After drinking flat beer for a few Weeks and having followed the suggestions I received from the many helpful people here..

My third brew.. Jumped out of the bottle and is very good

It's a MJ's Craft Series (No.13) Australian Pale Ale

In wort for 7 days, chucked the hops in on day 7, commando, bottled day 9.

Three weeks ageing, (the last week at 19-20 Deg) Thanks for the tip.

Hard to imagine where I'd be without the Help of the Members here.

Thank You All

That's the way it goes Dave, there is lot's of help available here, glad you got a good result.

Cheers

Phil

Looks lovely, nice rich colour. Most of mine look like that too. Well done and cheers

Temperature, sanitation and time are essential. As Journeyman said if you don't get these under control the rest of the added bits is like putting lipstick on a pig. 🍻

I am rather happy I am getting stocks down on this Mexican Lager, it is drinkable but very malty, dark & cloudy, towards the bottom of the bottle quite unpleasant, not to mention it really is a "bit" over carbed as you can see.

I much prefer my Pales, IPA's etc.

Cooper's Pale Ale, Two weeks in and it's just perfect.

Straight K&K

@DavidM Fine looking drink, I agree, Coopers Pale is very hard to beat, I normally start drinking mine after 2 weeks, mainly to try them but it is such a foolproof, great recipe you just keep carrying on - That's why I make so many of them. Cheers.

Thanks, Taste's great, I've always preferred Pale..

Am loving the learning curve but couldn't have done it so quick without the help from this forum.

All good, that is what this forum is all about, I know I would have the support of most on this topic as we all had to start somewhere.

If you can learn & pick up valuable tips/help & start producing beer that you enjoy drinking that is what it is all about. 

The main thing to remember is no question is stupid only there are sometimes stupid answers quoting our leaned friend @Aussiekraut  just stick to your instincts & pick up the tips that are revered by most.

Cheers.

Haha thanks Boozer 🙏

Yeah the problem was that I was getting severe P-n-R overload 😬

It's about getting the balance right and I am going on the wagon side of lean for now but hope to be back next Sunday : )

Tasting a Belgian Dubbel I bottled several months ago, with a lower amount of sugar for the bottle conditioning, so as not to end up with gushers. 
What a blinder! In many meanings of the word- it’s a 9 volter…

I’ve got 24 in a slab - only a 9 litre brew. 
What a beauty! Gives Chimay Blue and Westmalle Dubbel a run for its money. Pity I didn’t take notes re. BE etc. 
More than happy though

Hey Phil, love the pales and summer beers too, Coopers Pale is so good. I've just done the Eclipse Pale from the Coopers recipe page - have you tried that? It's now about 3 weeks in the bottle - can't wait for a nice warm day in Melbourne to try it out. Oh wait - I'm in Melbourne it's never warm here. 🍺😉 It smelt beautiful in the FV while fermenting.

Yeah they are the way to go, I have several different Pales happening ATM as I have 4 FV's & I just can't stop making them as well as IPA's et. My latest awaiting tasting is a Hairy Nanny Pale Ale ( Mountain Goat Pale Ale clone ) & I can't wait - Monday will be 14 days & I always include a couple of PET bottles for carb testing etc. I am yet to try the Eclipse Pale but I will.

Cheers.

Very nice. Takes a few months for the Belgians to shine but shine they do.
