Liquid Malt Extract (LME) vs. Dried Malt Extract (DME)
MoreBeer! recipe kits are offered in both Liquid Malt Extract and Dry Malt Extract so that our customers can choose the format that best suits their needs and brewing style. LME is a viscous liquid, similar in consistency to maple syrup. In addition to being the more affordable option, many brewers find LME easier to handle than dry extract. DME is more condensed and comes in a powder format that is similar to baking flour. Although it’s a little more costly, DME is naturally lighter in color and stays fresher for longer. We highly recommend DME when brewing light colored beers.

No grains so I don’t need to buy any grains? Just skip that step?
Darren Rowland on Apr 24, 2020
BEST ANSWER: This kit does not contain any grain in addition to the malt extract. You can certainly add your own to make your own recipe. A lot of wheat beers, even when not using extract, will be nice and simple to create a light and easy drinking brew.

Simple and delicious extract kit.
This was my first ever home brew and it turned out great! One friend said that he has never liked wheat beer at all but he loved this one.

A straight forward beer to brew and a fun beer to play around with. Use a Hefeweizen yeast to get those nice esters and phenols. Use a clean American yeast (05, 001, 1056) if you want to play around with other additions.

a good beer
I brewed this beer at the end of September. I was a little worried about the yeast, it came to the house with the bag already puffed up. I just tossed it in the frige and waited for brew day. I did my starter 24 hours before brew day and hoped for the best. I did see that the abv % was a little low for us here in Texas. I had a some dry rice extract in the house, so I added 1 pound to the boil. after boil 7 days in primary fermenter, then 7 days in secondary fermenter. my OG was 1.061 my final was 1.01 = abv 6.6 % . I bottled it and let it rest for 1 month and tried a few of them. it was great !!!! no sweet taste to it, not to hoppy. I have friends that are wheat beer drinkers. they all loved it. they said a wheat beer with a good taste and a good buzz to. I am here to order another kit or 2. ha ha ha I only have 2 bottles left now.
