  3. Hi. newbie question, sorry. first time brewing a coopers kit and I intend bottling.... is there a resource anywhere that allows me to download and print labels for Coopers Canadian Blonde?
  4. I have purchased a craft brew kit after doing the standard brew kit for over 4 years. I got 4 different brews, Diablo, Harvest, Long Play and Bewitched, which are all types of pale ales and amber ales. I followed the video and just added mixture and water. All are very dark in colour, more like a stout, when made and none taste that great. How do I make them lighter and hopefully taste a bit better.
  5. 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

  7. Can any one provide information on this one YEAST R3549 - Coopers Yeast Codes.pdf doesn't appear in standard list. Craft Brew Kit - MR Beer - Diablo IPA List indicates it should be R3426?
  8. Hi all, I'm fairly green to Home Brew and have made a few attempts with the Mr. Beer cans with minor success. I was hoping I could find a recipe for an alcoholic Ginger Beer to suit the 8.5L Craft Series kit. I did my best to search the rest of the forum but all the recipes I found were for bigger batches. I assume it's a matter of adjusting the ratios to suit my kit but I didn't want the chance of over flowing or exploding the brew. My partner doesn't drink beer and I want to try get her excited about the process of making something from scratch (and to let me keep buying new ingredients to experiment with ) Thanks in advance..
  9. Atlantis Amber Ale - February 2021 Craft Recipe of the Month in pdf format for those outside of Australia to be able to see the recipe in perpetuity. Atlantis Amber Ale.pdf
  10. Goodafternoon and thanks for reading my post! As many here I have had the dream to make own beer for a very long time. So when I was in a local beer store and saw the Coopers craft brew kit 8.5L I couldn't let it go. This is my first experiment to brewing my own beer. The first 3 days looked very good with a nice foamy top and steady tempetures. But when day 4 came around I think it all went south. I noticed almost all the foam was gone and a wierd coloured layer(somewhat blue) formed on top. Also the beer was kind of clear at first but then it turned cloudy. See pictures down below. Is this normal or is this brew done for? If so does anyone know what I did wrong and how I can make sure it doesn't happen again?

  12. Hi there. I'm an experienced craft beer drinker and took the leap into brewing my own late last year. I love a hoppy beer (think Kaiju!, 3 Ravens Juicy, Black Hops Hornet, Boatrocker Nexus etc). I've done 6 brews now in my amazing little Coopers Craft Kit and have been very impressed by the quality of each of them. However, I have been a little disappointed in the hoppiness, or should I say, lack of hoppiness, of some of the IPAs I've done. The malts comes through big time (which is no surprise given the amount that goes in from the 1.3kg tin and the 250g pouch in most recipes) but even when I've upped the amount of hops in both the boil and also added a dry hop addition for 4-5 days in either a muslin bag or giant tea strainer, the big hop aroma and flavour is just lacking. So far I've done the Batman & Robin IPA and I double dryhopped versus the single dryhop from the recipe, the Pavlova Pale Ale (I added some hops to the boil) and the Great Lakes IPA (doubled the amount of dryhopped amount). Each time I get the bitterness but not the fruitiness I was expecting. Is the min. 2 weeks bottle conditioning killing off any hop aromas and flavours and with homebrewing, is there anyway around this? After doing some reading I am thinking of going commando with the dryhopping, and then filtering into bottling bucket...does anyone out there think this will help, or should I just keep on doing what I'm doing but increasing the amount of hops. Any advice would be most gratefully received....thanks all!

  16. Has anyone made any adjustments to the hefe wheat at all ? Ive just kegged my first batch it looks and tastes good but only 3.9% . I'd like to get it to around 5.5% while still keeping it tasting like a wheat beer. Any tips or thoughts would be great ?
  17. Hey there! Ive been brewing for a while, just using basic Mr Beer Extracts with Coopers Craft beer fermenter (8.5 l). Ive decided to test my hand at more complex brews, and in turn I am currently fermenting the Pumpkin Rising Recipe. After the first initial brew ( and sanitising everything as per usual), it has been sitting in the fermenter. As of last Friday ( I waited 4 days), I cooked and placed the pumpkin puree into the fermenter. Previously, the yeast had been quite active but since I placed the puree in the yeast has become considerably less active ( as per my photo you can see the line from where the yeast it to where it is now). I also use a temp controller and have had it at 20 degrees celsius the whole time. Is it normal for the yeast to calm down after putting in the puree? I understand this is my first time doing the pumpkin rising recipe, but it would be great to have any guidance, ideas etc. of how to absolutely nail this style. Big pumpkin fan here. Want to make something drinkable !

  25. G'day. I'm not new to homebrewing, but have come back to it after an absence of three years. Decided downsize, so have invested in the 8.5 litre Craft Brew kit and associated extract products. My only issue is round keeping the brew at a stable temperature. I'm thinking an Inkbird ITC-308, controlling a heat belt. However, I can't find the power consumption of the Inkbird unit. This is important as I live off-grid in the highlands of Tasmania, and at this time of the year I'm on battery power up to 16 hours a day. Iv'e searched the forums but can't find any info. Neither Inkbird or eBay sellers have been able to provide me with consumption (usually in watts). Anyone out there with the knowledge?
