This BDF recipe pack is our clone of Heineken. The BDF Heineken clone is a light refreshing drop sure to quench the biggest of thirsts. Best enjoyed all year round.

Included in the recipe pack is:

Cooper’s International – European Lager

Cooper’s Malt – pale malt

Lager yeast

Dry enzyme

20g fuggles hops


Clean and sanitise all equipment i.e. fermenter, spoon, can opener etc.

Pour the contents of the extract cans into a 30L fermenter. Rinse the remaining extract out with roughly 2 litres of hot water & add to fermenter. Stir till evenly distributed.

Top fermenter up to 23L using hot or cold water to get the required fermentation temperature (15-18c). Mix well.

At this point you have the option to take a gravity reading and note it.

Pitch yeast and dry enzyme over the top of the wort. Mix thoroughly.

Seal up fermenter, add airlock and allow to ferment. On day 6 of fermentation sprinkle hop pellets over the top of beer.

Take gravity readings on day 9 -10 onwards to confirm fermentation has completed.

If the gravity has stabilised the beer is ready to be bottled/kegged. Allow to condition for 4 weeks if bottling. If kegging, then check out our kegging guide here. Lastly don’t forget to drink responsibly and often.
