Coopers’ Fresh Draught recipe
Trying to think ahead, so brewed up Coopers Fresh Draught for early summer drinking. Also it could handle a colder temperature while fermenting than an ale can.
Coppers Fresh Draught recipe/ingredients:
1.7kg Thomas Coopers Traditional Draught
1.5kg Thomas Coopers Light Malt Extract
Used the yeast from the Draught tin.
It went off at 20c and slowly over the next week it dropped to 15c and hovered around 13c the last week.
With a OG 1038 and a FG 1007 will give around 4.5% when bottled. I got 39 bottles and they have had two weeks standing around atm. It is drinkable but I haven’t managed to brew a lager that I really enjoy, like the ales and IPAs.
UPDATE: four weeks later and it is drinkable, rather refreshing when it is warm/hot outside.
