Hi guys

I have just finished drinking my lager that came with the diy kit and very nice!
I want to try another brew can but as its summer its too hot for many. I would really like to know a great beer to try with the warmer temperatures.

Are you after a kit for fermenting in warm weather or drinking in warm weather?

If fermenting, what temps can you maintain? You may want to look at brewing a Saison with a Saison yeast. There is a recipe in the Coopers database.

I meant fermenting in warmer weather, i was abel to keep the temp around 22 to 24 and the lager worked fine. I was wanting to know other great tasting beer that can ferment at that temp.

That particular kit, despite the name “Lager” on the label, actually comes with Coopers dry ale yeast, which does fine to around the temps you mention. Warmer than that and you might want to use Saison yeast, as Harry mentioned, although only do that if you like the taste of Saisons. They aren't for everyone as the yeast is strongly flavoured.

All of the Original Series kits come with Coopers dry ale yeast, as do the Blonde and English Bitter kits in the International Series, and would be reasonable choices. The Blonde is a nice kit for summer time.

Cheers,

Christina.
