I was planning on getting a homebrewgearcanada wheat beer extract kit, but they seem to have no kits in stock at the moment, so I thought I would give either the morgans or coopers kit a try. I want to make a fruit wheat, with likely peaches once they are in season, or maybe raspberries since they are in season now. Which of the 2 would be better for this application?
Secondly, I don't want to add brew enhancer or other sugar garbage to the beer, would adding an appropriate amount of light DME be ok? or would adding barley malt to a wheat beer we a bad idea?
Primary: Brown Ale
Secondary: Plzen that is lagering
Keg: Irish Red

I like the coopers kits, the coopers.com.au website has the guy who designs the products on the forum (PB2) and they have good recipes for their kits
