Coopers: Bootmaker Pale Ale Aaron August 11th 2017

awesome Pale Ale

It's quite unfair to rate this beer as its only been in the bottle for 2 weeks but I needed to see how it was going.

I made this one to 19L with 1x KG LDM, 1x 250 g Carapils grain pack and 13 g Amarillo hops boiled for 10 mins.

I ditched the kit yeast and added Safale US-05 instead as suggested by brew shop staff.

Brewed at constant 20C.

This one turned out a little less bitter than expected but great body and nice crisp finish.

Lovely citrusy grapefruit, toffee, pine  after taste. Well balanced and already a real pleasure to drink. 

Definitely be doing this one again and perhaps pimp up with some more hops but I think it's probably close to exactly how I like it now.

After a month I'll get a better idea what to do for the next one. 

Definately recommend.

Mangrove Jacks: Mangrove Jack's Czech Pilsner Cesur August 4th 2017

Really good Pilsner

Steeped 100g of Carapils for 30 minutes, dissolved 1kg of pilsner enhancer then the tin of MJ CZ Pilsner and 100g or maltodextrin. Into fermenter to 24L and Saflager 34/70 yeast. Fermented for 3 weeks at 13 degrees. 

4 weeks in bottle before sampling, the beer is nice and crisp with a dry finish. Nice nice and malty, with a lingering bitterness. Some quite fruity notes too. I am no beer expert, but this tastes better than any commercial Pilsner I've brought recently. Will definitely make this one again. 

Coopers: Coopers Australian Pale Ale Cesur August 4th 2017

Better than expected

After making a few fancy brews I decided to make this one as cheaply as possible. 1.7kg tin of Coopers Aussie Pale Ale + 1kg of dextrose to 23.5l with kit yeast. Fermented at 22 degrees for 7 days then bottled. 

I was not expecting much, but after 3 weeks in the bottle I opened one. I was pleasantly susprised, it is very drinkable with no "twang" like I expected. As it gets old it jut gets better. 

Will definitely make it again.

Coopers: Coopers European Lager Cesur August 4th 2017

Awesome!!! New Favourite!

I made this with a 1kg Mangrove Jacks Lager enhancer and Saflager 34/70 yeast. 

Fermented at 13 degrees for 3 weeks. 

3 weeks in bottle before first sampling. It was very good even at only 3 weeks. 

I let it sit for a few more weeks before trying another and it was incredible. Move over Heineken!!! 

Highly reccomended.
