G'Day beer lovers,

Just wondering if anyone has had experiences (good + bad) with the Coopers Canadian blonde - I'm still a fairly new home brewer (but am very addicted to it - didnt know what I was missing!!) .. got a recipe from the coopers website, using brew enahncer 1 and strawberry clover honey - I wanted to add some malt as well, but unsure the qty as I don't wanna make the beer too sickly sweet - anyone got any suggestions how much malt I should use,

thanks

Welcome aboard Ol Mate,
I assume you are talking about DME as your malt. If so just replace the brew enhancer by the amount of DME you want to add. Otherwise the alcohol content will be too high(unless you like a big brew). Adding malt won't contribute to the sweetness per se, it will contribute to alcohol %, mouthfeel and body.

I had a few Coopers Blonde kits when they first came out and it was a good summer drinkin ale if left to age for a couple of months.

Cheers
Roach
