Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / DME vs. LME

DME lasts longer than LME. LME can darken over time. Is there any pro to using LME over DME? Just a question that came to my mind while messing around in beersmith

Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / Mango Saison

Just one question, what is aromatic malt? Is that the name of the malt or are there malts that are designated as aromatic malt?

Lol ive been there too, it's just the name

Ive done other recipes from his book and the colors are always off. I think its because of the backdrops in the pictures and the variation of ingredients. My Midas touch tastes just like a bottle one but was alot lighter than the pic in the book but darker than one from the brewery. I did the Ginger saison and while that's still fermenting it's way darker than the pic in the book.

Im definitely going to go for the french saison. I knew some of the WLP yeasts are weird and i had never used any of those, so i just wanted to see what people who had used them thought. Thanks for the insight

If this was my beer and it tasted good or pretty good i would bottle it, in my experience the beer gets much better in the bottle. I wouldn't worry about the co2 coming out. Definitely check on the summer ale, it is in its area for good fermentation(temp. wise) and an ale's fermentation takes less time than a lager's.

General Homebrew Discussion / National Homebrew Day

Next monday is National Homebrew day (May 7th). I think i'm making a ginger saison, What are you guys brewing up?

What i did when i first dry hopped was i got a mesh hop bag from my local homebrew shop and i tied the bag to the end going into the beer and it helped not get any of the particles into my priming sugar bucket, it could work for you when racking into your secondary

One of the reasons i use a secondary is that apperantly your beer can pick up some weird flavors off the yeast cake on the bottom, although i don't know if this is true lol.
