Hi all, still new to brewing or rather back after a long absence!! now brewed 3 coopers kits 2 with speciality grains, 1 extract with speciality grains and 2 partial mash.... been pretty happy with the results so far the only thing I seem to be struggling with is getting enough of a strong malty taste for certain styles...... have heard that mashing at a little higher temp may help that.... Anyway I just wanted to share my next brew that will go down on Sunday and see what some of you more experienced guys think and if you have any tips sorry its all decimal!!!!
