When you say you used the Coopers yeast, was it the one with the kit? Generally I don't bother giving the full lager treatment when using Coopers lager/ale blended yeast. I'll ferment at 60 or so for a couple weeks and then crash the primary to 35 degrees for a week or two before packaging.

Yeah, it was the cerveza kit yeast. In the instructions they say that it is the coopers european lager yeast, and is a true lager strain...I assume it's the lager/ale blend people have mentioned though. I will just keep it in primary for another week, then see what happens in the basement, if it keeps on rolling along at 55 I will leave it there for a couple, then crash it in the fridge before kegging. Draft corona seems kind of weird though...

I just went back and realized i missed this, Pantera rule! I wish I got to see them. I have seen Down with Rex though, so that was close...sort of, but not really.

We saw Pantera at the 1st Ozzfest. They were spot on that night! At Ozzfest '04,we saw Judas Priest & slayer,among others. But It'll be interesting to see how close I can come to SA summer ale,maybe even improve it?...

Paul from the Coopers brewery posted on the Coopers forum the different strains of yeast that comes with each kit. The Cerveza is listed as using the ale/lager blend. Coopers could have switched since then. An easy way to tell is look that the dried yeast. There will clearly be 2 different types of granules if it's a blend. If I ever get hold of a kit I'll have to check.
