*** A dunkelwiezen Extract***Scroll down the kits and extracts page and look at my post "first go of an extract brew" cascarillo american pale ale.
This was easy to do and worked really wel and tasted good when it started fermenting. Its not finished yet but is going along nicely and smells amazing.
Give it a go i am also just starting to switch from kits to full extract brews and i am confident this will be pretty good.
