TD3 : Tooheys Special Draught With Caramalt

Tooheys Special Draught

Put down in November 2011.

Tasting notes March 2012

Nice Colour

Rich, malty and but with an element a friend described as putrid.


  • Tooheys Special Draught 1.7KG
  • 1.5kg Morgans Caramalt Amber
  • Morgans Pride of Ringwood Finishing Hops

The Tooheys Special Draught kit is already a bit red and dark on it’s own. With the amber malt this will be a fairly dark ale.

The importance of packaging… I just can’t accept that this is “Premium” yeast 🙂
