Google is also your friend if looking for a specific beer recipe (clone). If you take that to your Local HomeBrew Shop (LHBS), they should be able to get you close with the ingredients that are available here. I also use a software program called ProMash. In this you can add recipes. I have a decent collection in there that I might be able to send (a few MB in size).

This list is for those that use kits in the can and wort kits and don't have the time to brew from scratch, they are about as close as you will get to the beer that you can buy at the bottle shop or get on tap at your local pub, probably not as good as the brewing style above but still excellent.

Of coarse using the tips below the recipes and as said above experimenting with different hops and flavours will get you a better beer that you can enjoy more than the standard beers produced by the large brewerys.

The Whats' Brewing and Cascade are the kits in the can.

ESB do these as well but they do an excellent wort kit, with these you can adjust the flavour buy just adding more water or less depending on how rich a flavour you want.

Coopers Extra Stout

Two cans of Coopers Stout (stand can in boiling water for 10min)
Add 2lts of hot water stir in.
Top up with 18lts of water
When temp is below 30c add both packets of yeast
Leave to ferment as normal
( no sugars to be added )

It turns out very close to Coopers Best Extra stout and only improves with age, bottle or keg as you would normally.

p.s don't be to concerned if it froths out the air lock ( like a volcano )

I have tried this and it makes a very strong flavoured stout, very tastey indeed.

Homebrew Budget Beer
1 tin of Farmland Lager

1.5kg of dectrose/malt/corn syrup mix

Safale s.04 dry ale yeast.

Prepare all the gear, then put it down:twobeers:

Well I must say I'm impressed with how it has turned out, crisp and clear with a very nice bite to it, not the usual 1kg but 1.5kg of dectrose/malt and corn syrup, seems to make the difference.

All grain recipe.
5kg American pale malt
1kg biscuit malt
1kg medium crystal malt
150g dark malt
250g dark crystal malt
100g oatmeal

mash at 64 degrees, for 1:20

boil for 1:30, 35g Fuggles for 1 hr, 25g Willamette dry hop in FV .

Strong ale yeast at 19-25 deg, start at a low temp so it doesn't froth out the air lock too much. Leave on low temp for a day or two then ramp up to 25ish.
you can get a stuck ferment due to the high amount of ingredients, just swish around the FV to reactivate the yeast or add some dextrose in small amounts.

CAUTION, This is a strong beer, around 8-9% depending on the mash/grain crush/ mashing process. I have a grainfather so I am getting good conversion rates from the grain.


2 full vanilla beans cut, scraped and steeped 7n a half bottle of vodka for a few months. Once fermented, put vanilla mix into cleaned FV and add some brown sugar (2-300g) and transfer the beer into the mix making sure to leave the trub in the first FV.

This looks great! Have tried many times to create a vanilla flavour in a high alcohol beer and have been disappointed. Will give this a go. Might even try a dark rum also.

Nothing fancy about this, but very easy to make and very tasty.

1.7kg Coopers Australian Pale Ale
1kg Brew Enhancer 2
Top up to 23 litres

3 of us did a blind taste test against the commercial Coopers Pale Ale, and couldn't pick the difference.
Colour, head, carbonation, body and flavour were identical.
The only difference I could pick was in aroma, and that was so small as to be nearly identical. While the homebrew didn't have a homebrew smell about it, the Coopers one had a slight "commercial" smell to it.


I'll be trying your Stout recipe soon, Baz. Recently did the Coopers Stout but with only 1 can plus 500g BE2 and 500g BE3. Been in the bottle less than 3 weeks, but very nice. Would like a bit more body to it, which may come with more age, but very drinkable right now.
