Default Batch 7 Journal

Brewed a batch of Cooper's English Bitter kit while making supper.

1 can Cooper's English Bitter
1 KG Munton's Beer Enhancer
23L water
about 1.5 cups of recycled Notty slurry, warmed to 68*
pitched yeast into 70* or so wort

Water level is a guess, was very foamy. I stopped the water at 21L, but the foam was up to about the 28L mark on my bucket. OG was 1.039-40 or so. Smelled great, sample was drinkable, tasted the bitter quite nicely.

Finally bottled today, with 3/4 cup corn sugar for priming. Finished out at 1.010-1.011 or so.

Gentle God. This is delicious. Cracked one a couple weeks ago and it was "meh". Just cracked one tonight and I'm ready to make it again. Wow.

Hi L,

I am enjoying the fruits of my labours using the English Bitter can.

This one was an attempt a a Wells Bombardier. I don't know how close I got to matching but its good none the less.


Well Landing English Ale

1.7Kg (3.3lbs) Cooper's E. Bitter
500g (1.1lbs) DME (light)
274g (.6 lbs) Crystal 40L
150g (.33lbs) Carapils
200g (.37lbs) Dextrose
15g (.5 oz) Challager (20mins)
12g (.4 oz) Challanger (15mins)
10g (.3 oz) EKG (F-out)
15g (.5oz) EKG (Dryhop)
11.5g S-04
23L (5.5 gallons) Water


This one has gone through many changes over the last few batchs. I think I like this one.
B.S.A Bitter

1.7Kg (3.3lbs) Coop's E. Bitter
566g (1.2lbs) LME Amber
200g (.4lbs) Molasses
150g (.33lbs) Carapils
150g (.33lbs) Pale Chocolate Malt
50g (.1lbs) Poasted Barley
12g (.4oz) Northernbrewer's (15mins)

5g (.15oz) N. Brewer's (5mins, F-out)
5g (.15oz) EKG (5mins, F-out)
11g Notto

Give either or both a go. You won't be disappointed.
