Pale beer is one of the most popular beers in Poland, available in every store. Although the BJCP does not recognise full pale beer as a separate beer style, it certainly leads the way in our country.
Full pale beer is a European-style lager similar in taste to Czech Destika or German Helles. Full pale beer is refreshing and capable of quenching thirst quickly.
If you are a fan of this type of beer, try making it yourself. It really isn’t difficult, and the satisfaction is priceless.
The full pale beer kit is a fantastic choice for any beer lover who can easily become a brewer. Home-made beer based on the Coopers hopped malt concentrate with an addition of glucose is an economical way to make as much as 20 litres of your favourite beverage from the top-quality ingredients. Don’t hesitate! Ferment!
Full pale beer is a ’session’ beer ideally suited to be sipped with basically all types of food, except desserts.
It goes well with grilled dishes and pizza :)

Recipe for home-made full pale beer:
1. Rinse the beer making equipment thoroughly with OXI Turbo.
2. Pour water at about 28°C into a glass, add the yeast that is placed under the plastic lid of the can. Hydrate for 15 minutes.
3. Remove the instructions from the can, and then put the can in hot water for about 10 minutes.
4. Pour about 2 L of water into a pot and bring it to the boil.
5. Pour the contents of the can into the pot of water, add 1 kg of glucose and mix thoroughly until the ingredients dissolve.
6. Pour 2 L of cold water and the contents of the pot into the rinsed fermentation vessel, top up with water up to 20 L of volume.
7. Stabilise the temperature at 18-20°C, add the hydrated yeast and stir vigorously.
8. Seal the container tightly and place a fermentation tube* in it.
We recommend a horizontal or angled tube to lower the height of the fermentation vessel, making it easier to place on shelves, racks, or to stack.
9. Let ferment for about 14 days at room temperature.
10. After this time, pour the beer into bottles by decanting it. Add 1 Coopers Carbonation Drops pill or 2.5g of sugar to each 0.5L bottle, seal with a capper. Place the bottles in a dark and warm place.
11. After 2 weeks, the beer is ready to drink. Cheers!
The kit contains:
- 1.7 kg of hermetically sealed Lager hopped malt and a bag of brewer’s yeast,
