Enhancing a beer kit with speciality grains, hops and upgraded yeast | Coopers Bootmaker Pale Ale

Beer Kit
In this video I brew a beer kit using a standard 1 can beer kit (in this case Coopers Bootmaker Pale Ale) and enhance it with some speciality grains, hop additions and a style specific yeast. There’s a tasting at the end. Did it taste as good as I promised…?

If you’ve brewed a few kits before and want to experiment with adding some grains such as crystal malt, experimenting with adding hops, or changing the yeast kit yeast for a better quality or style specific type, then this video will show how easy it can be. It’s a great way to experiment with different additions and pimp up a beer kit to take it to a new level and make it your own.

The recipe I used is as follows:
(Brew 23L)

1 x Coopers Bootmaker Pale Ale Kit
1kg Light Dried Malt Extract
300g Light Crystal Malt Grain
200g Carapils Grain
50g Nelson Sauvin Hop Pellets
25 Centennial Hop Pellets
1 x Mangrove Jacks Liberty Bell Yeast
Harris Pure Brew
