Default Homebrew on Boing Boing

Just read a post over on Boing Boing about homebrewing.

The comments section on there is a fun read...

DME places a ceiling on the taste quality and gives homebrews a swampy flavor. The true way of brewing, doing a real mash with grains, is exponentially more time intensive, but is the only way to break through DME mediocrity.
Even though I am an all-grain brewer, I still found that hilarious! I used to make great beers with DME, and I drink other extract brewers beers that are great too. What a misconception.

Seconded. I brewed an IPA with DME and it's neither swampy nor mediocore, IMHO.

good lord what a pitiful misconception. I"ve NEVER brewed a "swampy" DME-based beer. I'm just getting started into all-grain and by no means do I have a bad partial-grain or extract-based experience.
