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.

Thomas Cooper had two wives and 19 children, who went on to have children and grandchildren of their own. It is not surprising then that today 5th and 6th generation Coopers oversee and work at the brewery. They are the custodians of all the family secrets.

Luckily for beer lovers, an Amber Ale recipe is one of the secrets passed down by the members of the Cooper family. Rich deep copper in colour, this mid bodied Ale has a biscuity malt palate balanced by toffee caramel sweetness and a nutty finish with citrus hop notes. Certainly a secret worth sharing.
