Your small doses may be different to mine
I have another dark one in the tank at the moment. This is another Coopers recipe of the month. Called Ol’ Brown Dog. Hopefully because it is a faithful brew and not because it would kill one…
This is a mixture of stout and amber tins plus 300g of Crystal malt grain. Plenty of hops in it.
An Australian male person who brews beer in Vietnam if that is more PC.
Ah, ok, I thought by “Australian brewer” you meant an Australian brewing company, not just some individual … hence my statement. Also what does a Personal Computer have to do with it?
The are some good dark ales out there. There is a Kooinda Dark IPA, quite malty and nutty, and not so bitter.
I find it very difficult to get dark beers in most bottle shops. Our local will usually have White Rabbit (at $80 a case) and sometimes one of the JS porters. But that’s about it. Even when I go to Sydney, the local bottlos simply do not stock it. If you are lucky they will have Tooheys Old.
This is one of the reasons I keep up with the home brewing, because it’s the only way I can get anything nice to drink on a continuous basis. My staple is a very simple brew that consists of a dark roasted tin + lager malt tin, water and some hop pellets. I just use an English ale yeast and always get good results. It costs about $30 for 30 long necks.
I like to throw in something different every now and then, like these last two, or a double chocolate stout that goes very well. I occasionally make an IPA or I recently made a cerveza. But that’s mainly for the missus and my neighbour, who aren’t fond of the dark side.
Yeah I know that, I’ve even consumed it by the litre in Madrid.
The home brew was a tin from Coopers called ‘Mexican Cerveza’. I just called it a cerveza, suggestive of a version of a popular Mexican lager, because that is what Coopers called it on the tin. I forgot I need to be specific when posting here
I’ll keep an eye out for the dark one. Always willing to try new things. I’ve tried Asahi black, which I didn’t mind. Very hard to find though, I haven’t seen it anywhere since.
