I might be from BC but I spend a lot of time over in CyberOZ on the Cooper's web site chatting with the blokes downunder.
This recipe really is that easy. Two cans of goo, 23L water, yeast. The real Toucan Stout recipe calls for 1Kg Dextrose but I think this only increases the ABV% to somewhere close to 8%
. I'm omiting the dex for my next one.
The other thing the Aussie do is use recultured yeast from the dregs of 6 Cooper's Pale Ale in a starter. This addition makes this beer the closest thing the Cooper's Best Extra Stout which is a nice drop! I've got my sarter going for this weekend!
