quick question on using DME. My wife gave me a early father's day gift of a honey nut brown ale she bought through one of our local brew shops. The kit contains all DME for the recipe. I've used a combination of DME and LME in the past and had a terrible time using the DME. When pouring the DME in the bag it tends to clump up around the bag and turn into a mess. Any tips on an easier process to pour the DME into the wort?
Pour it into a stainless steel bowl (or a ceramic bowl for that matter) before you put it near the boil kettle. Then dump it in from the bowl, and you can dip the bowl into the liquid in the kettle to get what remains in the bowl, into the kettle.
Just in case you skipped all the previous posts and jumped directly to mine, pour the DME in a stainless mixing bowl and then dump it in. Dip the bowl into the wort to get the remaining extract. Your welcome.
