Kiwi ish Pale Ale was created by RAD
I have had a Coopers Pale Can and 500g of LDME sitting in the cupboard since the last Big W sale and had some 200g of Nelson Sauvin from a work to NZ and after a trip to my local home brew supply came home with some Riwaka and Mosaic hops.
This is what I came up with below.

1.7 Kg Coopers Pale Ale
500g Coopers Light Dry Malt Extract
1kg Coopers BE2
250g Gladfields American Ale malt Steeped for 30 min @ 70C
40g Mosaic @ 0 min and Whirlpool for 20 min 75-80C
30g Riwaka @ 0 min and Whirlpool for 20 min 75-80C
30g Nelson Sauvin @ 0 min and Whirlpool for 20 min 75-80C
SAFALE US05 yeast
Fermented @18C for 6 days
Dry Hop for days
60g Mosaic
30g Riwaka
30g Nelson Sauvin
Currently Cold crashing @ 4C for 5 days
starting gravity ; 1050 final 1010

If you go by the flavor in the hydrometer tube its going to be good.
Cheers
Rob

Did you use your method you mention on another post where you mixed the 500g LDME then steeped the grains in that before the boil?

The technique of steeping the grain in either extract or LDME come from the John Palmer " How to Brew book and it works a treat. I think did go into it more somewhere else on the Forum.

Ok so a Kiwi ish pale ale. Ive just done a brew with 4kg ale malt and 400 g of med crystal malt. And all over 150 gms of Wai-iti and Ri-waka. inclusive.The og is 1040 and should finish at 1010.
Mashed in at 67degC.
ABV 4.2%
So kind of meets the Ordinary bitter mark i think.
Wai -iti this year is 1.4% so hopfully alot of aroma.
cheers guys .Oh also i dropped my water ph down to 6ph before mashing and on top of that i added 6grams cacl2 and 6 grams of caso4 into the mash.
My starting ph was 7.8 but remember to check your local water before adjusting , im in New Zealand. So cheers brew on and please take care.

Thanks drewtech ?

I've read on other forums that screw tops are OK to use. Just need to watch out cause some commercial bottles are made from thinner glass than home brew tallies.

Hey guys probably a stupid question but are the standard screw top glass big bottles right to use?Didn't realise they were all screw tops now.Cheers
