As luck would have it, I did 2 extract batches (the first in a long while for me) and I used Breiss LME in both!  One is a Saison and the other a dark lager.  I hope they turn out okay!  I used bottled water in both, so I wasn't adding much minerals to either batch.  You would think that Breiss would mitigate that in their malt extract products by diluting with RO or otherwise treating the water...

I use breiss LME and 100% RO all the time. The beer will not be salty.

In my experience, the problem with excess sodium is not saltiness but a weirdly enhanced maltiness.
