  1. Hello! I am still fairly new to homebrewing have made about 10 23L batches of extract and all grain of varying styles and now want to make a sour beer. The process I am thinking is: **INGREDIENTS:** * Coopers Brewing Extract Real Ale * 11g Wildbrew Philly Sour * 1kg Coopers Brew Enhancer 2 * 500g Coopers Brew Enhancer 3 * 1.5kg Frozen Cherries * 50g Citra Hops * 25g Cascade Hops * Lactic Acid / Phosphoric Acid **METHOD** 1. Empty brewing extract into fermenter with both brew enhancers, fill with water to 23L, add the Philly Sour 2. After 2 days, add the 1.5KG of frozen cherries 3. Leave to ferment for 2 weeks and check that gravity has stabilised 4. Test pH and add lactic acid or phosphoric acid to drop the pH to between 3.2-3.8 to sour the beer to taste. 5. Bottle with 2 carbonation drops per 750ml bottle and leave to age for at least another 2 weeks. 6. Chill, crack one open and enjoy the cherry sourness If anyone has any tips or advice or notices where I may go wrong then please let me know!
  2. Reasonably new to this done a bit of brewing on and off over the years however results are fairly hot and cold. About to brew from the lager can and just after some tips and tricks on how to make sure it’s of good quality thinking of chucking in some limes diced up during primary fermentation anyone have any suggestions or anything extra I can do to make it a more enjoyable and less basic. cheers

  5. I have the DIY coopers brew kit and in the instructions it just says "stir using the spoon" for the brew can + brew enhancer but after 3 days realizing the brew was still very light in colour and everything still sitting at the bottom so i decided to mix it in properly Its been 2 days after that now and during the whole process around its been around 20C-24C and it still looks ok, the foam seems to be less thick after day 2 Im guessing the brew is still good but will just take a extra 3 days?

  8. hi, i have just started brewing home brews, i have done a coopers lager but didnt use the brew enhancer so i wasnt all that impressed with the taste. A mate of mine said to use half a kilo of liquid malt and half a kilo of dextrose to give the beer more body. Do i also still add sugar as well and do i add extra yeast to the mix, the brew im about to do is a coopers draught. By what i have read i need to boil the liquid malt to sanitize it, is this correct? Any tips i can get would be very grateful for, im gonna go and watch some youtube to learn how to use the hydrometer, thanks in advance for all and any help
  9. Hi, I'm new to brewing and have just mixed up my first batch using the Brew Kit. My brew was at 22-24 degrees when mixed and left to ferment but unfortunately we had a very cold snap and the temperature fell to about 14 degrees overnight - the brew is currently less that 24hrs into the process. Will this impact the brew and should I keep going and try and maintain the temperature at 21-24 degrees for the rest of the process ? Cheers jmursyd

  12. Hi, I'm new to the Cooper's DIY brew kits, and accidentally purchased a 1.7kg Irish Stout can designed to make 23L, and I only have an 8.5L fermenter. Could I still use it but in a lesser quantity like 630g (i.e., 1.7/(23/8.5))? If I can, how long can I store the remaining extract for? Thanks in advance
  13. Hi all I'm considering starting up an online shop and wanted to ask if anyone could give me some information on how to order Coopers Beer Kits at Wholesale price. I am also considering Drop Shipping methods as well. Any help would be very much appreciated. Cheers Rob :-)

    First Brew

    Hi All, Making my first brew, standard Coopers DIY kit, Coopers Larger Brew Can and Enhancer 1. Been looking around forum and already discovered great tips. warm wort to help with ease of adding, use hot water to mix enhancer and wort. Anyway, getting there. First question. Day 3, remove Krausen Kollar. Brew has been steady temp, closer to 20-21 than intended 21-22. Not very frothy - is it working? Appreciate any feedback PS SHould I really use one glucose tab and one lump of normal white sugar for better result when i first bottle?
  21. G'day Fellow brewers Just wanted to ask a couple of questions, thanks in advance for passing on your knowledge. Firstly, I was thinking about how diligent I am with sanitizing (i have been using Sodium Metabisulphite) and i was wondering why nothing is ever said about the tap. What i mean by that is, there is beer left in there when I take samples to check the gravity readings, so whats the chances of it infecting my brews when I'm bottling? What does everyone think of the Coopers PET bottles? or are glass better? Cheers Bateo
  22. Hey Guys. I start brewing the lager from the home brew kit. The temperature started at 20 but slowing dropped down to 16 and it's been like that past 2days, is that okay?. Or should I keep it few days more to get the temperature Up to 20' +
  23. Heya all... Im looking at brewing my first batch as got the kit for fathers day. Plan on starting off easy with just making the plain lager thats supplied. It says everything required is in the box but just cant get my head around it. Do I just add the can with the enhancer 1?? Instructions dont say anything about using the supplied carbonation drops but does refer to using yeast which isnt supplied. Nothing worse than a brew virgin I know but any help is appreciated. Cheers

  25. Hey guys, been away for a while but just wanted to share my journey! Going from my first Coopers Stout extract that I brewed back in May I ended up moving onto BIAB using a Costco 22L stove pot. This weekend it will be time to finally kick off a Sierra Pale Ale Clone (Brewfather) with my Brewzilla! Cannot wait! Just wanted to say thanks to everyone that has been awesome on these forums!
