Quite honestly, all grain can be (and frequently is) as easy as partial mash. Granted, I only ever did one partial mash but since switching to all grain I've found the process to be as easy in most respects. The single biggest difference I have found in extract/partial mash and all grain is the initial investment, otherwise the process is easy for all of them. I am finding that I have a cleaner kitchen doing all grain because there's plenty of down-time in the process that I'm able to keep things organized and picked up, rather than when I did extract/partial I felt attached to the stove thus trying to fit in the remainder.

Price, control, variety, and results...in that order for me I guess. For the prices I charge my friends for beer...."free"....perhaps I couldn't afford extract any more....cheers.

It's not about it being "easier"!! It is about enjoying the process of brewing. Brewing with extracts takes a large part of the brewing process out of your hands.

Extract beer causes shingles.

This.


If it was all about "easy", we'd either be buying 30 packs of High Life, or making Mr. friggin' Beer.

Frozen pizza is easy, too. But I make my own. Canned spaghettio's are easy. But I make my own pasta and sauce.

Easy can be convenient. But "good" or "excellent" is a better target, I think.
