Sparkling Ale was created by DazScott
I had a coopers sparkling ale for the first time in a long time on the weekend and had forgotten how good they are. I tried to find an all grain recipe but there isn’t much around, anyone know of a good sparkling ale recipe?

Coopers Sparkling Ale clone
(5 gallons/19 L, all-grain)
OG = 1.052 FG = 1.008
IBU = 29 SRM = 6 ABV = 5.8%

Ingredients
8.75 lbs. (4 kg) Joe White pale ale malt
1 lb. (0.45 kg) Joe White white wheat malt
1.6 oz. (45 g) English extra dark crystal malt (180 °L)
7 oz. (200 g) cane sugar (90 min.)
7.1 AAUs Pride of Ringwood hops (90 min.) (0.75 oz./21 g at 9.5% alpha acid)
1 tsp. Irish moss (15 min.)
White Labs WLP009 (Australian Ale) or yeast cultured from bottles of Coopers Sparkling Ale
1 cup corn sugar (if priming)

Step by Step
Mash the grains at 149 °F (65°C) for 90 minutes. Vourlaf until your runnings are clear, sparge to collect 6.5 gallons (25 L) of wort, and bring to a boil. Boil for 90 minutes, adding the hops and sugar at the beginning of the boil. After the boil, turn off the heat and chill the wort rapidly to 65 °F (18 °C). Transfer to a fermenter, aerate well, and pitch the yeast. Ferment at 65 – 68 °F (18 – 20 °C). When the beer has reached final gravity, bottle or keg as usual.

This was the actual recipe given to BYO magazine, though a couple of years ago I think Coopers stopped using sugar just because of the sugar hate at the moment, even though it gets fully fermented and doesn't contribute any taste!

I agree though, I  stopped drinking them years ago, but had a nice fresh-ish one not long ago and it was good! Cheers!

Cheers!

Thanks so much for this. I’ll give it a bash and see how it turns out. Would you reckon just go 20L mash water and 15L sparge for a 25L batch?

Cheers!

Brewing a familiar Dark Mild later today. (hint: Was the bastard tired? Or was he run over by a tire (tyre). No one really knows). One thing for sure. It will be a treat when done. Cheers!
