Default Dry Malt Extracts ?

Unhoped, hopped?
Coopers, Muntons, unlabeled cheap bulk bag?

If I go for the cheaper internet purchased DME's am I going to regret it in flavor?

Anyone got a line on something good and cheap ?

Get the lightest, unhopped dry extract and use hops and specialty grains to get your color, flavor and bitterness. How much is there a price difference between extracts?

I've used Briess and Munton's interchangeably. I like the light, or extra light, and they work fine. I'd get the cheapest.

Unhopped and light colored extract gives you the most flexibility. You can make ANY beer out of it by adding specialty grains and hops suitable for each batch. Some people even buy DME in 55 pound bags!
