  • Interest was sparked by a presentation at a local library by KLOB (Kalamazoo Libation Organization of Brewers). I then recieved a Brewers Best kit from my daughter for Christmas 2011. My first batch was a Robust Porter from Brewers Best. This turned out well, but definatly learned from my mistakes! Second is also a BB kit and is a Belgian Tripel and as this is written (3-2012) looks and smells f-ing awsome in the secondary. Definatly planning on moving beyond the kit stage now!

    I don't use much DME, but was curious and asked this same question at a recent home-brew demo.
    Haven't tried this but was told that DME dissolves pretty well in cool water, so you might be
    able to avo...
