    Hi guys,

    First post so please go easy! I have not long brewed this beer and was looking for some feedback on how it may turn out. This is my second brew after a successful first batch was bottled a few weeks ago. I appreciate any constructive feedback. I look forward to participating in this forum. Seems like there is a lot of good people on here with as much passion for beer as I have.

    No issues with the recipe - it looks like a relatively solid extract IPA. My only issue is why add the syrups as late additions? Boiling them the full 60 minutes would get you some kettle caramelization that might add flavors. Of course, it would decrease your hop utilization. Still, it's your beer. Brew it as planned and let us know how it comes out!

    I agree its a good recipe

    an another note I see people doing this all the time, they buy a few kits with lme and dme in it and then after a while make their own recipe with the same products in it but honestly unless you just like it better you don't need liquid malt, just add more dme. the companies make the kits up that way just to promote the sale of the products, dry is easier to use and stores longer

    I'm not saying to remove it, it will be fine, just my 2 cents
