This was a recipe tossed together and brewed in an evening after work for a challenge. The stipulation was to use Coopers Real Ale kit and make something unique with it.

This has a very odd flavor profile as you get the fruits, Fuggle hops and a fair bit of unfermented malt tones, and my batch came out with a FG of 1032 (OG was 1056) w/ a Ruby color so it either stalled or the kveik couldn't chew through the extract.

Berry mix used was a 500g bag of grocery store frozed mixed berries (Blueberries, blackberries, cherries, raspberries)


  • Rehydrate DME in 2.5 Gallons of water and boil 20 minutes with Fuggle hops.
  • Add the Coopers extracts and turn off the heat
  • Toss in the frozen fruit stir and let it sit for about 20 mins to cool, top up with water to 5 Gal and transfer to fermenter fruit and all.
  • After 5 days strain/syphon out fruit and transfer to secondary fermenter

    Bottle around 21 days w/ 3.5 Oz of Brown/Golden sugar.

    Gets better as it ages. *Update after 4 months in Bottle it is AMAZING, its like a berry Dubbel, caramel malty, tart fruit, very mild hop.
