My wife was going to buy me 3 kits from Morebeer for Christmas and the order was delayed. I live close to Grape and Granary in Ohio, but I believe that their beer kits come with canned Malt & DME vs 7lbs of Bulk LME with Morebeer. I want to put together 3 kits piecemeal and I am looking for some help.
Grape and Granary sells Briess LME in bulk (33#) for $69.00. Is this an okay LME? The kits that I had from Morebeer were the American Brown Ale, Porter and the Christmas Ale. Any recommendations on recipes and what type of LME should I get (light, amber, ?).
My favorite commercial brews are: anything Great Lakes (Edmund Fitzgerald is my favorite), Sierra Nevada Porter, I tried a few of the Octoberfest beers and liked most of them.
I know that this is a very vague request, but any help is appreciated.
