This is the receipe i want to try:
Magic Hat #9 Clone
OG: 1.051 IBU 25
FG: 1.011 SRM 13 5.1% Alc/Volume

Crushed Grain:
1/2# 60oL crystal Malt - Steep for 20M @155o

Extract:
5.5# M&F light DME
.5# M&F wheat DME

Hop Schedule:
1.5oz Tettnanger 60m
1/4oz Willamette 15m
1/4oz Cascade 15m
1tsp Irish Moss 15m

Yeast:
Wyeast 1056 American Ale

Add to secondary:
3oz Apricot beer flavoring

Priming:
1 and 1/4 cup M&F extra-light DME


Says use M&F, do you think using a differnt brand would change the flavor alot? Wish they sold smaller sizes rather then 3.3lbers.

Thanks.

The brand won't make a big difference. You can generally use a pale DME to replace a light DME, as well.

It's a good idea to filter out the hops before fermenting. It makes for easier clearing later. Some people don't bother. Depending on the addition schedule, leaving them in can change the aroma
