Heritage Lager

Almost a whole year since my last brew (which has worked out great, BTW).  Inspired by a colleague’s homebrew at Friday afternoon drinks, I’ve dragged a kit off the shelf to start another brew.  This time it’s a Cooper’s Heritage Lager, with 600g Dextrose and 400g Maltodextrin.  Nothing fancy.  O.G. is somewhere around 1.042 to 1.044.

  • Bottled a few days ago at final specific gravity around 1.018, so ABV less than 4%. Higher FG than I was expecting, but I think fermentation had safely stopped. I had racked to a secondary a few days before which roused the yeast a little on whatever sugars remained.
