hi guys,well i have made a coopers draught ,coopers pale ale,coopers heritage lager,black rock lager,,morgans royal oak amber ale. all with the apropriate adda pack.what i want to do now is to make somthing tried and tested by somone with all the exact details and adda packs,i would also like to use a different yeast other than the under the lid variety that comes with the cans,so i am open to all suggestions for a recipe and i will take it from there,i dont really want to start making it too complicated either so lets see what you k&k guys have got or even you AG guys im sure would have started off with the K&K styles,remember if you post a recipe and i use it i will give an honest opinion on it and your reputation will hang on it

You should try steeping some crystal and perhaps some chocolate malt, boil the wort from this with some nice hop plug or pellets. Do away with adda packs and add malt extract, dry or liquid.

for a change in yeast, try safale or saflager (depending on the kit or what your after). also nottingham yeast is also a good dry yeast.

if your after the little creature taste and don't want to use liquid yeasts, look for the dried version of 1056, i might be wrong, however i thought the jovial one had it in stock.

is there something in mind your trying to brew??? or are you open to suggestion??
also, is there a style your after?

The best kit beer I made was using GMKs recipe for a pilsner. So he can take the credit for this one. Youll probably need a beer fridge for this one because fermentation temperatures are very important.

Morgans Golden Saaz Pilsner
1kg dextrose or malt, your choice. I used malt.
40g Saaz Dry hop.
Saflager or liquid yeast.

I fermented at about 10 degrees for two weeks. Left out in the sun for a day or so at 24 for a diacetyl rest (Gets rid of undesirable flavour). Then racked and dry hopped for a further week at 10 degrees. Then finally lagered as close to freezing as I could for a month.

Enjoy.
