You could use DME,but it might change the flavor from how the recipe was put together to get that flavor.

Anyone ? Can I use the exact amount of DME for my kitthat they say for sugar ? Is the sugar and DME the same sugar content ? Will I have the same OG ?

twocan/toocan is a common step-up from kit and kilo.

some will use 2 cans of hopped extract (2 kits) or 1 kit can and 1 can of LME.

I have done 4-5 of kit and kilo. For a darker beer i got 1 can Pre hopped LME and 1kg of DME but for a lighter beer i got 1 can pre hopped LME, 500grams (1 lbs ish) DME and 500grams of dextrose. Too much DME can make those kits a bit too sweet for my taste. The dextrose drys out thise lighter beers.
