I think that your LHBS or home-brew mail-order guy makes ****loads of money off of DME and LME. Buy grain or go home!

I've used both, but I like DME for all the reasons everyone else does. I like Exo's idea because extract is too damn expensive, and I'm a control freak. Next batch: AG!

My LHBS carries several brands of extracts (both dry and liquid). Another topic might be variations in taste among one type or the other.
