Yes, it’s been a few days since I received my Coopers Stout in the mail. I have been very excited to get the ingredients together to start the brewing process. This time, I will be brewing a beer I actually want to drink, as opposed to the Lager I just bottled.
As you can see, this beer is much darker than the last. This is the regular Coopers Stout. I am hoping it is good.
This is all the ingredients getting mixed up together with the boiling water.
The brew is supposed to be between 21C and 27C. It always starts off good like this, but eventually gets cooler. Now, I am keeping it next to the pellet stove, wrapped in a towel for a toasty 26C. At this temperature, the fermentation should be complete in about five days.
This is just a photo to show you how dark this stuff is.
