Mr. Beer liquid malt extract specific gravity

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


 I know the answer to this question is obvious, but I thought I'd check here just to be sure.

 

It's my understanding that the specific gravity of all liquid malt extract -- regardless of the style -- is about 1.036. Hence, one pound of liquid malt extract added to one gallon of water yields 1.036 or 36 gravity points per pound per gallon. Dry malt extract is supposed to be about 1.042 or 42 gravity points per pound per gallon.

 

Is this true for the cans of Mr. Beer liquid malt extract as well?

I can understand  DMEs being equivalent in strength, and when it is sugar crystals that is it. But what is the reason for that strength of LME being chosen?
