Can someone tell me what I can do to get rid of the malt taste in my brews.

I have heard of grains, mash, sour mash, blah blah blah, and have no idea if they are the answer or not.

Any advice on brewing types of tastes will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance. ;)

I would suggest brewing a hoppy IPA if you don't like the taste of malty beers. Perhaps spiced or fruit beers would mask the taste too.

Thanks for your reply Roger.

What I am really chasing is that very crisp taste you get with a beer like Corona, if that makes sense.

What do you get from using grains, instead of buying the regular stuff for fermenting in a vat?

I may be way off the mark but I am thinking the urchased kits give a malty taste and the mash oruse of grains is what is required for that sharp taste.

Anyway brewed using grain can you tell me or describe what flavour you get?

"Doctor, it hurts when I do this..."

"Well, don't do that."
