    Very cute self-contained kit brewery (not mine)

    Very clever, but it is that a dustbin he was brewing in? One hopes it was new before he used it for brewing!

    Splitting a Kit?

    To answer the OP's original question, the Cooper's stout is always a safe option. And stout forms a good base for 'pimping' with various things (fermentable sugars, lactose, vanilla, cacao nibs, coffee...). LOADS of ideas on the huge thread this kit has.

    Splitting a Kit?

    I suspect it's quite hard unless you stick a mucky finger in or sneeze on it. I used to put the can in very hot water to loosen it up (which would have helped sterilise the outside of the can), then used a spritz of StarSan on the can opener. I would also transfer the remaining extract to a...

    Splitting a Kit?

    I bought a Coopers kit primarily to get the fermenter (for sale in the classifieds ;) ) and it came with an amber ale. There are recipes on the Coopers website to pimp their kits and I went for the "Bewitched Amber Ale" and it turned out to be one the best brews I ever did (in my brief second...

    Splitting a Kit?

    Yes, the Bruin and Christmas beers I was quite happy with. The Gallia was disappointing.

I'm putting these on a local forum, but thought I'd offer them here as well, since I got so much help and advice from this forum. I'm getting rid of; 1.

    Not everyone in New York would pay to see Andrew Lloyd-Webber May his trousers fall down as he bows to the Queen and the crown I don't know what tune that the orchestra played But it went by me sickly and sentimental

    Elephant beer

    Drank a few of these on an trip to Copenhagen and Aalborg many moons ago (1997 if memory serves). I recall it being a cut above the average lager (I was not, and largely remain not, a lager enthusiast) and appealingly strong for a daft teenager. Had no idea there was a stronger version!
