Good to know the OP helped other brewers.

I found something interesting. Always had a problem navigating the Coopers and Muntons sites for information to help out a poster. Here is a site for all of Coopers' products, and it is written in American.

Good recipe guides also.

Yeah their sites are a little difficult to navigate. I didn't see the link though.

That's because I just plain forgot to paste.

Lol awesome. Do you know anything about the Android app for these forums? I'm trying to figure out how to read these forums at work.

What is an Android?

Don't have a clue. I'm strictly Windows PC.

Its an operating system for a smartphone. I heard rumours of an Android based OS for computers, but haven't seen any yet. Maybe I'm also out of the loop.

You can get some Cooper's products on amazon too. Shipping is usually cheaper too. Here's the Cooper's link I have in the US; http://us.diybeer.com/

They are pretty inexpensive and it seems like they are made a lot faster.

Side note : why do some people hate brewers best kits?

Thanks!
Never really tried them, I always include real grain in my recipes, but if you ever watched Craig on Utube he tries a lot of different kits and gives you an honest critique, quite entertaining. I have tried many of the Brewers Best Kits and for a novice brewer they make excellent beer.

Hi guys,
My first Coopers extract brew is bottled and I'm eagerly waiting.
I would like to start a second one but just would like your guy's advice.

I am looking at either the Lager (I recon the safer option) or the IPA.

I would just like your recomendations on a kit you think I should try and also if I should add anything else eg hopps or dme..

Please note I'm still learning and knowledge levels are still at ultimate rookie.

Thanks in advance

Reason: Spelling

Which beer would you prefer to drink? I would advise you to brew the beer you would most like to drink, and since it your second kit just go as it till you get your process down.

Just my 2 cents....
