Hi - I'm leaving them in(grains) until 180 deg, not boiling as I mistakenly posted.
I bought some supplies at my LHBS and they guy(who is generally cool) was dead set against selling my DME. DME is too expensive, there's no difference, etc.
He said I should not have any weird aftertaste with LME and my beers should taste exactly the same as commercial micros they are supposed to emulate(better! he sez). He wants me to bring a bottle in, so I guess I will.
Although they do have the LME in these 50 gallon barrels which I am sure he is eager to keep moving and fresh.
Anyone think he is giving me bad advice?
