Use distilled water if you wish. The minerals are only important on AG. Your beer will use the water/malt compositions of the extract malt at the time of grain extraction at the maltster. So what you use is little to no consequence.

got everything exactly as described but the extract. the owner of supply store said that I could use 5 pounds of dry briess light pilsen malt extract for a substitute. that is what i bought think it will turn out good?

Without doing the math on the extract. I'd guess at saying you are good.

6 lbs LME vs 5 DME,

Who has a promash/beer tools calculator handy? I'm away from my brewery.

Try entering the recipe into this to check OG/FG and IBUs.

I just transferred this stuff to secondary after 5 days in primary. I must say, the aroma is outstanding, probably the best of any of the brews I've ever done so far.

Throw them in the fridge until you are ready to brew.

I'm planning on using this recipe for my next batch (come on, payday) but can't find any "special roast malt" on any of the sites I've looked at for buying it. Is there another name for "special roast" that I might be missing? What sort of flavor does special roast provide?
