    Dark ale

    I agree to that, after it cools down a bit I am going to make a Beef & Guinness Pie with the Toucan, I reckon that would be a pie with a high ABV. Also have you ever tried making Beer Batter with Home Brew, some almost bring the Fish back to life.

    Joke For The Day!

    Here's one for you, A group of chaps, all aged 40, discussed where they should meet for a reunion lunch. Finally it was agreed that they would meet at Wetherspoons in Parramatta because the waitresses had big boobs and wore mini-skirts. Ten years later, at age 50, the friends once again discussed where they should meet for lunch. Finally it was agreed that they would meet at Wetherspoons in Parramatta because the food and service was good and the beer selection was excellent. Ten years later, at age 60, the friends again discussed where they should meet for lunch. Finally it was agreed that they would meet at Wetherspoons in Parramatta because there was plenty of parking, they could dine in peace and quiet, and it was good value for money. Ten years later, at age 70, the friends discussed where they should meet for lunch. Finally it was agreed that they would meet at Wetherspoons in Parramatta because the restaurant was wheelchair accessible and had a toilet for the disabled. Ten years later, at age 80, the friends discussed where they should meet for lunch. Finally it was agreed that they would meet at Wetherspoons in Parramatta because they had never been there before. Enjoy joke.rtf

    I reckon most Beers are good on a hot/warm/cool/cold day, however I guess that's why we make Stout.

    Hi Yeasty Boy, I have done Mexican Cerveza with that yeast, it's good, In fact I used the Dry Ale pack in my Toucan Stout - awesome !! Cheers.

    Hi YeastyBoy, I chucked in the Galaxy Hops into the Crystal Malt after boiling & steeped them together, then it all went into the FV. I used 2 x Pkts Brigalow Yeast x 5gm each. I did exactly the same this morning with a Coopers Draught this morning ( first time) started fairly high, so see what happens. Cheers

    Nothing really flash, a fellow brewer whom lives close to me gave me some Joe White Light Crystal Malt, I crushed, boiled & steeped about 350gms along with Brigalow Australian Galaxy Hops 20gms & Coopers Light Dry Malt x 1kg, probably not totally orthodox, but the end result was awesome, sadly I have about 6 x Long Necks left now about 6 months old. I have to do it again. I hope you enjoy whatever you create. Cheers Phil

    Well that's great. It will be interesting to see if any other dudes have Kegerator Set-ups, it has given me inspiration to work harder & get one. Cheers.

    Hi Zelly, I am sure some of the more learned folk will swamp you with recipes & ideas etc, but I have done (2) batches of Coopers Dark Ale, one with the basic kit instruction & it turned out perfect. The 2nd batch I added Grain/Malt/Hops & it was even better, much more punch & better head retention. It seems that experimentation is the key. Anyway good luck, I am sure the guys will throw something at you, Cheers.

    I noticed in earlier posts you your moving so I assume you have & that's the new Bar setup. It would put a few home bars to shame. Enjoy

    Well that's a great set-up, I would like a Kegerator but need to further my skills before I attempt kegging etc. I have a pilot mate (Captain) he gas one but he earns a tad more than me !! Cheers.

    Dark ale

    Hey Zelly, I am no expert, but the Coopers Dark Ale I made according to the kit instructions about 6 months ago turned out perfect, sadly it's all gone now, but I found the finished product to be very forgiving. The longer it was in the fridge, the better it got, I will be doing it again. Enjoy.
