DME places a ceiling on the taste quality and gives homebrews a swampy flavor. The true way of brewing, doing a real mash with grains, is exponentially more time intensive, but is the only way to break through DME mediocrity.
Even though I am an all-grain brewer, I still found that hilarious!
I used to make great beers with DME, and I drink other extract brewers beers that are great too. What a misconception.
