Coopers Draft Beer Kit

Post by XXXXX » 8 years ago

This is the latest batch of extract beer I've made. I used the Cooper's Draft Beer Kit, and, while it turned out fine (basically how I expected it to be), I don't think I'll use it again. It's beer, but it's very plain. I prefered the Cooper's Pilsener kit to the Draft beer kit.

Primary for 21 days. Force carbonation at 4* Celcius for 5 days at 12psi. Carbonation feels perfect to me, as does temperature, but as you can see, it has a formidable head. Is this normal? It seems a bit too thick to me?

Also, what about the clarity? I feel it should be more clear. Is three weeks not long enough? Should I leave it for 4 or 5?

I am guessing this is a lager? I usually leave my lagers in primary for 2 weeks, rack into a corny kegs(this is my secondary) and place back in my fermentation/lagering fridge at 2 - 4 degrees C for 4 to 6 weeks. The clarity comes out crystal clear no filtering etc, lagers you need to be patient.

Looks like a very nice pour.
