Coopers Pale Ale (23 Litres)

Coopers Australian Pale Ale is formulated to produce a beer as close as possible to their commercial Coopers Original Pale Ale.

Ingredients

  • Australian Pale Ale
  • Brew Enhancer 2 (or 500g Light Dry Malt + 250g Dextrose)
  • Coopers Carbonation Drops 
 

STEP  1: Mix

Place dry ingredients into a drained fermenter and add 2 litres of hot water.

Pick the fermenter up immediately and swirl the contents until dissolved - 30 secs.

Empty the contents of the can and dissolve.

Top up with cold water to the 23 litre mark.

Sprinkle the kit yeast or stir in the commercial yeast culture then fit the lid.

Look in our DIY FAQS for a guide on growing our commercial yeast.

 

STEP 2: Brew

Ale yeast strains are generally the most reliable, fermenting quickly and effectively.

The yeast supplied with this kit will give good results while fermenting with the commercial yeast culture will result in a beer even closer to intended style!

Although Ale yeast can ferment at very high temperatures (as high as 40C), the closer the brew is to 21C the cleaner the flavour and aroma.

 

STEP 3: Bottle

We recommend the use of PET bottles or reusable glass bottles designed for storing beer.

For information about kegging see the FAQ section.

Bottles need to be primed so that secondary fermentation (producing the gas in the bottle) can take place

Priming

Add carbonation drops at the rate of 1 per 330ml/375ml bottle and 2 per 740ml/750ml bottle.

Sugar or dextrose may be used at the rate of 8g per litre (approximately 6g of sugar to a level metric teaspoon). Store the bottles out of direct sunlight at 18C or above for at least 1 week while secondary fermentation occurs.

Your beer can be consumed after 2 weeks. Bottles may be stored (conditioned) for long periods of time (3 months or more). Conditioning should improve flavour, reduce the size of the bubbles and make the yeast sediment more compacted.

 

STEP 4: Enjoy!

While we recommend leaving your bottles to condition at or above 18C for at least 2 weeks - you may find that your brew benefits from further conditioning.

This brew is intended to be served cloudy and normally has less carbonation than Lagers - mix the yeast evenly through the beer prior to serving in a clean glass.

Coopers Dark Ale (23 Litres)

This brew displays coffee and chocolate aromas with a soft bitterness. You may like to reduce the carbonation level and serve it slightly warmer. Coopers reckon this recipe is a fairly close approximation to their commercial Dark Ale, particularly if fermented at 18C using the commercial yeast culture.

 

Ingredients

  • 7kg Australian Pale Ale
  • 750g Thomas Coopers Dark Malt Extract (half the can)
  • 200g Sugar
  • Coopers Carbonation drops 
  • Colour: Brown
  • Body: Medium
  • Bitterness: Medium
  • Alcohol Level: 4.5% ABV
  • Naturally Carbonated: Natural

 

STEP 1: Mix

 

Dissolve Australian Pale Ale, Dark Malt Extract and sugar in 2 litres of hot water.

Fill fermenter with cool water to the 23 litre mark and stir.

Sprinkle the kit yeast or stir in the commercial yeast culture then fit the lid.

Look in their DIY FAQS for a guide on growing their commercial yeast.

 

 

STEP 2: Brew

Ferment temperature should be as close to 18C as possible.

Ale yeast strains are generally the most reliable, fermenting quickly and effectively.

Ale yeast is supplied with most beer kits. Although Ale yeast can ferment at very high temperatures (as high as 40C), the closer the brew is to 18C the cleaner the flavour and aroma.

 

 

STEP 3: Bottle

Bottle when specific gravity has reached 1.008 (or two readings the same over 24 hours). Coopers recommend the use of PET bottles or reusable glass bottles designed for storing beer.

For information about kegging see the FAQ section.

Bottles need to be primed so that secondary fermentation (producing the gas in the bottle) can take place.

Priming

Add carbonation drops at the rate of 1 per 330ml/375ml bottle and 2 per 740ml/750ml bottle. Sugar or dextrose may be used at the rate of 8g per litre (approximately 6g of sugar to a level metric teaspoon).

Store the bottles out of direct sunlight at 18C or above for at least 1 week while secondary fermentation occurs. Your beer can be consumed after 2 weeks.

STEP 4: Enjoy!

While Coopers recommend leaving your bottles to condition at or above 18C for at least 2 weeks - you may find that your brew benefits from further conditioning.

Ales may be served cloudy or bright into a clean glass - depending on the style - and normally have less carbonation than Lagers.
