a few months ago I picked up a couple cans (one hopped one unhopped) of John Bull dark malt extract and ended up making an excellent schwarzbier with it. I see that the John Bull brand has been discontinued. Should I despair of even recreating this excellent beer or does anyone know of a comparable alternative?
I've since made an ale with a couple cans of muntons dark and it doesn't seem nearly as dark a beer as what the john bull made.
Any advice is appreciated.
