In stock

Add Brewing Sugar

All beer kits require a brewing sugar to reach the correct ABV. You may choose to add this to your cart now if desired. Dextrose gives you a clean dry result, Flavour Booster adds extra head retention and mouthfeel, and Dry Malt Extract adds the most authentic malt flavours.

Grain Infusion (Optional)

A grain infusion adds extra malt flavour to the beer. Try Cara-malt or Crystal for pale beers, and Roasted Barley or Chocolate Malt for dark beers. Steep with boiled water for 10 minutes before adding to the brew.

Finishing Hops (Optional)

Finishing hops add extra hop flavour and aroma to the beer. Steep the hop “tea bag” with boiled water for 5 minutes before adding the tea and the tea bag to the brew.

Yeast Upgrade (Optional)

Upgraded yeasts have more desirable fermentation properties. Try “Safale US-05” for a clean dry flavour in Australian or American ales, “Safale S-04” for malty flavour and body in British beers, “Saflager” yeasts for clean lagers, “Safbrew T58” for Belgian ales and “Safbrew WB-06” for Bavarian wheat beers.

In 1862, Coopers brewery operations were located close to an area known as the Devil’s Half Acre. This rather intimidating name stemmed from the somewhat menacing people that frequented the neighbourhood. As such, it had a reputation for being a place to steer clear of at night.

This devilish brew is inspired by the shady characters of the Devil’s Half Acre. As black as the sinister night, this full bodied Porter has ruby hints, delicious chocolate toffee malt character, moderate bitterness with fruity hop notes and a rich creamy head. It’s sure to bring out your dark side.
