Why do some kits come with liquid malt extract and dry malt extract? Aren't these the same thing? Also, I used to brew with fresh grains in a grain bag which was steeped in the brewpot. My local brew stores only offer kits with liquid malt extract and of course dry malt extract. . It seems like cheating to me. Are there any noticeable taste differences between the two? It seems more like making soup than beer. This is my first brew in 8 years.
