Produces nice light colored flavorful beer. I mostly use WL 80 cream ale but have used WY 2007 Pilsen.

Will brew again.
This could be a "go to" in hot weather. Cleared nicely when crash chilled.

Good all around summer beer
Very mild and light. Tastes about the same as most of the store bought light beers. Not very malty or hoppy. Everyone that has tried it has wanted more. I already have a second kit to brew for this summer.
