I have successfully brewed three batches of beer, using prehopped LME and standard brewing procedures. I am now ready to step up my process, including using unhopped LME or DME, boiling my own fresh hops, and using liquid yeast. Does anyone have any advice on easy recipes, ingredients, and/or procedures I should try out for my movement into the intermediate brewing?

Thanks everyone!!!

Stanton

Hey Stanton
There are several kits you can buy that have DME and LME with steeping grains. Most offer either liquid or dry yeast. When you say boil your own fresh hops do you mean the ones you grew??

Apologies, I did not actually grow my own hops. Just wanting to use some fresh hops from the homebrew store.

I would acquire a recipe kit from Austin Homebrew Supply. As opposed to the Munton/Coopers kits you will get LME/DME, specialty grains, and the appropriate hops. In addition the kit comes with detailed instructions.

This should be a straightforward transition from your previous all extract batches.
