Coopers refills in Basic Brewing Techniques Posted September 6, 2012 "ba1980" post=284018 said:What is the best way to split it between 2 lbks? Do I measure it out or do I dump the wort directly into the lbk and hope my guesstimate is right?I mark the side of the can. Trying to pour off into a large cup is real messy.If you are using DME and no hops, then heat the water to almost boil add the DME stir until dissolved then, Pour the HME in to the hot water (NOT the keg)Just eyeball it. Cover the can with plastic wrap and a rubber band. Store in fridge for the next batch.If you use LME add both to the hot water at the same time. No boil is needed if you are not adding hops. I heat water to almost a boil temp 210*These cans are hopped for 5 gal with the addition of 2 pds of LME/DME or sugar. For the LBK at 2.4 gal, I would add 1.5pnd DME or one pnd LME to half a can of the HME.
