Do you have hops? If you had hopped malt extract before, but now have plain dry malt extract, you'll also need some hops.
For a 2 gallon batch of beer, you'd generally need 2-3 pounds of extract, some hops, and some grains (but only a little bit) like crystal malt (for most beers) or some roasted barley( for a stout).
