This is a quick and simple tip… Dry Malt Extract dissolves more easily into cold water than it does into hot water.  That seems a little counter-intuitive to me, but I’ve found it to be true.  It seems to clump up a lot less and just generally dissolve more easily.  I can’t take credit for this one, I heard it from John Palmer author of How to Brew.
