nice, i tasted it and didn't notice much roasted. and 13 SRM isnt bad for a dark LME, so im hoping to be able to use it as a base for my pale ales/IPAs. possibly sub in a lb of light DME and/or some sugar to lighten it up.
my standard is usually about 7-8 lbs of light DME, with 8oz of crystal and 8 oz of Aromatic Malt, S-05 with 5-7 oz of various citrussy hops. im thinking take out the crystal since it is probably already in this extract.

the old ale sounds nice, ill try that when i get my hands on some brown malt.
i have some special roast, s-04 and cascade lying around so might give that a go too

thanks for the info. im sure ill have more questions and will be sure to post results as they come.

Pacaya, I assume that Dist Caribe stocks this LME?

As we slowly travel back to Guate I am putting together my brewing supplies order for my upcoming brewing season. Anybody interested in doing a group buy?

This would not likely save us much on the items but would on shipping vs individual orders.

Oh, and all the brews listed in secondary on my signature lines are in fact still in secondary (since we left in March). So, I should have some interesting samples for our reunion in Sept!

Wow, I noticed we are up to 12 members now!

How many of you might make it to the Sept 7 reunion?

That's right, you can just barely make out the DC logo on the 1st picture; upper left side of the jug's label.

Thanks for the offer, but I'm flat broke right now (and probably will remain so for the next 18 months, I'm gearing up to finish my studies by the end of next year). I did manage to stock up on LME NOV last year (6 jugs, down to 2.2 ATM), so it should last me well into next year. More equipment, I could really use; but it'll have to wait, then again I might just surprise you and take you up on the offer if I do quit and get a decent severance.
