  1. Just tried my first bottle of AMBRE AMOUR - FRENCH SAISON made from the Coppers recipe. This is only the sixth brew I've ever made. Absolutely blown me away. Never thought I'd end up making something that tastes as good and complex as this. Couldn't get the Styrian Golding Hops so used Styrian Wolf instead and doubled the amount. Used them in the malt brew and dry hopped as well. The Belle Saison yeast also adds great spicy flavours. Most impressed. Not putting it in the fridge, just fetching it from out of the garage slightly below room temperature. Nice change from the Pale Ales I've been brewing. Can recommend the recipe for sure.
  2. Cheers! hope it goes well Im enjoying mine right now. Defiantly try it again but wth a mix of NZ and Aus hops. Motueka, Galaxy and Engima?
  3. Hah! Yep, those dark beers are a commitment. I've just done a Pils (Black Rock). Not sure how its gone. Put out a terrible sulphur stink (which I believe is normal for larger yeasts) but calmed down enough to bottle. Had it in the fermenter for 16 days until it smelt like beer. Wort tasted good prior to bottling. Fingers crossed. Cheers.
  4. Thanks for the tip. I have some Motueka hops in the fridge so could give the Hop Slam a whirl. Maybe one less box of dried malt? Know what you mean with the high ABV. Four schooners enough for me!
  5. Caught the Gash Slug vid on YouTube. It actually got me inspired to try the Anarchy recipe. I'll check out the Red Rattler in the meantime bought the Shark Fin kit. I'll get that bubbling on the weekend and Red Rattler after that, it looks a goodee. Cheers and thanks for the tip.
  6. Just opened an Anarchy IPA after four weeks carbonating in the bottle. Damn fine beer. This is the first Coopers recipe I've tried. A bit adventurous for me using malt grain and three types of hop. Followed the instructions to the letter (except had to substitute the Chinook hops with Amarillo). Couldn't have worked out better but maybe another 25g of dried hops next time. "As good as a bought one" as they say. Looking to try another Coppers recipe. Any recommendations?
