    Coopers XPA Clone - Recipe Feedback

    G'day All. Spent the last three weeks down under and gained a strong appreciation for XPA's, Pacific Ales and Tropical Pale Ales - nothing like any of these styles are common in Europe. Did some research into the first of these and couldn't get a clear definition of what defines an XPA apart...

    Bottling 3/4 full - priming?

    using Coopers yeast for other styles

    I am in the process of making a Coopers Pale Ale clone. To do this I recently recultured the yeast from 12 Coopers Pale Ale stubbies, used a 500ml starter and pitched into my wort after 24 hours. Anyway, it went gangbusters and made its way down to 1.010 after two and a half days. Hydrometer...
