Ok Folks, Baseline stuff, play as required. This was my killer recipie before I got heavily involved in grains. Anyone interested in brewing honey may want to give it a go. You can leave out the Maple Syrup and it will still be fine. I have added ginger to this to and it is just yum.
- 1 Coopers kit, preferably a Canadian
- 1 kg Pale Malt Extract (liquid)
- 250 g Crystal Malt
- 500 g clover honey
- 250 g Maple Syrup
- 20 g Cascade (20 min left)
- 28 g Saaz (1 min)
Add the Crystal Malt to a grain sock (clean nylon stocking like the type the missus wears) and add it to 8 litres of water, bring to boil. Just before boiling is reached pull out the grains and stocking and strain.
Add the kit, malt and honey and boil for 1 hr with the 8 litres of water if you can, watch for boil overs.
20 min left add the Cascade, 1 min left add the Saaz and Maple Syrup.
Strain into the fermentor, top up to 23 litres, pitch yeast.
