Looks like a consensus is not to use a ton of Dark DME in any particular batch. I see recipes out there calling for as much as 10lbs for a 5 gal batch of heavy holiday spiced ales, seems like a lot to me. Especially iwth the ambiguity of the constituents of the DME. (It's Briess by the way)
Either way, this experience has finally tipped me to all grain (other than using up this bag.)
