At 9 weeks in the bottle, my Brew #6 Coopers Dark Ale can brew is going down very well! I added 500gms of dry dark malt to the can's recommended ingredients. Also the first brew where I bottled some into the Coopers glass bottles.

Great to see you are back in the Glass Bottles - good stuff - Wooohooo!  And the brew looks good and sounds good Sil!

This "Bizarre Brown Ale" is a crack at all malt and no kit base...  heading towards an Altbier... 16 days in the bottle it needs a bit more time... but as a cleansing refresher in the heat it is ok:

Happy New Year BT!  

Not that you would worry about it with kegging being such an efficient process... but can you knock some out some left-over brew into bottles to make room and keep some examples for the future?

Knocked the froth off a pale(ish) ale I bottled on boxing day, this arvo. 

Unhopped extract can with some crystal, hopped with cascade and Amarillo. 

First cold crash, Not a spec of sediment in sight. 

Cheers

When I started home brewing this time around, it was to get some tasty craft beers (compared to my uni era brewing where I just wanted cheap beer!) However, the thought remained about brewing a strong ale, but I wanted to do it properly, not just go Dexter with the Dextrose and end up with something little fat lamb style.

The Coopers Brew 'A' recipe took my fancy (Brew A) so I decided to give it a go. This was brew #9 for me. This one had a hop steep of EKG, and a dry hop of EKG. ABV came out at 7.2%. I didn't do the CCA yeast and couldn't find an S-33 yeast, so I used Mangrove Jack's M42 New World Strong Ale Yeast, and one of the APA can's yeast sachet. 

All up, two Aus Pale Ale cans, 1 liquid malt extract can, 50gms of EKG hops, and it's turned into a very nice drop. I tried it at 2 weeks, and it was all over the place. At 4 weeks, it's very very drinkable. 

The recipe page isn't kidding when it says these strong brews are not intended to be consumed as a session beer!

Got my moteuka pale ale on tap at the moment, will grab a picture later. It was on for new year's but didn't end up being emptied in the end so I'll probably get another couple of weeks out of it. Still got some bought stuff to get through as well.

It's a little bit early but i couldn't resist trying it. Should be great in another 6 months. So good now though.

Was to focused on doing a test run on the new kit that I forgot I had one of the beers I made for SWMBO in the freezer. Nothing like a beer slushie on a hot day. The beer thou .. kinda reminds me of a frothy or a furphy,as in I know there's hops there but they just arnt coming thru. Quite a enjoyable session beer thou.

Cheers Sil, was doing a cold run checking for leaks and confirming it's accuracy with temps. Tested at 3 different temps and all spot on. No dents or issues which I'm happy with since iv read of people's issues when shipped. All ready for brew day 2morrow!

The year has started off with my coopers session ale home brew.. the stouts in bottles fermenting.

Was a little disappointed in the session ale but I think its due to me learning I enjoy my IPA's more than anything

Behold lads!!

The Shiraz of beers!... the covenant ...

...Coopers Best Extra Stout!

6.8 % of sexy in your face roast and chocolate flavours with a subtle coffee finsh make an intensly black and intensly sexy brew!

 I brewed it back in june 2018 in some grolsh bottles, not exactly your typical summer quoff, but one or two from time to time is ..highly recommend!

Tonight I cracked the first of my version of Pacific Saison. Lots of in your face fruit, great carbonation, almost as dry as a champagne, and a good amount of funkyness so it’s almost winey..

And it’s only a couple of weeks in the bottle, so I’m keen to see how it ages.

Will be making this again for sure.
