  • The search is over, we have discovered the Coopers DIY Beer MASTER OF THE BREWNIVERSE!

    Congratulations to all who entered! We enjoyed seeing the creativity and craftsmanship of the beers entered and REALLY enjoyed tasting them.

    Our brewing team had the tough job of tasting through the Top 20 beers as voted in the State rounds.

    We then invited a few of our mates to taste through the Top 10 and tell us what they thought.  

    But there can be only one winner... over to Tim Cooper, Head Brewer & Managing Director of Coopers Brewery to tell you who takes out the top prize!

    • You’ll have that down to four hours after a couple of brews. It becomes second nature. It’s a great bit of kit 
    • Dex is not a sweetener, its a brewing sugar, like malt it does add sweetness to the beer. Regular white sugar was the go to in the old days when there were less options to buy brewing stuff and poor quality beer kits. People don't remember those beers fondly and many stopped brewing because of it. If all you've used is white sugar and no malt, you're probably going to get a very thin tasting and flavourless beer. Your beer fridge may be too cold for the fermentation to progress, you could stop the yeast from working. You need a temp around 18-20 but a bit higher will still work. It's best to go with the wet towel method for now.
    • What did you shoot a Golf today Otto ?
    • Sorry to hear that mate. I lost two gas bottles in two weeks when I  started  kegging only recently. I think it’s a rite of passage. To prevent my third I filled a basin with soapy water and chucked all the tubes and connectors in there. Mine happened due to dodgy threads on these new duotight fittings. I switched to the clamps and barb and touch wood my third gas bottle has been connected two weeks to three kegs and she’s working away. If nothing bubbles on your connector it’s more than likely the fittings on the kegs. I bought myself a spanner thing from Bunnings to tighten
