So.. whats this Liquid Malt Extract business then?

Post by EchoSevenNine » Wed Jun 12, 2019 3:15 pm

So i think i'd like to move up the Whiskey ladder a bit with a LME recipe, rather than flavouring and oaking my neutral.

Would this be a good stepping stone for me?

Anyone point me in the direction of a solid simple recipe to get me going?

Thanks in advance, you lovely people.

Hello mate, I had a go at making some last year.
Used a 15ltr tea urne and a brewing bag. I used
malt grain, a mix of peated and ordinary.
Made a "beer" and fermented, distilled and aged
with French Oak. 8 months later I had my product
not going to call it Whiskey or Whisky, but my bud
who loves the stuff tried it and mumbled Spayside?
I think he liked it, took a bottle with him.
I would say LME would make a good brew with less
effort, but more expense.
Sub LME for sugar so 5kg to a wash??

I thought i'd beaten everyone with that question for a while there!

LME is what it says on the packet its processed grain.
All the good beer kits contain it.
As a result although more expensive it will do the job.
The purists will use grain so they can tinker with their
recipes and use different grains for flavour etc.. :)
