Ingredients

  • 1 x 1.7kg Coopers Mexican Cerveza
  • 1 x 500g Coopers Light Dry Malt
  • 1 x 250g Coopers Carbonation Drops

STEP  1: Mix

Dissolve Coopers Light Dry Malt in 2 litres of hot water.

Add Coopers Mexican Cerveza and dissolve.

Fill fermenting vessel (FV) with cool water to the 23 litre mark and stir.

Sprinkle Mexican Cerveza yeast over the surface and fit the lid.

STEP 2: Brew

Ferment the brew at a temperature of 21C.

Fermentation has finished once the specific gravity is stable over 2 days.

STEP 3: Bottle

Gently fill clean PET bottles to about 3cm from the top.

Add 2 carbonation drops per bottle and secure the caps (use only one carbonation drop for bottles intended to be stored for a longer period).

Store the bottles upright in a location out of direct sunlight at or above 18C.

STEP 4: Enjoy!

After at least two weeks, check for sufficient carbonation by squeezing the PET bottles.

Bottles kept unrefrigerated should improve with age.

When ready to drink, chill the bottles upright.

The chilled beer may be poured into clean glassware, leaving the sediment behind.

Expect the alcohol content to be approximately 3.8% ABV.
