    Milk Stout

    The brains trust will be able to confirm but I think your oats have to be mashed with a base malt to extract the sugars you need.....otherwise you just end up with haze. Probably Won’t matter with a stout but I’m not sure how it affects flavour.... i recently added 250g of lactose to a stout. That was as per recipe for a 23ltr batch. If I do it again I might up the lactose maybe another 100g. Maybe. I also used 2 x 04 yeast packs Hope this helps. M

    Single fin clone?

    Have a look in the recipe section on the coopers diy site. Search for shark fin. I havnt done it but I’m guessing it’s something similar. I may be way off tho

    AIB Awards 2019

    @Beerlust That’s a winning attitude. I too figured it was more of a data collection exercise....if there is a majority of a certain style that is submitted, it may indicate a big number of coopers drinkers would drink and want to see a (for example) pacific ale in the line up. Just me 2c

    Different reading after 4 days

    @The Captain!! I figured as much but the last one made me hesitant....I never check the gravity that much. Dunno why I did it this time
  8. Checked gravity in day 6 1.017 (bumped temp up to 20 deg grav on day 8 1.015 grav on day 9 1.015 grav on day 10 1.015 grav on day 11 (today) 1.014 Is she still going? I was going to leave it for another day or so anyway. Was the yeast just having a sit down for a few days? Decided to get back to work this morning? TIA

    Cupla circular Sangas Under the story bridge for mother’s day. Good drop this one. Everything you want in a lager.

    Euro lager dress up

    @Aussiekraut I think the recipe I followed was the oktobest fest beer from the recipe section. Have a squiz.

    What's in your fermenter? 2019

    MosIPA My first IPA attempt I’m calling done at 1.015. Bittered with mosaic to 60ibu and dry hopped with mosaic, centennial and cascade. OG was 1.058 so I guess that’s about 6% bottled?

    Euro lager dress up

    I did this not long ago with 300g of steeped crystal 500g LDM and 10min boil of 30g saaz used w34/70 yeast and the coopers yeast but next time I’ll pitch two packs of w34/70 instead.

    For those who steep grains

    Yeah I don’t get enough grain to justify an actual mill at this stage. I think I just typed in bench top grain mill or something like flour grinder. Came from Sydney.

    For those who steep grains

    If you’re like me and get tired of using a rolling pin or mallet to crack your grains, I recently purchased this bad boy off eBay. $30 inc postage Ain’t bad. Also pictured is 200g of wheat malt I ran through it as a test

    Is this grain crush too fine?

    The ones that look whole are actually split in half
