Post Coopers European Larger
For a bit of fun this evening I mixed up a coopers European larger with 1 kg of brew enhancer No2 (that makes light dry malt sound so boring ;)

and when I was boiling it up i thought id trow in some honey as well. Only had about 200g left in the jar (plain old Aldi honey) so that went in the mix. (think 500g would have been better )

Its now all locked down in the fermenter OG of 1.040 lets see how it turns out.

The Brew when Im stiring it and it starts bubbling I feel like I should be saying some kind of incantation ;)

This beer will be great! Ive done this same batch a few times now and its awesome.

A friend of mine, another member "tom" Created a honey beer last year. Was beautiful, nothing like what they market on the shelves today, every now and then you got a kick or a little subtle taste of the honey. Not sure of the recipe but if he sees this maybe he could share?

I was thinking of creating a batch from scratch but trying to substitute some of the malt for honey. Im not sure how to make it work as the sweetness in honey and the malt is quite different. Maybe ill just give it a go and see how it turns out!

Cool,

Just give it a go!!

You could use the honey in place of the brew enhancer/sugar.

Ive done a few brews where Ive used 1/2 kg of liquid malt and 1/2 kg of light dry malt inplace of sugar.

Happy Brewing

Bernie

well tried some the other day came up OK but no hint of the honey that I was expecting - need to add much more maybe 1Kg would increase the alcohol content as well.

Post Re: Coopers Pale Ale
Well just put on another Vat? of Beer. This Time a coopers Pale Ale with 3/4 cup of Lemon juice (was supposed to be a cup but my 4th Lemon was bad :( )

O.G 1.038

The taste test before adding the yeast gave a slight hint of the lemon bitterness though it was over powered by the Hops and the sweetness of the brewing sugar :( maybe when the sugar ferments out it will gove more room for the lemon to come through.

The brew shop at Calwell sold off a heap of life expired stock for $5 a can - so I going wild. Bottled two batches last weekend - 1 Munich Lager, and another of Coopers Cerveza. Now got another two on the go - a Munton's Pilsener and another Munich lager!!

However, still drinking stout I made back in April (3 batches) - Blackrock Miners Stout with added malt and instant coffee. On one batch, instead of the coffee, I primed the bottles with black jelly babies - gives a fabulous extra lift to the flavour of the beer. Highly recommended.

I went for a trip out the Brew Your Own at Home in Kambah with a friend yesterday to scope out how much it would cost to start getting into full grain brews. Hopefully we'll be able to start small scale soon!

Sounds like your stocking up well for summer!!

Ill be down that way on saturday Ill have to see if they have anything left Robbo.

A mate of mine in canberra used to do the black jelly beans and loved the result - For some reason I never got to sample it :(

Good on ya slim Ive considerd doing the All grain thing but just never get around to it - its just too easy to buy a kit :D
