I think a 4oz Amber DME starter @ 1.030 would not impact your brew at all.I think the kit you

cider.I prefer to u...

I would suggest add 1/2 or the whole bean to half of your batch. That way you have one plain

If it was me I would go for 1Lb Light DME and a full 1 Lb of Caramel Malt. Expect it to finish

in so far...
