When I brew with an extract I boil 4 cups of water, then take it off of the heat, and add my Hopped Malt Extract to the hot water and stir. Once the extract has dissolved into the hot water it gets added to a gallon of chilled water in my fermentor, and then another 4 cups are added to that. Basically, the instructions for my Mr Beer 2 gallon brewing kit.


Yes, it can be done. No, there's no point to it. Some say that invert sugars are easier for the yeast to ferment, but the yeast will invert any sugars in the wort. Inverting the sugar first really makes no difference to the fermentation. Depending on how you do the inversion, you may or may not get Maillard reaction products that may affect the flavor.
