  1. 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.

  3. 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..
  4. Hi guys - brewing my first brew with Coopers Pale Ale. Followed all the instructions etc. I've only deviated by buying a heat belt half way through and addit it - first five days was 18C then the last has been 24C. It's been 8 days since first brew and for two days the gravity reading is a steady 1.006. I'm sort of a 'follow the instructions' sort of chap but I note that the pale ale instructions don't indicate a final gravity readin to go by. A lot of other recipes do. So...... should I bottle now at FG 1.006 or is this not a good range for it to be in - e.g. have I stuffed it up etc? Happy for comments guys as I couldn't find a thread on this FG reading for pale ale (happy to be pointed in the right direction.) Terry

  6. So it's day 7 of my first DIY lager kit it sat in the corner showing a steady 24°c first hydro test was 40.1 yesterday and today showed 10 if it stays at 10 tomorrow is it ready for bottling? And also isn't that only about 4% alc ? I added a small tub of honey to the brew. For a little extra punch. I'm from NZ where our beers are a little stronger than Aus beers. If I had not added the honey it would have been a very weak beer? Or did you he honey screw up something lol cheers guys and gals
  7. Does anyone use the Westinghouse bar fridge, WRM1400WD with the 23L DIY Kit, I'm struggling to keep the brew at temp but want to know if the setup will fit inside this fridge before I buy one as it seems to still have the compressor section at the bottom Cheers

  11. Hi I received a Coopers home brew kit for Fathers Day and enjoyed the process of brewing this with my son, we followed the instructions and video to the letter, our beer tastes ok although with a slight aftertaste, sort of molasses however this is not my issue When I pour the beer I manage to get a head with a bit of aggressive pouring but the head quickly disappears and the beer is quite flat I checked and cleaned my glasses well (bi carb mix) but this has not helped Does any one have any clues to revive this brew

  19. Hey folks, I'm gearing up for my second all grain brew, and I've tried to craft my own recipe. Would anyone be so kind as to offer some pointers? English Style Brown Ale (BIAB) 4.5 kgs Ireks Pale Malt (85.7%) .25 kgs Crystal 60 (4.7%) .25 kgs Biscuit (4.7%) .25 kgs Chocolate (4.7 %) Willamette hops: 28 g @ 60 mins Golding hops: 28 grams @ 15 mins Yeast: White Labs English Ale Yeast ***I'm aiming at bottling 19 litres worth of beer at over 5% ABV ***I suspect that .25 kgs of Chocolate Malt might be excessive... ***A dark amber colour with a slightly nutty flavour and not hoppy is my goal. Thanks in advance!
  20. Hi Guys, I am about to venture to the dark side and start kegging my beer. I am looking for advice on a quality supplier. I have looked at iKegger, Keg Land and Keg King and whilst there is a bit of variation in price they all seem to be pretty good and whilst they should all do the job I'm not sure who has the better quality products. I don't want to invest in some gear and find out in 12 months that it's falling apart. At the moment I am looking at a mini keg package with 10L kegs. Any thoughts/experience would be most welcome.

  22. I just wanted to make a comment about the Thomas Coopers Bootmaker's Pale Ale kit. When the new range was released I eagerly looked at this kit as the first I wished to brew, & have subsequently brewed a number of the Thomas Coopers range. This was the only one I was disappointed in of the kits I've tried so far. I'm only disappointed because of the extra price tag above the other ranges. For the style it appears to be aimed at I feel it falls short as a base kit. I would much prefer to see something like a Centennial/Simcoe mix other than the current Cascade/Styrian Golding combo that makes up the current hop mix. This particular range of kits should be fully loaded at their current price point where no extra hops/grains should be required & still produce a high quality beer in the styles they are aimed at. This kit is not quite up to the mark IMHO. I wish it was. I don't mean any offence. Just my 2 cents. Cheers, Lusty.
  23. Hi, new to brewing at home after designing beer bottles for ACI for many years. Brewing my second brew, Sparkling Amber ale, First having trouble with the hydrometer, showing 0.996 in water at 20 degrees C, think I worked that out. Second, the batch is very cloudy, meant to be? My first brew, using the basic Brew Kit also turned out hazy. Any help and advice would be most welcome Don
  24. 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 ?
  25. Hey team, has anyone worked out the calories left in a coopers homebrew pale ale using brew kit two with a 23 liter brew? thanks in advance
