  1. Kicking off this year's thread. Link to last year's is here. Simcoe Pale Ale. Based on a recipe from Aussie Brewmakers. Key details Batch Vol: 30 L (Made a concentrated 23 L batch and added 8 L of water) ABV: 4.9% (OG: 1.049 FG: 1.012) (Actual OG: 1.047) EBC: 12 IBU: 26 Acid Rest 55°C for 10 minutes Mash 67°C for about 75 minutes (stirred 3 times during the mash and added about 5 minutes to the mash duration for each time I stopped the recirc to stir) Recipe 5.8kg Pale Ale 300g Wheat Malt 150g Crystal Malt 150g Acidulated Malt 20g Simcoe 30 minute boil 20g Simcoe 15 minute boil 25g Simcoe 10 minute hopstand @77°C 55g Simcoe Dry hop 1 pkg Lallemand Voss Kveik yeast Giving the Voss Kveik a second go. Disappointed with it the first time around. The yeast packet was best before October last year. Still thought it was worthwhile. Pitched yeast around 2pm today. Fermenting at 32.5°C. Pressurised FV to 15psi from the get go. The photo is from about 7pm tonight. Going gang-busters. PS Happy New Year

  7. Hey Crew! I've been homebrewing with Coopers kits for about 2 years now, and I'm definitely still a novice even though I'm pretty proud with my 30 odd batches so far. Since I started homebrewing, I have managed to put on a few kegs, and I don't just mean on the kegerator I only use kits, no all grain brews, and I usually ferment in a 19L Junior KegKing fermenter, although I am thinking of investing in a Fermzilla allrounder, I just don't know how that's going to fit in the kegerator to cold crash with a few corny's. I've followed a lot of the community recipes here, and downloaded the Coopers Spreadsheet to follow along with too. My two attempts at Canadian blondes have been interesting, first one blew out to 6.4% using the coopers recipe - 2 x Brew Enhancer #2 and only 1x Yeast from the Canadian Blonde Can. Second attempt with the help of a friend was 1 x Canadian Blonde can and 500g Dextrose. Its not bad, but its no pure blonde. Forgot to take a FG reading before carbonating too, so no idea where it sits but we were aiming for 4.4% roughly. Our favourite house beer that I make usually every second brew is the Coopers Pacific Ale recipe, Hops - Melba & Galaxy and 1kg LDM, 2 x US05 Yeast. Any suggestions for a low calorie/low carb beer? I don't mind low ABV too, as I have a bad habit of blowing the ABV out to 6% far too often. Happy to add hops, have quite a few different varieties on hand. Look forward to your responses! Happy Brewing

  10. Thought I would start a thread for those of us that have some brewing stuff that is surplus to requirements, want to see if other community members have something to give away, sell, swap etc. or in need of something to do with brewing, if so post it up here. A wanted – swap – sell – giveaway thread where we can post what we have to giveaway, to sell or to swap and also if we are looking for something we may need and we think another member can help. It will be a purely non-commercial thread so no spruiking of businesses or products here please. I will start if off. Picked up a big order the other day and was given a bag of various yeasts as a bonus most of which I normally use so all good there. Now I can use everything in the bag except for two sachets of Philly Sour yeast – expiry date 02-2022. Now I will probably never use these at any time soon as I am not into sours let alone by the pack/s date. Now these two are free to anyone that wants them – I can post free of charge just so they don’t go to waste. PM me if you can make use of these and they will be on there way.

  15. Starting off @Otto Von Blotto's thread for 2021. This one is similar and somewhat inter-changeable with Brew Day!! Watcha Ya Got, Eh!? However, it is good for reporting progress during fermenting too. Link to last year's thread below: I currently have my version of the Coopers recipe Dass Alto waiting to be bottled and kegged later today. It's currently at 1°C. Also just finished putting down the Coopers Vintage Ale 2020. It is sitting in the laundry at 21-22°C waiting for me to deal with the Dass Alto, so the Vintage can be put in the fermenting freezer. Happy New Year everyone.

  17. Hi all Hoping someone can point me in the right direction with yeast. I know literally nothing about brewing, so I bought a few of the malt extract, specifically: Mr Beer Diablo IPA (diybeer.com) Mr Beer Long Play IPA (diybeer.com) Mr Beer North West Pale Ale (diybeer.com) Long story short, I've lost the yeast satchels for each and I'm hoping someone can shoot me a link to the right packets somewhere. Cheers
  18. Here it is as I promised some months ago. My hop tea injection tool to put hops into a keg of beer without opening it. Copyright and patents pending worldwide. Have you ever forgotten to do a dry hop or wished you had done a dry hop as your kegged beer just needed something more? Well, here is my simple tool to get a hop tea into your keg without having to open the lid and / or exposing your precious beer to the atmosphere. Using this device keeps the CO2 in the keg albeit at zero pressure and it can be done quickly before much of the CO comes out of solution and foaming up when it’s done with the keg very cold. You will need one of these marinade injectors from Bunnings $ 9.95 cost. The larger hypodermic that comes with it is exactly 5 mm OD so it slides straight into some 5 mm beer line so that’s a bonus. You will need a short length of 5 mm ID beer line and one SS hose or tube clamp $1.20 cost. You will need a grey ball lock disconnect either with barb $ 3.20 cost or one with a MFL tread and if so, you will also need a Duo tight 8 mm to MFL adapter to connect the line to it. So total cost between $14 - $18 all up and no risk to your beer unless you get the hops/amount wrong. First you need to make yourself an appropriate hop tea in your coffee plunger and let it steep for the required amount of time and temperature. Allow the hop tea to cool somewhat so you don't scold or burn your hands in the next stages. Next sanitize the tool by connecting the red plastic carbonation cap to the grey gas connector then dunk the red plastic carbonation cap into a tub of sanitizer then suck the syringe full to the brim. Leave the sanitizer in the syringe for a few minutes to do its good work. Give all outside parts of this tool a good spray with sanitizer as well. It is important that you disconnect any gas line to your chosen keg and make sure your keg is very cold. When the hop tea has cooled down enough to handle, decant it into a sanitized jug for ease of access. Burp your chosen keg and put the PRV keyring bit up into the up/open position temporarily. Squirt all the sanitizer out of the syringe back into your sanitizer tub and then drop the red plastic carbonation cap into your jug of hop tea and suck the syringe full of hop juices. Remove the red plastic carbonation cap from the grey ball lock disconnect and then connect the tools grey ball lock disconnect to the gas post on your keg and immediately squirt in the hop juices. Then quickly close the PRV keyring bit by putting it back into the normal down position. To inject more hop tea, reconnect the red plastic carbonation cap and suck more hop juices into the syringe and repeat the “burp and squirt” routine (5. - 7. )until all your hop tea has been injected. Once complete double-check the PRV is back down in the normal closed position, rock the keg around a little bit to disperse the hop tea through the beer and leave for a couple of days. Reconnect you gas line and bring it back up to your normal serving pressure. Enjoy a glass or two of your freshly hopped keg beer.

  22. G' Day, I am a complete beginner but did as much research prior to buying my Cooper's kits as I could. I have a dedicated fridge, temp controller with belt & all the bits & pieces including no rinse Sanitiser. 1st brew I went with was the Cerveza & BE3. Brewed at around 18c & had only minimum Krausen / foam. Started @ 1036 & Bottled at 1006 after only 9 days trying to get second brew over before Xmas. Have just put on a pale ale with BE2 & again I am not seeing any Krausen @ 21c. Started @ 1038 & 3 days in it is already 1010 or below. AM I doing something wrong? will leave this one for 2 weeks just in case. like any novice I am watching it like waiting for a chicken to hatch from an egg.
