Product description

Coopers Craft British Bulldog Robust Porter (8 Litres)

With a name like British Bulldog, you know this isn’t a quiet little pup you’d expect to see in someone’s handbag. It’s a bulldog, and it bites. This robust twist on a classic English Porter creates an intense roasted bitter dark chocolate flavour with a malty sweet finish and strong coffee, chocolate and dried fruit aroma that perfectly suits a variety of foods.

Recipe of the month pack includes:
    1.3kg Winter Dark Ale
    225g Light Spraymalt
    100g Crushed Carafa Type III Grain
    Lallemand Nottingham Dry Yeast

    Colour: Brown/Black
    Body: High
    Bitterness: Medium
    Approx. Alcohol Level: 6.6% ABV
    Carbonation: Natural


Step 1: Mix
    Clean and sanitise all equipment that will come in contact with the brew.
    Stir grain into 500ml of hot water (about 68 oC) and let steep for about 1hr.
    Strain into a pot then bring to the boil then remove from the heat.
    Set the pot in a cold water bath to cool then pour into the Fermenting Vessel (FV).
    Add the contents of the Winer Dark Ale and Spraymalt to the FV.
    Fill the FV with cold water to the 8.5 litre mark.
    Sprinkle the Nottingham yeast and fit the lid.

Step 2: Brew
    Place the FV in a location out of direct sunlight and try to ferment between 18C - 22C.
    Fermentation should take 7 to 14 days.
    At around day 7 check the specific gravity (SG).
    Check the SG again the following day and so on.

Step 3: Bottle
    The brew is ready once the SG has stabilised over a couple of days.
    Gently fill clean Coopers 740ml PET bottles to about 3cm from the top.
    Add 2 carbonation drops per 740ml bottle (ore one per 500ml bottle) and secure the caps.
    Store the bottles upright in a location out of direct sunlight at or above 18C.

Step 4: Enjoy
    After at least two weeks, check for sufficient carbonation by squeezing the bottles.
    Bottles kept unrefrigerated should improve with age.
    When ready to drink, chill the bottles upright.
    The chilled beer may be poured into clean glassware, leaving the sediment behind.
    Expect the alcohol content to be approximately 6.6 %ABV.
