    No I did not use anything. Would it have helped if I did? I do have some, but I didn't use it.
    I did not forget, I just didn't bother.

  • Posted in thread: Fermenting and the anxiety that follows on 04-11-2012 at 05:49 PM
    It is difficult, but I find the most difficult part is that each batch produces such different
    results. I use different yeast, different kits, different everything and I am constantly asking
    myself "i...

  • Posted in thread: I'm kind of shocked on 04-11-2012 at 05:44 PM
    Yeah, that is normal. I get it when I make ciders. It will fade over time, regardless of
    whether it smells in the fermenter or the bottle. I had an undrinkable cider for 9 weeks
    because of the smell f...

    I have never experienced this with the Coopers yeast or the S04 by Safale, but with the US-05,
    after fermentation, there was a thick yeast layer on top of the beer that wouldn't go to the
    bottom. It i...

  • Posted in thread: Coopers Dark Ale: beer from the same batch is carbonating at different rates, why? on 04-10-2012 at 03:19 PM
    They were in my room, all at the same temp - about 20 Celsius. I know it's a bit warm, but I
    don't have a choice in my house - no room.I guess it was down to the more yeast speeding up the
    process. I ...

  • Posted in thread: Homebrewing and yeast smell on 04-10-2012 at 03:14 PM
    The yeast smell will fade better at warm, but it also means the beer won't last as long. As
    long as it has had time to carbonate (3 weeks minimum at warm) it will be OK. Think of it like
    you are fast-...

  • Posted in thread: Light Beer With Alcohol on 04-10-2012 at 03:10 PM
    As others have said, it is most probably down to the high attenuation. Alcohol as about 7
    calories per gram, a figure you wont' get rid of. The low calories is due to the stuff being
    like vodka, just ...

    it takes. I usually...

  • Posted in thread: Coopers Dark Ale: beer from the same batch is carbonating at different rates, why? on 04-10-2012 at 02:54 PM
    I did a coopers dark ale a while ago and it had the most head retention I have ever had from a
    home brew. It was like an ice cream when looking at it. I wish I had a picture, but I don't,
    unfortunatel...

  • Posted in thread: How Come My Beer Takes So Long to Mature? on 03-22-2012 at 02:00 PM
    I am just starting out in brewing, and I have come to the conclusion that experimentation is
    the key. I have deliberately brewed an IPA, a 'lager' (ale yeast) and a dark ale - all from the
    Coopers lin...
