Coopers’ Authentic IPA (v2)
Since I really liked the Coopers Authentic IPA, I went for it again. I had planned to dry hop it, but a bit of wrong clicking while doing my last orders, I ended up with 500g Hopped Spray Malt.
Coopers’ Authentic IPA Recipe/ingredients:
1.7kg Thomas Coopers Sparkling IPA
500g Light Hopped Spray Malt
500g Light Spray Malt
500g Table sugar
Munton Ale Yeast, plus kit yeast
20 litre of water
There was a bit of a panic when the spray malt solidified, when it hit the hot water. So I had to stir it for quite some time to disolve it. OG ended up at 1050, started of at around 23c and I just let it be.
Two weeks later the FG was 1009, I bottled 38 lovely tasting IPA, albeit very young tasting. It was also much cloudier then last time I brewed it up.
Tried one, after a week in bottles, as it has settled and cleared up nicely. Tasted very young but great, looking forward to another sample in a few week time, should have at least six weeks.
Getting to enjoy this homebrewing lark, great tasting IPA for 48p a bottle. Yes there is some work – about three hours for about 35-38 bottles – and a heck of a lot of waiting around. But it is the “I brewed it” that make it taste good and worth it.
