Delicious SMaSH idea, jpsloan. I give it ten thumbs up. Brew it, and brew it fast. You won't be disappointed.

Dingemans Belgian Pils was another bag I spotted there (believe I saw 4 or 5) and they are also $7.99 for 10#.
I wish I had your LHBS's prices! I'm paying $17.50 for 10# of MO or Pils here. Even domestic 2-Row is $15 for 10#. Makes for an EXPENSIVE IIPA or Barleywine.

So if I'm using Briess 2-row LME (American), would it always be a good idea to add some biscuit or victory to my IPA and ESB recipes? Do American IPAs usually us MO?

I'll line that sucker up right after I give Biermuncher's OktoberFast Ale a kick in the as$.!

Where in Illinois are you located or better yet, what HBS is this? $7.99 for 10 lbs of MO is a great price.

Okay, here it is in a nutshell:

If you're brewing an American style, use American ingredients.

If you're brewing an English style, use English ingredients.

If you're brewing a Belgian style, use Belgian ingredients.

Ad nauseum.

Why try to approximate (or half-ass) your way into something when a better ingredient or combination of ingredients is readily available?

If you're using Briess LME to make an English style, it might be worthwhile to add just a hint of biscuit, say a couple of ounces.

If I were brewing an American IPA, I'd use American 2-row, some American Munich, some American 40L crystal, American "C" hops, and call it a day.

Cheers,

Bob

Because I don't do all-grain, and I've never seen MO extract. The second half of your post answered my question, though.

If you haven't seen it, you haven't looked. There are more than a few outlets which sell Maris Otter extract. John Bull make it in tins, though I hear that company is closing, which are widely available in homebrew shops. http://morebeer.com/ sell Maris Otter extract in bulk liquid form.

Where does morebeer carry MO in LME? I only found it in one kit. They describe their Briess LME as being one of the lightest available, which certainly doesn't sound like MO to me.

This is me with egg on my face! I sincerely apologize. They used to carry MO extract.

William's have it, and if your LHBS can get John Bull, it can come in tins.

Cheers,

Bob
