I like to get bulk DME too, so I can brew whenever i feel like it. Its easier to weigh out than LME so IMO its easier to control the OG. Plus, having some DME kickin around is always good for...

I always use DME, I just think its way easier to work with than the syrup. I always spill or burn the liquid. Dry just floats on top of the water, and all the clumps melt out by the time I hit a...
