I have been BIABing for about a year and a half now. Most brew have been pretty darn good. A few that sucked due to recipe and or mash ph. Anyhow, I have kid number 3 coming in December and I will be mixing in some full volume partial mashes to save some time.
I know extract can make good beer, thats not in question. I'm just trying to figure out some styles that go well with LME. Anyone here switch back to partial mashes?
Obviously the lighter beers are out of question. I'll do all grain when it helps.
so what styles are easy to get away with extract?
Also, I have only done a few partial mashes and used Light LME. I'm looking at my local guys recipes and I am eyeing a northern brown that uses Amber malt extract. Can anyone fill me in on the flavor of amber malt extract and what it is made of?? What places do other extracts serve other than light extract? Especially when using partial mash grains? Thanks for opinions and thoughts.
