Coopers: Brew A IPA stevonz November 23rd 2017

Good Drop - more like an American Ale

Brew A can

1kg BE2

50g Galaxy (dry hop)

 

Made up to 19L and fermented with yeast provided. Dry hopped after primary fermentation, cold crashed after 4 days & kegged.

After 1 week in the keg I was really suprised with the results.  A very nice hat I would call American Ale.

Definitely going onto permanent rotation in my kegerator!

Coopers: Thomas Coopers Devil's Half Ruby Porter Scotchpie October 4th 2017

Sessionable Autumn/Winter Beer

This is an excellent one can kit.  I made it in my usual way with a kilo of Muntons enhancer and 500g DME and also added 15g Chinook as a hop tea addition.  Fermenting was over in just five days (quickest I've had) and finished at 1.011.

The beer is wonderful. Two weeks from bottling and it has a nice sweet dark flavour that will only improve with age (if I allow it the time). The Chinook has also added a subtle pine flavour.  

Very impressed and will be buying again now the weather is turning colder. A nice sessionable autumn/winter beer.

Coopers: Thomas Coopers Devil's Half Ruby Porter The_Hard_Man September 21st 2017

Very impressed!

I'm a relatively recent starter in the homebrew stakes but the Coopers range has become a staple for me. I've been happy with every brew I've done - mostly Pale Ales, Lager and Draughts (and one Irish Stout). I'd never even heard of Porter before so I didn't know what to expect with this one. This is emminently drinkable and but still has depth of flavour. I batch primed this brew, carefully stirring in dissolved dextrose into the same fermenter, just before bottling. I was a bit concerned when the first bottle I opened (2 weeks later as directed by the label) was completely flat. Another 2 weeks on and all concerns were gone when I opened up very impressive bottle. 

 

Well done Coopers!

Coopers: Brew A IPA Hoppy September 14th 2017

Nice drop

Not a bad drop at all after 4 weeks in the bottle.

300g caramalt

250g light crystal

15g citra/mosaic/simcoe @ 10 mins

I would probably go more caramalt next time but it is tasting fabulous.
