Posted in thread: Anyone brew a coopers lager with brown sugar? on 02-20-2017 at 11:02 PM
No., I haven't. You'll get some molasses flavor, which I personally wouldn't want for a pale
beer. But I'm not drinking it.ADD: for a more supportive

Someone has undoubtedly told him or he has read about efficiency. While we all agree this is
not a number to chase, consistency is the bigger goal to me. Granted I get 83% from a good
crush with BIAB,...

But I explain to him with my mill set up tight so I can grind finely, I get 83% efficiency as a
normal processI'm not sure this argument is even necessary. I may be misremembering, but I
recall the ea...

to my keg...Yo...

I once did a dunkel lager in the garage area of my apartment. Came out great. I had to pick the
right time of year to do it. I chose late fall, where I hit acceptable fermentation temps first

I have also done an all Galaxy pale ale (not SM but ASH) that was excellent.
