Found a deal online for 3# of DME for $5.99 and I had seen some posts before for a no boil NEIPA so figured why not and got 15#'s worth.  The plan is  to use 6#'s of DME and .5# of plain sugar and brew up a 1.060 wort.  I plan to bring it to 165-170 and hit it with Chinook and Citra and "whirlpool" for 20-30 minutes then chill it down hit it with some S-09 and see what happens.  Dryhop will be Chinook, Citra and Simcoe and this should be a quick turn around beer and a quick brew-day.

 

One thing I am still not sure is water adjustment.  I may add in a bit of CaCL to the water to get that mouthfeel but not sure.

This is your style so I think it would be a fun brewday. It will be cool to see how you feel about a beer made with extract after all of this all-grain brewing you've done. Please report back on the brewday and the beer itself. Also, what's S-09?  On the water I think I would use the exact amount you expect to have as your 'finished' product... right around 5 gallons.  There will be additional volume because of the DME which could bring it to 5.25 gallons I suppose.  Good luck Extract Man.  :P

yes,  I am curious how it will compare and that is why I am using the hop bill for my most common NEIPA/Hazy beer.

 

S-09 is my blend of S-05 and S-04.

Yeah,  I got tired of spelling it out so I just went with S-09.  It works and so does the blend :)

I brewed with extract for an unbelievable 5 years. I often wonder how a batch of lager would come out with just some pale DME, maybe steep some carahell, etc. and then boil with some Hallertau. But the cost of DME is usually an issue. Just to buy some for starters can be painful. :D

I agree the cost is a lot that is why I had not done it till I found the 3#'s for 5.99.  Loooks like it is normally 12.99 for 3#'s?

what type of DME is it?  curious since you aren't using any steeping grains.

Golden Light 4 lovibond.

 

I debated steeping something or even some carapils or carahell... not sure yet if I will or not..most likely not for this batch.

does the company provide any info on what grains went into it?  sometimes I think there is a little dextrine in there anyway.

Honestly, not sure.  I got the box and opened it up and brought it to the brewery to make my wife happy :)

 

Looks like there is some carapils in there like you mention http://www.brewingwi...denLightDME.pdf

You might want to consider adding a bit of sugar for fermentability.

In the OP I mentioned add a half pound of sugar to the 6#'s of DME. Do you think that is not enough and I should use a full pound?

Got it thanks!  Been about 15+ years since I made an extract batch.

I made a bunch of them a few years back when I was testing the rye extract from Briess. I was amazed at how much better they turned out than I remembered. I think that it's a sign that it's experi3nce that makes a difference, not the extract itself.

Briess Wheat LME is real good for Hefe's. There is a comp at our brew guild picnic and the winner is usually a beer someone threw together with it. I won this year with it and a packet of lalemand munich classic.
