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.

Would this kit work as the base for a spiced holiday ale?
Andy Myers on Aug 25, 2020
BEST ANSWER: This ale is good on it's own. If you want to make a Holiday ale I suggest one of the Holiday Ale kits. They are tested and can prevent you from making a beer you do not want to serve. But if you want to make your own recipe and you have the time you can make several one gallon batches and see which on tastes the best to you.
i suggest you start with an American Ale and cut back on the hops, maybe different amounts of hops in each batch to get the right balance with your other flavors. Cheers

Full Flavor, Low ABV
I'm still not sure if this is my most favorite beer, but it's one I've vowed to always have in rotation. It's difficult to believe you can get so much flavor with so low ABV!

This one is also a fan favorite with those I share with. It has such a beautiful malty flavor. I often play with the hop profile to create slight twists depending on the season.

As a note, this beer really loves to age for at least 4 weeks. I stopped drinking it any earlier than that.

Overall; I highly recommend this beer!

Good Basic Kit
This is a good basic kit to use for experimentation. I added extra fermentables and extra hops to produce a decent brew. My first batch had a bit of a sweet taste, which I did not care for. This may have been from the maltodextrin, so I left out the maltodextrin from the second batch. The second batch was very good.

Low ABV beer
Great beer if your looking for something low in alcoholic content. Price is great as well. Finished right around 3% ABV

Best value kit
60 shilling creates a good English Bitter style bitter beer although it comes from a Scottish recipe. The name comes from the taxation rates for barrels of beer created in Scotland. It was taxed according to the ABV. 60 shilling and 70 shilling were the most common beers available at that time with 90 shilling being sold in 8 oz bottles and known as "Wee Heavy".

Got better with age
I really didn't like it at first. In fact, I had to chuckle about the great reviews that were posted. I ate my words as the amazing, malty flavor developed within 6-8 weeks. Now it is hard not to have one with dinner... great flavor and low A.B.V. Great taste for the price!

Tried this one for the price, but am enjoying the drinkability.... Has almost a light sweetness. Will brew this one again.

Great beer. Smokin price!
This is a household favorite. I like to add corn sugar to raise the ABV. Extremly easy to brew

A nice surprise
I didn't know what to expect with this kit, buying it on a whim to see what kind of ale $19.99 might bring. The only tweak to the kit was to add a little honey to the priming sugar when bottling, to dry out the beer a little. Well, I was very pleasantly surprised at the outcome. I spread this beer around to friends and the feedback was ALL positive. Will buy again.
