What do you like? What are you adding to your kit...sugar,malt extract? Some of the premium kits are really good...

Not sure what Cooper's do without looking but their kits are very reliable.

I have fond memories of that kit because I only used it once and never went back. So was it bad? - not at all I proved I could brew BEER! :groupdancing:

that was drinkable! ashock1

I've not looked back since!

Just noticed this post and am interested in giving this recipe a go. However, as a fairly newbie, I have some questions, that I am sure will have some of you rolling in the aisles 😗. 1. Is the 3kg of light malt extract, liquid of powder? 2. I take it that the yeast is the MJ M54 one?. 3. You say to 'stir the hell out of it, whilst adding the DME' I thought it was 3kg of LME that I had to add? 4. How much sugar/dextrose for priming and what temps afterwards?

Thanks in advance

After saying I wanted to try another pilsner my son got me a John bull pilsner after adding 23litres to the kit I used 1kg beer enhancer. Sg 1033 after 8 day's took a reading 1010, then 9 day's 1008, looks like everything is going on the right direction. I plan to bottle up Saturday, total 15 day's. Not sure what abv it's going to be, hopefully not to weakathumb..
