Grains were placed in sterilised stockings and heated in 15 ltrs water to near boiling. Grains then transferred to lauter tun and sparged with treated water at 24c (75f).The runoff (approx 12ltrs) was mixed with the balance of the 15ltrs together with the malt extracts and boiled for 1 1/2 hrs. Pitched the coopers yeast and fermentation continued for 14 days. The red wine yeast was used to complete the job and took another 10 days.. I then racked to another fermentor and added the dry hops in a stocking. Fermentation continued for 21 days. I used 375ml bottles but enough priming sugar for a 500ml bottle.
