Early records of “Cooper and Sons” producing India Pale Ale can
be found in the South Australian Advertiser, dated February 1868.
Thomas Coopers IPA (India Pale Ale) produces a beer with all the
hallmarks of a genuine IPA from the “mother land”. A strong ale
with robust malt characters and very high hopping
Coopers IPA (with some extras)
From Al of Monroe, Michigan on 6/30/2013.
I added HH Dry Malt Extract (DME), 1 lb. Bag and the warmed up 1 can of Coopers IPA extract and added it to the fermenting tub.I boiled 1/2 gallon of water and added another pound of HH Dry Malt Extract (DME) to the boiling . . .
From Anonymous of Marengo, Iowa on 9/3/2011.
I wanted a hopped kit but this did not come out like I expect an IPA to taste. It had a slight off flavor, which could be attributed to something I did. However there was no more hop flavor than a normal beer.***Editor's Note:This . . .
From Ron of Emeryville, California on 7/27/2011.
10/21/2013 – I have been having good success with the Mr Beer kits. But it looks like the Coopers kits are cheaper, maybe. Since the Mr Beer fermenters are 8.5 qts each, can I spread a Cooper 5 gall kit between 2 Mr Beer fermenters? Any suggestions on that? Maybe split the can, and put different added malt % each and maybe extra hops to one for varied . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, you can do all of that. The Cooper's lots are designed to make 20 to 24 quarts of beer, so just use a proportional amount.
9/23/2013 – I'm going to make a 5 gallon batch of IPA. How long do I boil my cascade hops (I have 2 ounces) and how much water should I boil?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Hard to say without more information...recipe? canned extract? one of our kits?As a rule, adding hops to the boil adds bitterness. Adding at the end, aroma. IPA's are often "dry hopped" also, i.e. adding them after fermentation. After looking up your last order however, I see you purchased a Cooper's IPA kit. If that is where you want . . .
7/1/2013 – I want to order some Coopers canned malt. How do I add pellet hops to the recipe?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Simply throw them in. If you are doing a boil, adding them at the beginning will contribute to bitterness. If you add them after the boil, they will contribute to flavor and aroma.Some people don't do a boil with the Cooper's "kits", so adding them just prior to fermentation will contribute to the flavor and aroma.Pellet hops simply . . .

2/20/2010 – coopers calls for one kilogram of corn sugar or one litre of Hi-maltose syrup and i want to use ur dme. what i understand is that a kilo is about 2.2 lbs if im wrong correct me, so i should be able to get your 5lbs bag and make 2 batches am i correct? also how would i use your bulk lme towards this?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: You are correct. A 5 lb bag of dry malt extract will do nicely for two 5-gallon batches (along with the Cooper's kits).Liquid malt extract can be used in the same way. A liter of malt extract weighs about 3.5 lbs.You will find that measuring dry malt extract is consideraby easier, however.
10/18/2009 – Since the canned Coopers extracts are used to produce +/- 5 gallons of brew, along with 2 lbs of corn sugar as an adjunct, can I use 1/2 the can of Coopers and 1 pound of corn sugar to brew 2.5 gallons? I'd like to experiment with flavors and don't want to commit to 2 cases of a beer I may not be happy with...
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, this can be done but I would seal up the remaining extract well, and refrigerate it also.Besides, 2 cases of beer isn't a huge committment...that's just a nice afternoon!
7/29/2009 – This is my first time using Coopers. How long would you suggest boiling the wort? I have heard 1hr is the required time
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The Cooper's Kits are billed as "no-boil kits". In other words, you can simply add the extract, fermentable sugar (corn sugar or dry malt extract) to water and ferment. Directions are under the plastic lid. I see no harm in a short boil however, particularly if you are adding additional aroma hops, flavors etc. Maybe 15 minutes.
7/16/2009 – I prefer to bottle condition my beer and perform the second stage of fermentation in the bottle. How much corn sugar should I add to each 12 oz bottle for this Malt?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Let's get our terminology straight first. A secondary fermentation is done prior to bottling. It is a clarifying step whereby you siphon from one vessel to another, and more of the sediment "falls out". After THAT, bottling or kegging takes place. Bottle conditioning (carbonation) occurs after the beer is clarified and you add additional . . .
7/15/2009 – I have used White Pure Cane Granulated Sugar for the additional 2 pounds. Can I use that with this Malt or would you recommend Corn Sugar?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: I would definately recommend using1) Dry malt extract, or 2) corn sugarfor the additional 2 pounds. Either one will improve your beer. Dry malt extract (DME) will add a richer, malty flavor. Corn sugar will be lighter in color, but not as malty.For my tastes, I go with malt extract. Especially with an IPA which has lots of hops . . .
6/7/2009 – New to this... What's the difference between using the dry malt extract (much cheaper) or the liquid malt extract?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: They are fundamentally the same products, it's just that the malt extract syrup has about 20% water content, and the dry malt extract is well...dry. It is used in different proportions as well. If a recipe calls for 7 lbs of malt extract syrup, you can substitute about 5 lbs of dry malt extract to make the same beer.
3/19/2009 – In your opinion which is better LME or DME? I've done a few of your kits (they're great!) now I want to try a recipe beer from scratch...
Response From Homebrew Heaven: LME (liquid malt extract syrup) and DME (dry malt extract powder) are exactly the same (in terms of quality), in my opinion. The only real difference is that LME contains about 20% water. Any recipe can be "adjusted" accordingly to obtain the same starting gravity.LME can also discolor somewhat with prolonged storage. DME does not. . . .
2/28/2009 – I have never tried corn sugar for the other two pounds needed for the kit, what is the taste difference? I usally use dry malt.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Your beer will taste less "malty" and have more pronounced hop bitterness. Some would say that corn sugar will produce a cider-like "twang", if that makes sense. It's hard to describe flavors...Your beer will also be lighter in color and have slightly more alcohol.
1/2/2009 – what is included here? what else would i need?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: As far as ingredients, you'll also need to add some fermentables. We like light dry malt extract (3 lbs) but you can also use corn sugar. Reserve about a cup for when you bottle. You'll also need some water...Standard brewing equipment is used (brewpot, fermenter, siphon hose, capper, caps etc).
5/22/2008 – I have in the past brewed my own beer but now I am having trouble. I can not find the hopped malt I used to use. Coopers or Muntons. And so many yeast brands. Help a old retired man. Thank you.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: I know how it is to be old! Yes, there are many more varieties of EVERYTHING now. You should be able to click on this link, and it will take you to both Cooper's and Munton's Malt Extract Kits. Another coupleof links are below leading you to the familiar yeasts.As for yeast, many of these "kits" come with the yeast. Check the descriptions. . . .
1/26/2008 – I live about an hour (if traffic is good) from the address on your website. Do you have an actual store or is everything here based solely online?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, we have an actual brick-and-mortar store in Everett, WA. People actually walk in and buy stuff!Our address is:Homebrew Heaven9121 Evergreen WayEverett, WA 98204Heck, you can actually call us on the phone, too! It's 425-355-8865. A person will actually answer as long as it's business hours!
5/13/2007 – I've just made Coopers India Pale Ale. the person told me to buy 500g of dry malt extract and 2.5Ibs of corn sugar... can i mix 500gr of the malt extract plus 2Lbs of sugar together?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: You didn't get it from us. Why not ask "the person"?
1/28/2007 – I bought 2- 3.75lb. cans Coopers Draught Ale. I want to brew a 5 gallon batch. Am I correct that I will use 1 full can of the malt extract and 2 lbs. more out of the 2nd can? Would that be about right or should I use 2 lbs. of corn sugar instead? Which is better?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Not usually. You see the Cooper's "kits", like this one, are hopped malt extracts. If you add more from the 2nd can, you are also adding more hops. Most people (and this is how the recipe reads) add 2 lbs to 2.5 lbs of corn sugar to one can of extract. As far as the BEST way to do it (in my not so humble opinion), is to use dry malt . . .
11/5/2006 – I live in Seattle, can I come and pick up the bottles in Everett? Do you have a "brick and mortar" store?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: You sure can. It is literally made of bricks and mortar, in South Everett. Our address is:Homebrew Heaven9121 Evergreen WayEverett, WA 98204425-355-8865Hours are 10am-6:30pm Monday-Friday and 10am-5pm on Saturdaysand 10am-3pm on Sundays
5/28/2005 – what is the approximate alcohol content of these Cooper kits?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: It depends how much sugar you add to them. The normal amount is about 2 lbs. Doing that, you end up with about 4.5-5% alcohol.
4/9/2005 – Do you sell Dark Malt extract? I didn't see it on your website.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes; we sell it in bulk form as well as in cans. Here is a link to the bulk malt extract.The various brands of canned dark malt extracts are in the Malt Extracts (canned) category.
3/31/2005 – Can I use half a can (2.5 gallons) and save the other half for later, or will this malt spoil if not used after opening.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: It will last for some time, IF you seal it up well, and refrigerate it.
2/1/2005 – Where can I buy the hops to brew the beer? I live in Plainview, Texas....would love to brew my own. But, I need the ingredients to brew it. will buy your equipment, so....where can I buy the goodies to brew it?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Right here! We have a large selection of hops, yeasts, grains and everything you need in the way of ingredients. Here is a link:A good way to get started is to choose one of our ingredient (recipe) kits. They get you started the right way!
3/13/2004 – Will one of these can kits work to make a three gal. batch with out adding more extract?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes. You might find it a bit "hoppy", because the hops are formulated for a 5 gallon batch. Many people like it that way, however.
2/2/2004 – How much beer will this can (and the others) typically yield?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: They typically make 5 U.S. gallons, which is equivalent to about fifty two 12 oz. beers. Usually, you must add some additional corn sugar, or malt extract, per the recipe.
12/7/2003 – how many gallons do these cans make?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Most are intended to make 5 gallons, when you use one can and about 2 lbs of either dry malt extract or corn sugar. When doing this, you should use a hopped malt extract.
10/18/2003 – I have never done this before but would like to buy this product what type of container would I need to make this beer & are there instructions included with this product? or would I need more iteams to make this beer.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: You will need a brewing equipment kit to ferment and bottle the beer. You can find them on our website or from the link below
