Boosting ABV on a Canadian Blonde!

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi, i'm going to be making a coopers canadian blonde as my next brew, i would like to get the ABV between 5-6%!

my plan is using 1kg brew enhancer 1 & 500g light dry malt, is this a good mix? and will i achieve my desired ABV this way? i figured i would get nice body and a better beer this way, than using all out dextrose?

i will be using US-05 yeast instead of the kit stuff.

open to any suggestions or advice 🙂

thanks

Try 1kg light dry malt and 500g dextrose. Should bump it up above 5% bottled (remember priming sugar contributes about 0.4% ABV) and it should taste better than using 1kg of BE1. Ferment it around 18 degrees and you should get a nice easy drinker.

1+ what Otto said. 

You might want to try dry hopping it with a tea bag of Cascades pellets. 

Cheers,
