I think the extract twang is what I'm dealing with right now. I have 70 bottles and 5 gallons ready to add to that stock pile and I'm praying the latest brew (a bock) doesn't have that twang. Somehow I missed gravity by a mile (went OG 1.076 to FG 1.010, target was 1.070 and 1.022) for the first time. I'm going for a late extract addition this time.

As far as a burner, I went to Home Depot and bought a $50 turkey fryer and got a 7.5 gallon aluminum pot with it. Burner works great when you finally get it set up. I missed a step or they forgot to tell me that there was a flame detector!

Good luck, let us know how it turns out!

The late extract additions should take care of the twang. It did for me. That,& using plain DME in the boil,saving remaining DME & all the LME for flame out additions.

My next batch is a honey wheat so we will see how it looks.

You should get the right color & flavor with my method. I can even get down to straw gold the way I do it. Got a batch of a light pale ale I call Hopped & Confused bottled up 4 weeks next Saturday. 12 will go in the fridge for a week. 2 days past valentine's though darn it. Close but no cigar...
