Brewferm: Christmas bobthebrewer June 10th 2019

Christmas Ale

Nothing added to the kit, done according to instructions apart from bottling.  Fermented out fully to 1010 and then 4gr of priming sugar per litre  at bottling time.  No carbonation problems at 6 months, all is well.

First taster at 2 months ... horrible

Second taster at 6 months and everything has mellowed and it is bang on.  It's as good as it comes, results as good as anything you can buy in a supermarket. Interesting complex flavours, non-hop bitterness that reminds me of Chartreuse.  Definitely not a session beer. A sipper.

Definite five out of five, you can brew better than commercial quality beer from a kit, I am impressed.

Coopers: Coopers Real Ale pedro June 1st 2019

Not Bad

Brewed this with its sold yeast and dextrose. Brewed well, result good carbonation refreshing, inoffensive but fairly dull. Good for the money but the sort of beer that I lose interest with and not one you sit there and look forward to. Probably better with a Safale yeast

Coopers: Coopers Stout Fraincrua April 7th 2019

A great stout, says an Irishman

I'm a Guinness drinker when I'm out for a pint, at home here in Ireland, where it tastes better than anywhere else in the world (us Irish are great at travelling, but Guinness is not!) But I am more than happy to put Arthurs brew aside for my Coopers stout.  This is not a stout of the same style as the famous G, but a stout so good it's worthy of mention beside it. This is my first go at this kit and I made with 1kg BKE, 500g dark DME, 200g Golden Syurp to 23l, primmed in King Keg with 150g Golden Syurp. At 4 weeks kegged tastes just fantastic, a really easy drinker. It has all the flavours you want in a stout but without being very heavy. I have done the Coopers Irish stout a couple of times before, not sure as yet which I prefair. I have another C's Irish in second keg conditioning now, will be able to do straight comp in a few weeks (if any of this stuff is still left!) Will be doing another brew of this right away! Oh, and I took readings, didn't write them down and forget them now, so not sure how the ABV worked out, but using the recipe above it has a right kick, must be a good 5% plus????
