Default Looking to try a new extract beer

I'm a pretty newbie brewer been doing it for a couple of months now. Brewed lots of different beers from wheat to dark ales to stouts and so on. Just wondering what people have made from extracts and if they could share there recipes with me lookin to brew a couple of batches up. I usually use the coopers kits and just work from there. Look forward to seeing and trying some of your recipes

Did you use a larger kit for that? I've been wanting to do a lager but i live in Australia and its too hot at the moment. If you could share your recipe that would be great, looking forward to hearing how your Oktoberfest goes.

What kind of beer are you looking for? My best extracts have been my Simcoe IPA, my basic stout (good on its own but also good for additions to make a PB stout or chocolate stout), and my Lawnmower Saison. All very different, obviously.

I've made this a couple of times and people love it! Great beer. If you've never used steeping grains then let me know and I can run you through it. I can add some notes to the bottom of the recipe. It uses liquid yeast too so be sure to get the yeast mentioned as that is what provides the flavor for this beer! Either slightly banana or clove.

Go to the Recipe Database
Pick a style.
Look for "Extract" under the "Prefix" tag.

I'm an Austin Hombrew Supply fan, and they have 1133 offerings, probably all with an extract option.

Steeping grains are often for flavor and/or color, without contributing many/any fermentables to the wort (as is the point in a partial mash). I personally think steeping grains add a ton to extract beers. Almost as much as punctuation adds to a post.
