    • Hi, im new to this and bought first kit, im confused about how much sugar / dextrose to pour in, i got the coopers english ale kit with one pack of dried yeast - any help would be appreciated 
    • So the lager yeast Coopers put in their Ale / lager blend is a beast. My Doppelbock has hit a FG of 1.014 (down from 1.080). So it will be around 9.2% abv once bottle conditioned. Tastes super rich and malty. I'll give it another week to clear up and then bottle. Maybe I won't use half litre bottles for this batch... Better get to work emptying some smaller ones. The second runnings beer got a 3g/l Nelson Sauvin dry hop and will be bottled on Monday. Cheers,  John
    • how many do you think goes on sale ? surely theyre missing a trick here if their supply cant meet demand ? id assume they'd be business savvy enough to stock up on the ingredients that are outside the norm , in this instance the grain and the hops theyve definitely made a killing from the mark up on this compared to the dark monk where you got a lot more bang for your buck
    • This week I have been listening to: Amorphis - Queen of Time Bad Wolves - Disobey The Magic Gang - The Magic Gang (a bit of power pop for something different) I have also been revisiting the back catalogue of Teenage Fanclub. Great band!
    • For what it's worth, I am drinking my own Janet's Brown now. I followed Tasty's recipe - including the Northern Brewer - and it's a beauty. It is definitely a hoppy brown ale and perfect for Autumn. My palette is not educated enough to pick out the Northern Brewer so I can't help you out there but that recipe would be a pretty good starting point I'd reckon.   Good luck with the beer 👍
