I've heard of this extract twang before.
I have to ask, those of you using extract are you producing beers that taste as good or better than commercial examples? I keep hearing how much better homebrew tasted but I've yet to sample one that is great.
My LHBS has a brew club meeting Saturday so I'm taking some along to get opinions and hopefully I can sample some others.
I'm getting a 15 gallon pot and plan to do full boils from now on in case that has an effect. Is it just the extract? I've been thinking of going AG, if that is what it takes I'm fine with that. There isn't much point in saving money by doing homebrew if I can't drink it.
