    Hi Folks new to this but ran a first batch with this - its quite a simple recipe but worked out pretty good, just open to any feedback good or bad, my intentions were to make a low cost ale with good flavor, I am also thinking of using DME for priming next time vs dextrose a friend mentioned it would add a cremier taste?

    Simple is good. Brew this beer exactly the same way over and over till it tastes the same every time, then start changing the recipe.
