When I'm going to add a pre-hopped LME can,I use 3lb of plain DME in the boil for any hop additions. Never boil pre-hopped extracts.You mess up the hop profile already in it.

Ok, starting to make more sense. What kind of plan would you use if you were going to use 2 cans of hopped lme and some hopps for aroma? Sorry if it seems I am asking you everything but coming here and doing it..lol.. I just dont want to mess it up. And I am learning alot in this thread and reading others.

I wouldn't use 2 hopped cans & no plain DME. You're just putting yourself in the same boat. You need some un-hopped (plain) malt,whether DME or LME to do the hop additions. DME is better since it doesn't darken as readilly as LME.

Sounds good. I will hold off until I get some dme. Then I can just follow one of your recipes. I will start after Christmas on this. Thanks for all the help. I have learned alot, but have alot to learn. I will post here when I am ready to start if I have questions. Thanks for being patient.

No problem. My recipes can also be looked at as guide lines on the general process I use with regard to pre-hopped LME's.
