So I am making a Brooklyn Brown from Beer Captured and I bought Light instead of extra light DME. Will this make a diff? How will it affect the beer?

Thanks
Tom

Not noticeably, maybe a few points darker but no change in flavor. You might notice a bit more roasty flavor with a Dark DME, but light vs. extra light - don't worry.
