Unreal Ale (23 Litres)
We, at Coopers, are renown worldwide for our fine ales. This easy recipe gives the home brewer the opportunity to make an ale with real character.
- 1.7kg Coopers Real Ale
- 1kg Coopers Brew Enhancer 1
- 1lb Light Dry Malt
- Dextrose Corn Sugar
- Colour: Gold
- Body: Medium
- Bitterness: Medium
- Approx. Alcohol Level: 4.6% ABV
- Naturally Carbonated: Natural
STEP 1: Mix
Dissolve Coopers Real Ale, Brew Enhancer 1 and Light Dry Malt in 3 litres of hot water. Fill fermenter with cool water to the 23 litre mark and stir. Sprinkle supplied yeast over the wort surface and fit the lid. Ferment temperature should be in the range 21C-27C. Bottle when specific gravity has reached 1.012 (or two readings the same over 24 hours).
STEP 2: Brew
Ale yeast strains are generally the most reliable, fermenting quickly and effectively. Ale yeast is supplied with most beer kits. Although Ale yeast can ferment at very high temperatures (as high as 40C), the closer the brew is to 21C the cleaner the flavour and aroma.
STEP 3: Bottle
We recommend the use of PET bottles or reusable glass bottles designed for storing beer. Bottles need to be primed so that secondary fermentation (producing the gas in the bottle) can take place
