    What are you drinking now?

    Local U-brew stout. Chocolate, malt, and coffee all blended well. $50 for 48 Canadian. 24 Budweiser is 35$ around here.

    What are you drinking now?

    Finished off a second Budweiser. I'm debating cracking a warm 6.5% home brew to rinse my mouth out.

    Dry Hopping

    7 days in the bottle. Sampled one. Had to have another. Carbonation is coming along nicely. Cascade aroma is there big time with an added bitterness+cascade flavor. I'm thinking it will all come together smoothly in 3-4 weeks.

    Coopers Wheat Brew Process

    I went with 116g of dextrose for 21L at 19° Hoping this will be a low-medium carb for my Real Ale, coopers

    Dry Hopping

    2.5oz cascades has been in there for 4 days now. I just dumped them in and left it alone. Didn't stir it, or weigh them down in a bag. They're all floating on top it seems. Was this the right choice? Or would a bag + some stainless steel marbles or something been better?

    lets see your full Fermenters

    I see a lot of these cone bottom fermentors and other than looking high tech with the valves, not sure what the purpose of the whole unit is. Is this for easier transfer of fermented beer off the trub to a bottling bucket or whatnot?

    Dry Hopping

    Went for 2.5 of Cascades. Gonna dry hop for 4-5 days and bottle. I figured it should be good to get an idea of what these hops offer.

    Coopers Wheat Brew Process

    I don't go for my FG until bottling day. I only do FG to calculate my ABV now. Good job, enjoy. 14-21 days is what I wait, minimum. I'm not in a rush.

    Best compliment you've received?

    Enjoyed an ice cold, crisp, light home brew with the wife. She never drinks beer, and had a second. Lucky for her, I write down all my recipes.

    Coopers Wheat Brew Process

    You nailed it. That's how I started. As long as you're not actively boiling the canned kit, everything else can be preboiled in a pot. If you did boil the kit in the water + malt etc it will darken, and cooking the malt isn't the best, but will make good beer. Well done

    Dry Hopping

    Hey all, Looking to dry hop for the first time. I've stuck to canned kits with added malt, extracts, coffee beans etc... But I have zero knowledge of hops! I currently have a Coopers Real Ale fermenting at 19°C and plan to dry hop with an unknown hop for 3-5 days. Flavour isn't the biggest...

    Coopers Wheat Brew Process

    Do not boil anything but a kettle of water. Sanitize EVERYTHING. I use starsan sanitizer in a spray bottle, Bucket, lids, can opener, and scissors you use to open malt sac, etc. Anything you are going to touch. First add the Dry malt extract to the fermentor, and pour 1.5 litres of boiling...

    Yeast pitching temp off - tips/advice?

    Well... I have one lightbulb unit in the small chest freezer. I've sealed all around the lid with some to keep heat in. It's been 3.5 hours and has gone from 8°C to 11.6... I'm hoping when I wake up in another 7 hours is will have reached 18° from one lightbulb.

    Yeast pitching temp off - tips/advice?

    Hey all, 13 brews in, Coopers and other kits are what I'm doing still. This particular brew I did something different by accident, being distracted and any other excuse I can try to lay out there. Pitched Coopers Ale yeast at 17° Celsius and placed into my temp controlled freezer that I...

    Did I batch prime enough?

    I typically throw in freezer for 20min then fridge until I drink within the next 30min I've kept a couple in the fridge for a couple days, same result. Should I cold crash the bottles for a week?

    priming individual bottles

    I've used this with corn sugar with excellent results. I don't have a 3/4tsp soon, yes they're available, but I measured 3 level x 1/4tsp into my 1tsp and after a couple of those I could eyeball the rest of the bottles in the 1tsp only doing up to what I figured was 3/4
