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.

Hop Blonde ale
This was probably the best blond, summer ale I have brewed. The combination of hops gives this beer a very nice twist from the usual summer ales I have brewed. This one may end up being brewed year round.

I’ve never actually brewed this kit but have ordered it many times as a base beer to easily modify. I have had great results combining different hops with this kit.

Awesome Beer!
This was a great beer, I'm definitely going to brew this again. It's a smooth blonde ale with a hoppy punch!

A nice clean ale for summer...
Altered the recipe slightly, and didn't dry hop it. Came out great. Will definitely brew this again.

great beer
I got this hopping for something that was similar to a chainbreaker. As far as that it failed but it came out more like a twisted tea. All in all it is a very good beer and would be the perfect summer beer
