  1. Brew 014: Coopers Amber Ale- Monday 18th January: 169 hours (7.04 days) since cold crash. Brew Temp: 1.9C to 2.2C Comments: Just like I predicted, it has mellowed! It doesn’t feel like it is as bitter, and has a more rounded mouthfeel! I am not sure yet if we will batch prime all with maple or do a half and half with half maple batch and half bottled with carbonation drops. I will get my folks to sample as well tomorrow, since they helped me make it, and see what they think! Also, finally made up the spreadsheet, and SG and FG are only one point off! Amazing! SG: 1016 Photo(s):
  2. Haha, you had enough Stout for two identical batches: “what a shame” it evaporated before you could get to mixing in the second batch,
  3. Brew 014: Coopers Amber Ale- Wednesday 13th January: 46 hours (1.91 days) since cold crash. Brew Temp: 1.9C to 2.2C Comments: Cold crash progressing normally. Will taste after day 5 or so, to determine cold crash length, as final taste was “tart and tight”, so want to control the hops/bittering in this closely. I learnt from my accidental LGITW 2 week beez nees cold crash that it can actually help.... I think I made it better with the longer cold crash as it removed more hop oils and it wasn’t as funky by the time we got around to bottling it. Lol. (Summary: not sure yet!) Photo(s): Nil
  4. $13 brew!? Bah, “tell him he’s dream’n”. Give me enough time, to have enough leftovers from all my other exbeeriments, and “I’ll try t make yer stinking $8.23 brew!” Just a shame I still have 6 ish brews pending in my roadmap first!
  5. Maybe I could “fall on the sword” for the team, lol. Erm, on second thoughts, it’s a “Not yet” from me too.
  6. If any of my home brews turned out fluoro green, or sparkly, or both, I’d give up making home brew!

  8. Hello @Coopers DIY Beer Team, just checking if you are still on Holidays, or maybe just missed my question over the break. Any information would be appreciated.
  9. Brew 014: Coopers Amber Ale- Friday 8th January: 148 hours (6.17 days) since pitch. Brew Temp: 18.9C - 19.3C SG: 1016 Appearance: Milky orange muddy water. Nose: Light pine, almost hints of mint. Tropical fruits. Palate: Crisp. Bitter. Citrus pith, tangerine, mandarin. This could be the Mandarina Bavaria hops. I can control this by the length of my cold crash, when it happens. Comments: Krausen collapsed, still nice weaker aroma, normal progress. Will test SG again tomorrow, if no change I will bump temperature to 20.2C. Photo(s):

  11. Shamus knows his stuff! But if you go the right direction with the “grain” of the Chux ‘cloth’ you can just rip off a whole straight line with hands and don’t need to sanitise scissors!
  12. Who needs to record the hop schedule when you have a marketing/photography department that can take a photo like this!
  13. They sound great! But the colour green is already taken..... at least for Pale Ale.... lol How can we buy your beer!
