A light coloured but deceptively strong pale ale...Well Bittered, in fact very well bittered!
- 1 2x 1.5 kg Coopers light Liquid Malt
- 2 1x 500g Spray Medium Dried Malt Extract
- 3 1.2 Kg Brewing Sugar
- 4 100g Challenger Hops
- 5 50g Bramling Cross
- 6 Tsp of Irish Moss
- 7 Ale Yeast. Safale S33 is good
Boil 1 , 6 and 4 as much water as possible -You're going to need about 4 gallons for best results
After 50 mins boil add No5 and boil for another 5 minutes
strain off into a clean sterilised bucket and add no 2 and no 3 . Stir well to dissolve
Make up to 5 gallons with cold water and leave to cool below 24 C
Add yeast and leave to ferment for about 7 days or until all signs of fermentation have finished.(Bubbles stop rising)
It's best to syphon off into a clean fermenter with airlock, add finings and leave for another 5 days but you can miss this stage.
-Syphon off into a barrel or bottles using ½ teaspoon of sugar per pint to prime bottles or 50 to 100 g to a pressure barrel.
Leave in a warm place for 5 days then into a cool place to clear----Cheers!
