Hi, I have read it said that liquid yeast is of no use on malt extract brews and that at least 25% of the recipe must be grain, firstly does anyone on this site agree with this, and secondly, if so, is the 25% bill, a pre mash one? Cheers.

I’ve never done a direct comparison of different yeasts with an extract brew, but I can’t see why all yeasts would give the same result.

I’m calling bullshit on this.

Never heard that before. I would have thought yeast would just want to munch through wort and would not be able to distinguish between the two.
