    Coopers want people to keep thinking that - it makes it seem "special" and "home made" - however, it isn't bottle conditioned. Multiple tests done by the "big 2" confirmed that the yeast added at bottling stage had zero affect on the actual content. However, Coopers is known for this, so why change it.

    Interesting. Do you have any links to any of this? I'd love to put it up on the coopers forum and see what they say over there.

    Sorry, my info comes from a family member who was one of the scientist/brewers that did the testing

    Rofl....leave the trolls under the bridge (ignore list) where they belong. Time to move along back to reasonable discussion.

    lol, say anything "bad" about coopers = you must be a troll. I would expect better from an adult

    For the price Coopers sells at, I would take any of the following before touching it
    * Fat Yak
    * Mountain Goat
    * Gage Roads


    But if you like boring, plain beer - drink up your coopers PA.....

    Keen to hear some suggestions from people, looking to try some new brews. I'm generally a fan of pale ale's and have been drinking lazy yak and kosciuszko for the past few months, enjoyed some stone & wood at a recent wedding but unfortunately its not as available as id like and im hoping there are some clear contenders to mix it up a bit!

    Also interested in tasting some decent entry stouts, any suggestions for a stout noob??

    Lots of good stout around, although it's not particularly marketable at this time of year. I've mostly been drinking SA locals, so I'm not sure what gets national distribution.

    Unfortunately the only two favourites I can think of from other states are Imperial Stouts, probably not the first choice for a "stout noob" (10%+ ABV), but I'll name them anyhow - Colonial Inquest, and Hawkers Imperial Stout.

    Here in SA I've enjoyed the Pirate Life Stout, Fox Hat Phat Mongrel and Full Mongrel, Big Shed x Doctors Orders Dr Shedlove, Prancing Pony Magic Carpet Midnight Ride, Mismatch Chocolate Stout, CVBC Extra Stout, BVB Chocolate Coffee Stout....honestly it's been a while since I had a stout I didn't like (although I can think of one, Woolshed's Bunyip)
