I am looking to brew a Honey Weizen, similar to Northern Brewers recipe, and it calls for 6 lbs of Wheat liquid extract. My LHBS only carries dry wheat extract. Can I use 6 lbs of dry extraxt and achieve the same results?
You can actually get away with less. LME has water so you can get away with about 25% less DME by weight.
Ok good, I was hoping I could just the the DME. Thanks for the fast responses!!
How did your brew come out with all DME?
Did you use 5 lbs?
I used less than the 6lbs of LME in the original recipe, about 5lbs I would say. I came out great.
