"I’ve been brewing all grain for about 7 years and have really enjoyed the flexibility/creativity it affords. Lately I haven’t had as much time to brew so I decided to buy some DME to replenish my supply of IPA. 

I am very pleasantly surprised at how good this extract IPA has turned out. I guess having brewed only all grain for so many years I had become something of a snob and thought that extract could not possibly be as good as all grain but honestly I think this is as good as any all grain IPA I have made. I was able to get 80% attenuation by subbing out 10% of the extract with cane sugar. I used US05 yeast and kept the temp at 66F. Boiled full volume for only 20 minutes and used Summit as the bittering charge followed by Cashmere at 10 min and for Dry Hopping. Used DI water and added 1 tsp of Gypsum.

Not sure how this will translate to my other favorite styles i.e. Saison, Porter and Bitters but I definitely intend to find out. It’s great to know I can use extract when time is short and I want to get a brew in."

Some good replies too:

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.

I seem to remember my extract brews were decent enough and far better than the kits I'd done. Think it cost me about £30 for a US IPA though! Timing aside, I do like the idea of making my beer all from raw ingredients. Plus, the smell of malt in the mash is fantastic!

Can't argue with that. Compromise! Short mini mash, 30 minutes. Cut the amount of extract, get the aroma.
