I've never made this kit before, or indeed any lager. However this is my 9th brew (previously I have brewed English ales) and I feel more confident in experimentation. After trawling through this forum I've concocted a recipe which I plan to brew this weekend:

Can of coopers cerveza extract
150g extra light spray malt
850g brewing sugar
Saflager s23

Im also going to short brew by a couple of litres to add a little strength (as I understand the spray malt will reduce alcohol content slightly, correct me if I'm wrong!) And obviously I will be fermenting at around 11oC (52F) followed by diatecyl rest then racking into bottles and lager at around 2oC (35F).

What do you reckon people? I'm open to suggestions on my ingredients/method!

I make something very similar using a Coopers Australian Bitter kit and love it. I'll target around a 1.040 O.G., ferment at 50 degrees for a couple weeks, drop the temp down to 35 for a couple weeks. Keg and serve. It's an easy, quick adjunct lager. I'll actually be making another tomorrow.

I nearly tried that one myself, it was a toss up between the two! I will have to give it a go next time.
