Cooper Ale review

Found a kit in the garage which was 4 years past its best before date.  Took up a challenge to make a palatable.


1 x coopers real ale kit, 500g Amber malt (DRY), 300g dextrose, 500ml honey, 300g Crystal grain (Steeped) , 300g oats (Mashed), 20g SAAZ hops (Steeped), 20g cascade dry hopped), M44 mangrove jacks yeast. Added water to make 23l

Fermented in the primary for 10 days.  Bulked primed with dextrose.  Bottled conditioned for 4 weeks.

Very good result and was surprised the flavour of the hops very pronounced.  already have another one of these down as all of my freind prefered this over the 10 batches i have the beer fridge.

A New Favourite

Light tasting with a hint of bitterness like a Pale Ale...love it!

Added 500gms of LDME along with 750gms of Dextrose and made 20L (I think).  Added additional 1/2 pack of US-05 yeast and a small amount of Heading Powder. Brewed at 24C for a day then reduced to 17C for the remaining 3 weeks.  Racked straight from Primary to Keg and chilled with carbonation for 2 weeks. Came out to aprox 5.7% alcohol.  The head was a little more than I would have liked so I will definately stay away from the Heading Powder next time.
