Spray malt is also known as Dry Malt Extract (DME) and is basically the same as Liquid Malt Extract (LME) but without water. Most of malt extract is fermentable and is what gives beer its malty taste (if made whole or in part with it) and perhaps a little sweetness due to the unfermentable part. Malt extract sold for brewing comes in range of colours from Extra Light to Extra Dark, and the darker it gets the more flavour as well as colour it introduces. If you use dextrose it will wholly ferment into alcohol and CO2 which just introduces dryness to the finished beer. However some beers need this dryness in their profile.I think I will just go with the kit right now.
I am new to this so I am not sure what spray malt does.
This lovely beer has a light cooper with a white fluffy head which has a rounded toffee note with a herbal hop character which tastes of toffee and caramel with a light earthy character finished with a firm bitterness
