My review is one of those on their site. I brewed the extract kit and am very impressed, slightly hoppy and definately malty although it did not turn out as smooth as I'd like.

would an extra # or 2 of DME help?

I was also thinking of adding 1# honey.

I would think the honey would dry it out a bit. I would go with more dme if anything.

How about making it an Irish Dubble and adding 1# Dark Candi Syrup and 2# of the sparkling amber DME?

I think I'll add 2# DME to the boil and 1# honey to the fermenter.
