Canned beer kits include hopped malt extract and dry yeast. They usually require the addition of approximately two pounds of dried malt extract (or sugar) to make a full batch. We recommend using the lightest colored dry malt extract (such as Munton’s Extra Light or Briess Pilsen) for the best results. If desired, finishing and dry hops can also be added.
