Fill 5 gallon pale with 20 litres of cool water, and bring 2 litres of water to a boil in a 2 gallon pot (Just to ensure that it wont boil over and make a sticky molasesy delicious mess) pull out your coffee maker and make 4 cups of coffee. add coopers dark ale hopped malt extract to the boiling water, and stir untill dissolved. add 1 kg. of white sugar. be sure to stir constantly to ensure it doesent stick and burn and taste awfull. Once your coffee is finished, add it to the boiling mixture. I ran a strainer of coffee beans through it for extra oompf, but you don't need to. once everything is dissolved, and then add it to the 5 gallons. stir untill mixed, and add yeast, stir again to wake up the yeast.
