  • Ale yeast ( the brand of yeast doesn't really matter, use whatever you prefer)

**Before hand, measure 20 litres ( 5.28 U.S. Gallons) of cold water into a fermentation pale. If you prefer a stronger lager, you can alter the amount of water by 2 or so litres.**

-Bring 2 Litres ( 1/2 U.S. Gallon) to a boil
-Once boiled add 1 Coopers Lager Extract kit and stir until dissolved.
-Removed 1/2 a cup of the 1 kg (2.2 lbs) of sugar, as you wont be needing it.
-Pour the rest of the sugar into the mixture and stir until dissolved.
-Add 1/2 cup of Honey and again, Stir until dissolved
- Add the boiling mixture to the pale of cold water and stir.
-Add yeast.

Bottling/ Carbonation.

-Transfer the beer into a second fermentation pale( it wont be fermenting in this pale, it is just to separate it from the large amount of sediment in the primary fermenter.)
-mix the 3/4 cup of sugar(s) with 3/4 cup of water and stir until a syrup is formed.
-Add to the beer, and bottle.

**Syphon by putting water in the hose closer to the end the beer is going to pour into the bottle, place the other end into the beer, and let go. This is a safer alternative to just sucking with your mouth, because It is more prone to spoilage when the yeast is not active.**

-Refridgerate for a few hours and Enjoy : )


there may be a slight yeast sediment at the bottom of each bottle, but this is harmless.
