just thought i'd start up this thread again after after a year and a half of no activity.
its been 5 days since my little bro and i made our own coopers australian stout.
here's what we did:
-1 can coopers stout extract
-1 lb milled chocolate malt barley steeped at 150 for 1 hour in 6 L water
-1 lb honey
-3 cups brown sugar
-topped water up to 23 L mark as indicated
-added enough corn sugar to bring the OG to 1.042 (about 6 cups)
-11 g pouch of Coopers ale yeast (not the 5 g package included with the kit)
the primary fermentation went great and has slowed.
tonight we are racking to secondary for attenuation and clearing and all that good stuff.
which means, i get to have a taster tonight
this is one of our first brews ever, and i think we made something very tasty. anyone spot something that we may have done wrong here?
