    Infections with Krausen Collar.

    From your pics, the brews look quite normal. Perhaps it would be worth your while to shoot through an email to: customerservice@coopers.com.au Side note - been fermenting with the new Coopers DIY Beer FV since 2009 (it was released for sale in 2010 ) and not one infected beer. That said, if you can't be confident with the equipment you are using, change it.

    Coopers Malt Extract Cans - Age

    Yep, packaged on the 22nd day of 2014. Because it's very dark and high in flavour when it's made, it should be okay for a brew - assuming the can is not bulging. Liquid Malt Extract changes over time (colours up and develops cloying, what I recognise as "stewed prune" aromas) and this process is accelerated with temperature. Longevity is best when stored at temps below 15C.

    Hey Brian, Unusual for the yeast not to work. What type of fermenting vessel do you use? Does it have an airlock? Did you check the SG?

    James, you are on the money. From our FAQs: 7. Each of your recipes has a difficulty rating of Easy, Intermediate, Advanced or Expert. How do I know what each rating involves?

    moving fermentor

    We suggest this up front because many people don't realise that they may need to locate the FV in a different position for bottling and then struggle with the weight of the FV once it contains the brew. Injury to self can happen! Also, the brew can be stirred up a bit if the FV is not moved in a careful (slow and gentle) manner.
