Coopers real ale kit

Brewed this for my first home-brew. I used a kg of brewing sugar plus more for the bottles. found it simple to make and i left it 2 weeks in primary fermentation and has been a month in the bottles. i am a bit disappointed with the results as the beer has no body to it and although being carbonated well lacks a head. maybe it will improve with age but next time i will try a more premium kit.

Plenty of flavour

Used hard water from a spring as I do not like soapy Midlands and ~Yorkshire brews. 500ml bottles as I have had no success with polybarrels

Did this as my first kit - nervously tended to it. Tried first one - wasnt sold on it but as the weeks went on this turned into one of my fave ales. coopers great kit. only reason it doesnt get the 5 is the head wasnt great, again this may have been new brewer mistakes.

Good Stuff

I've never done a Coopers before. Took about 8 days to brew and then another 8 for the secondary in the bottle. Used Coopers carbonation drops ( so much easier and less messy than sugar). Just had a tester and although very tasty I reckon it will benefit from some time to mature. I was surprised at how quickly the brew cleared. I suspect I shall be a very happy chappy on Christmas Day!

Great session beer

I made this with coopers enhancer. Took eight days to brew, very drinkable after secondary. Wait a few weeks though, it develops a much fuller flavour.

Wait a month

My first ever brew! Had the intention of waiting a month before drinking this beer but couldn't & started drinking it after only a week,lol. It was still fairly good but have just had 1 of my 2 bottles left tonight & it is now a month since bottling & I now wish I had been more patient. It is GREAT! It has a head & a cleaner taste than before. I only brewed it with sugar & I'm very impressed. I will be brewing this again but will wait a month before drinking.

very nice ale

i used muntons beer enhancer and used a pressure keg with muntons light spray malt, after being in the keg for 3 -4 weeks the beer flavour realy improves

Probably the best?

I made this kit with light spray malt and 20g Golding hops added as a tea. The result was better than most pub bought beers and just kept improving with age. Fantastic!
