How do you use coopers malt?

Recommended Posts

G'day @michealgewilson,

Yep. It's as easy as that. Can be a bit tricky to work with sometimes though. Clumpy and sticky.

Have a read here for some mixing tips.

 

Edit: I'm assuming you mean Light Dry Malt.

Others suggest

  1. Tip 500grams of Light Dry Malt (LDM) into the sanitised fermenter
  2. Add 1L of boiling water, straight from a kettle
  3. Fit fermenter lid
  4. Pick up fermenter and swirl for 15-30 seconds or however long it takes to dissolve as much of the LDM as possible.

I find this works reasonably well.  The Coopers LDM seems to be finer and harder to dissolve than some other LDM's.

Getting it all dissolved is important for reading an Original Gravity (OG).  However, the yeast will eventually get to all of it, even if it is in lumps.  So do not stress too much.
