Plain Light Malt Extract Syrup?
« on: April 07, 2010, 08:04:03 AM »
Hello all,

I was hoping to deviate from kits and move on to using recipes.  I found the recipe for an Armenian Imperial Stout in the Papazian book (page 209).

It calls for Plain Light Malt Extract syrup.  I'm having a hard time finding this specifically.  Is light the same as "pale"?  Also is "extra" pale/light that different? I'd like to get everything from one place, and the recipe also calls for a Muntons Old Ale Kit which seems to limit where I can buy stuff from.  I was looking at Austin Homebrew Supply because they have the kit, but they don't seem to have the malt extract.

Thanks.

Anything called pale/light/extra light, etc. will be close enough to the same.
