1 can Cooper’s Pilsner
1.2kg light dried or liquid malt
40g Saaz hop pellets
Add 200g of the malt and 20g of the hop pellets to 2 litres water. Bring to the boil and simmer for 20 minutes. Be careful it doesn’t boil over, as it creates one hell of a mess. After 20 minutes, add the rest of the hops, cover and turn off the heat. Leave it for another 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, mix up the malt and can as usual, dissolving it all in boiling water and adding to the fermenter. Strain the hop mixture and add the liquid to the fermenter. Discard the hops.
I do it every third or fourth brew. I’ve done it with a variety of kits, even the brewiser one, and they’ve all turned out super. I generally use 50g Saaz pellets, I usually go 25/25 but sometimes 20/30.
