I’m doing my fruit essence beers as extract and I’m looking forward to a 1.5 hour brew session! Many of my mates say the two best brews I made were the galaxy single hop pale and Amarillo pale, both extract with no added steeping grains or anything. I’d say it works best for pales and wheat beers, limited styles but does those perfectly well. It’s not as satisfying for me though. And it’s freaking expensive
Costs more for sure, but a lot of time saved. I think it works well for darker styles too. Steep the roasted grains.
