two can compatability

Recommended Posts

I have 2 cans in my pantry, a draught and a dark ale. Is it possible to make a two-can mix with these or are there clashing ingredients which may not work well together? This would be my first attempt at this so don't want to start off with a dud.

thanks

It would be similar to the SMOTY ale, except that one uses a pale ale kit instead of the draught. Only difference would be a little more bitterness from the draught kit. Given time it would mellow though, or you could make it slightly bigger at 24-25 litres to dilute the bitterness a bit.

thanks OVB, that was the one recipe I had been looking at but wasn't too sure of compatability.

thanks for your reply.

This topic has given me some inspiration.

Since the Woolworths Sales I have lots of Coopers cans.  I wondered what other Coopers cans are compatible in a two can mix.  I will have to check out the recipe lists or do some searches on the forum.  Does anybody already have a list of combo's that have worked?

Quite a few of the recipes use Amber Malt Extract along with one of the Coopers cans.  What would happen if I swapped out the Amber Malt Extract for a can of Family Secret Amber Ale.  Would the bitterness blow my head off?

I loved the Bootmaker Pale Ale and I loved the Family Secret Amber Ale.  How would they go together?

Cheers Shamus
