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.

If brewed correctly, it's one of the cleaner finishing beers that Morebeer offers. Excellent session beer.

Does this kit come with yeast? I don't see it on the ingredients list
Lewis Hunter on Feb 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: MoreBeer kits do not typically come with yeast. They usually suggest a yeast when you add the kit to your shopping cart. I used WLP001, California Ale Yeast which cost $7.

Citra Pale Ale
Good beer, but I liked it a whole lot more when it was a $.50 a glass beer special kit with yeast. Quite frankly it's just not a $43 kit. Personally, I just buy some Citra hops and make my own kit for half the price.

Delicious pale ale
This brew turned out very good. The Citra hops are yummy and it’s not too bitter. I cut up three oranges and added it to the primary for mentor because I don’t have a secondary fermentor. The orange flavor pairs excellent with the Citra hops. Final ABV is 6%.

Great Beer
I added an additional 2oz of galaxy hops during the dry-hop addition - beer tastes great. Definitely one of the favorites I've brewed so far.

Hands down the best pale ale ever
I don't have any special brewing skills, so I wasn't the reason this turned out so good. It wasn't too bitter. It wasn't too hoppy. It wasn't too sweet. All the flavors were well balanced. The dry hopping did stand out and made this the best pale ale ever. I used WLP051 and followed the directions included with the kit with no deviations.

What happened to the PRICE!
This is one of my favorite beers to make, but I don't think I'll be buying it again at this price.

Extract twang
I bought two extract kits when it was a deal of the day. The brew day was easy and the wort OG was 1.060. Used gigayeast NorCal yeast in 2L starter fermented in basement at 65degrees. Finished at 1.012, kegged and drink after two weeks. This beer has a nice light citra aroma with a big pale ale backbone thanks to the maltodextrin and carapils. Over all a decent pale ale. But the finish is not Pleasant at all. It has been a month since I have first tried it and the finish has become twangy and kinda sticks to your palate. I have had this same taste from other extracts from morebeer but just drank it. I have 10 gallons of this!!!! I don't want to dump it but it is getting worse as it sits in the keg. I would make the all grain if I was to do it again. But the price was right and now I'm left hoping it loses that twang after taste.

Outstanding, easy-drinking pale ale
This was my first recipe kit from MoreBeer, and it did not disappoint. I was looking for one of those "any time" beers, that would be crisp and smooth and taste like summer on the porch. I've shared this with a few friends who have all said they would pay top dollar to buy this at a store or bar, but I don't share it anymore because I keep it for myself. One tip: I called MoreBeer to ask a couple questions since it was my first brew with them, and they suggested a slightly different schedule for dry-hopping than what came with the instructions, and that may well have helped make this such a treat.

Good Beer but....
This kit turned out great. Everyone at the homebrew meeting loved it. Primary for 8 days, secondary for 7. The only thing I want to change next time is to double the dry hop addition.
