DME + LME

(1/1)

flbrewer:
Why would a recipe http://digitaleditions.walsworthprintgroup.com//display_article.php?id=846711&id_issue=82760, call for both DME and LME of the same extract? Wouldn't converting one to another allow for the same exact effect while only using one?

dmtaylor:
Apparently the recipe designer prefers the taste of LME but doesn't like to use a partial can.  Makes sense to me.  Feel free to substitute as you see fit.  If you brew it differently then it becomes YOUR recipe!

My lhbs sells lme in 6 or 8 lb bags. Always wrote extract recipes with either of those as starting points.

Agreed. Most recipes call for full can quantities of LME. LME is a lot more perishable then DME, so most brewers don't like to have partial cans laying around.

ranchovillabrew:
Also a problem to measure lme.  Need two containers to weigh the lme. Much easier to add dme to bump up gravity
