    Yeah i normally leave it aside for a few minutes before testing anyway when im messing about haha normally having a beer! Could have maybe been the liquid malt that looked quite dark so did the tin of mix think ill be trying part grain next for the better taste.

    Cool then i used brew enhancer 1 just cause i got it with the kit so 2 or 3 would be a better taste that way or maybe a different mix i could do myself? Just done the canadian blonde that was between around 20 most the time with a muntons brew enhancer hopefully that's less cidery then

    Coopers standard yeast

    Which would you recommend? i bottled mine two weeks ago and it was quite warm when I done it probably like 23-25c tastes kind of cidery when i tried one tonufht Would that pass if i leave it to condition?

    Would a higher temp say 25c give a different taste to brewing say 18c just out of curiosity also i always do lager can o goop kits thanks.
