    Is it me , or has anybody else noticed that medium DME dissolves a lot better in water than light DME ? With the light you tend to get the big clumps that take a while to stir out, no such problem with medium. Only thing i can think of is that its coarser. Any other suggestions ?

    I don't notice any difference tbh. But what I have noticed is that DME seems to disssolve better in cold water (rather than hot), something I seem to remember reading on here some time back. But there is a noticeable difference in the flavours between medium and light DME if you use them in quantity. Apart from the obvious darker colour medium DME definitely brings its own 'roasty' flavours to beer compared to light DME and so I have stopped using medium. If I want to add roasty flavour Ill do it via grain additions so I know whats gone in.
