This is a picture of my first brew. This is the most basic of basic, using only liquid extract and it turned out wonderful.

Thanks to walker for hosting my picture.

What's it supposed to be? The style, I mean.

Looks like an amber, but a bit darker than a Marzen.

I'd guess a red ale.

This kit came with my beer making kit when i bought it. Its suppose to be a "light american beer" although it doesnt taste like the typical light beer. This uses a can of light lager liquid extract, and some irish moss... thats it. Its pretty good.

I really wanted to see some of your guys' beers.

The canned malt explains the darkness (amber color).

I found early on in my brewing career that canned malts get darker with age (the longer it is in the can the darker it gets). That's why I switched to DME.

Most of the time I use Extra Light or Wheat. Of course, I also have Amber and Light DME.

I used the liquid extract this time, and what normally would be a fairly light amber beer turned out to be dark amber.

I'm off to doing all grain for a while though.
