Tonight I’ve been mixing up my second proper batch of homebrew (the first doesn’t count as I never bottled it). This time I’m brewing Coopers Brewmaster India Pale Ale.
The kits are pretty easy to get going. Adding spraymalt instead of sugar and a better strain of yeast produces a very drinkable pale ale last time round so I’m trying that again. I did get some hops to throw in but I decided to leave them for the next attempt.
I’ll be leaving the beer in the barrel for about a week before transferring to another barrel for another week. After that it’s the bottling process which can be a bit of a pain in the nads.
This brew should be ready for New Years so here’s hoping for another success!
