@DavidMYour Coopers Real Ale looks quite dark compared to a Pale Ale. Does your brew have lots of additions in it? I have recently bottled a batch of Coopers Real Ale with just the Coopers tin of extract and BE no.2 It won't be ready until 4th July! I can hardly wait to taste it. Unfortunately I have run out of my Pale Ale to compare LOL. 

Yes the Real Ale is quite dark compared to a Pale.

This one had: 1 kilo Light Dry Malt, 300g Carapils steeped for 30 min. 250g Dextrose and 30g Saphir Hops.

I like the Real Ale and do it regularly with little variations.

Your Tin and BE2 will be just fine. 🙂

Just having a Stout as we do on a cold Winter's day, I just had a haircut so it's extra chilly.

I served one up to a mate last night & he thought it was an actual Coopers Stout  - I too am amazed you close can actually get to the commercial recipe.

Some user-photos in these forums are real pin-up material, aren't they...

Fit for posters

Billboards

Blimps, Hot Air Balloons and the like

...no I got carried away,..

But definitely some photos would make great posters

 

 

EDIT:

Bah!

My own pic didn't even upload! I set up a whole visual gag there holding my glass up in front of a balloon and it totally FAILED 🙈

I agree, technology these days allows you to blow up images with awesome resolution which means it allows larger blowups & prints.

Haven’t done a recipe of the month for ages but picked ups the Heritage Red Ale kit a while back. First try out of the keg today, naturally carbonated in the keg. Discussion here was that it’s better than the original.

LagerAle Middy Mach 3 - please note this is only 8 days in the bottle but... well you know

This one was different by using BE3 - I like this one best for taste and mouthfeel. At 3.8% it is not quite low enough but so far this LagerAle "Middy" is is best to actually drink. So this one is the "Middy" so far to play with then.

Other iterations used BE2 in one and LDM in the other

First bottle of a Duvel AG clone, two weeks in the bottle. A damn sight darker than when I took a gravity sample just before bottling. That really disappoints me as the whole point of this beer is its crisp, light-coloured freshness. Too malty as well. 
I wonder if the addition of the Fermentis F2 yeast for the bottle conditioning could have darkened it, but I don’t know where the extra maltiness came from. Bloody annoying! I had much better luck kegging it. Maybe this’ll be a brew only to keg, and not piss around with bottle conditioning. I’d better get to like it, there’s another 65 stubbies to go…

Australian XPA 4.8%

Using a Voss kveik yeast I've been reusing for 1.5 years now . Dry hopped with 100g centennial and  50g mosaic, hazy as a mofo squeezed that hopsock right on out

Lots of tiny bubbles and a creamy head not like pub larger or soft drink

It does look a bit like yesterday's Aussie Larger but this is a very different beast... the K2 Kölsch w Lally K dry yeast... 

a bit more of a 'Cleaner' taste -- less Funky than K1 as it was dumped over the K1 Yeast Cake and run at slightly cooler temps...

Clearing up nicely in the keg yumbo 🥳

Lot's:

First is a Real Ale, just lovely..

Opened the wrong bottle.

Next is My first wheat beer, after trying @Classic Brewing Co one day I had to have a go.

No where near as good as Classic Phil's but I'm very happy with the results.

Galaxy Pale Ale with Wheat Malt. It's good..
