I also know a few all-grain brewers who've gone back to extract for space and time efficiency (I've thought about it myself a few times, just to fill the kegs). I guess they were tired of being brewers.  :o

When Briess was developing a rye extract for NB, I brewed several extract batches with it to come up with a recipe for Rye IPA for NB.  I had an all grain version of it on tape, also and I was amazed at how close the extract version came to the AG.

Actually when I make fruit wheat beers for my wife I use Briess extracts and some flaked wheat when time is a factor.  She likes a fruit bomb and with that level of fruit presence I'm hard pressed to tell the difference. I guess I'm making soup on those days instead of beer.

I would love to able to afford to brew an extract batch from time to time.
