I'm concocting a strong beer at moment, it goes like htis:
Coopers Dark Ale Kit (or something like that -I threw awaya the can)
500g Extra dark spray malt
1Kd brewing sugar
i barreled it a few days ago.
I't not nearly as dark as I would have thought, actually a nice golden colour.
Tastes pretty god too, with a couple of caveats.
You can smell the booze off it. I don't know the percentage but I'm guesing 7 or 8
I swilled some around in mouth for a bit to see what it tasted like, I eneded up producing so much saliva that when I spat the ber out my mouth felt like it had been dessicated!
Having said that it was pretty damn good tasting!
I'm going to age it a god month or so and then i think it will be pretty good, as long as the drieness settles down, anyone got any ideas for that?
