I thought i would give brewing my own beer a shot. I went with a coopers dark ale. Not knowing any better I mixed in 1kg of table sugar. Tested the beer yesterday when fermentation slowed (after 8 days) and it came out with a reading of 1.006 but it has a bit of a sweet smell and a cidey flavour to it but through that flavour i can also taste a dark chocolately coffee taste. I hope that with further fermentation the cider flavour will disapate and the beer flavour will be more pronounced.
I cant wait to try another brew. i want to keep it simple for now and try another coopers (IPA) what are some suggestions to make a simple good tasting brew using the coopers cans. (their instructions suck)
