Coopers Lager with Dark LME

I brewed a Coopers lager with 3 Cups table sugar, and 2 LBS of Dark LME I had laying around.  This is the last of my supplies  and I will need some corn sugar for the bottles.  I brewed this on 5/28/11.  It did not go crazy like the stout, because I did not overly aerate the wort.  The OG was 1.047.

Coopers Stout

I brewed a Coopers Stout with 3 lbs of Dark DME on Friday May 20th, and got crazy yeast activity the next day.  I had to creat a special blow off for all the foam blowing out of the bucket.  It calmed down after about 20 hours and now I think it maybe ready for a secondray or maybe I will just leave it alone.

Real Ale with Hop Tea

I brewed a basic real ale with hop tea (1/2 oz. hops in boiling water at 15 mon, 1/2 oz. cascade hops at last 5 min.)   - - Going to be bottling this in the next few days.  Brewed this on 3/19/11.  Appears to be comnplete in its fermentation.  I needed a basic beer.  I might make a generic beer lable.
