It has been a while since I've used any type of malt extract, but I can see that if I'm going to make a really high gravity beer in the near future, I would consider some sort of extract in addition to mashing grains up to 1.060, or something. Is there a "best" or a preferred type of extract nowadays? I guess the best stuff was Alexander's Sun Country extra light or Munton's extra light dried malt extract.

What's the best stuff now?

Canadian United. Only available in bulk. I used to get it from a ubrew. It's also diastatic so you can use it to convert adjuncts.

My favorite has been Coopers. I've tried most of them - there's another I like, but I forget the brand. If I remember to check when I get home I will post it.
