    Splendid Stout
    Review by Rosson 01/08/2016
    This is the first stout kit i have used. I added an extra 1kg of DME to the ingredients. The stout fermented within 5 days and tasted great during bottling.

    Coopers Stout Variation
    Review by Jasonon 01/09/2015
    Used Coopers ME Dark with this one and 4oz of Dark sugar, instead of the kit plus sugar. Brewed for 2 weeks and was surprised to find that it was ready just 4 days after bottling. A rich choc flavour and a great head. This was supposed to last me through Christmas but I don't think it will somehow!! I now prime for bottling in a separate bin adding a sugar solution. Not only is this easier than adding sugar to bottles, I think that the end result is beyond comparison. Forget priming drops though as they make brews too fizzy.

    Good stout
    Review by fuddled foxon 19/07/2015
    I have made this a number of ways.
    Made straight with brew enhancer. Came out well with a nice roasty flavour but not as full on as I would like. Also a little thin for a stout Better made to 20 litres instead of 23l.
    Made to 20L with brew enhancer and a cup coffee. Much more to my taste with a richer flavour from the coffee.
    Ditches stout. Google Ditches stout as this is THE way to make coopers stout.
    Think I make this ala Ditch but add some coffee as well the next time I brew this kit.

    Extremely impressive
    Review by Nathanon 29/11/2013
    Brewed with Coopers 1.5kg DME and 1.4kg of honey and conditioned with one carbonation drop. After three weeks this tastes delicious. Even my wife has glass every evening and she doesn't normally drink. Just ordered some more because for some reason it seems to be disappearing far too quickly....

    Amazing!!!
    Review by Rob Lon 11/09/2013
    This was my first attempt at 'beer' after many years making wine. Chose this one based on the reviews here, but was a little sceptical.
    The results after only 2 weeks priming were amazing I couldn't believe this was home brew, It's much better than Guinness, I'm hooked and can't wait for my next batch to be ready.
    I added 1KG of dark spray malt and found that 2 carbonation drops gave it a feel more like Guinness original but with more flavour, 1 drop came out more like draught G.
    Anyway I've found my perfect brew and now must get a production line going so I don't run out.
    If you have not tried this yet, and you like stout, go for it, you won't be disappointed.

    Great starter kit for bitter chocolate stout
    Review by Smittieon 13/08/2013
    Made twenty litres with one kilo of extra dark spray malt & 300 grams of Chocolate malt crushed. Used 170 grams of brown sugar to condition bottles. Very drinkable after two weeks, brilliant.

    Absolutely first class, top notch, excellent!!!!
    Review by wilfwon 25/07/2013
    I can't recommend this enough. If you like stout then you cannot go wrong with this. It is very easy to make too so you don't have to be an experienced brewer. I made this one with a 1.5kg can of Coopers Dark malt extract and a mug of soft brown sugar and made it to 21 lites instead of 23 but I doubt it would make much difference. It came out at about 4.9 to 5% abv. It tasted super after about 4 weeks in the bottle, but I'm just finishing my last few bottles after about 9 months in the bottle ( takes a lot of will power to leve it that long!) and wow it is just fantastic. It has beautiful coffee/chocolate undertones and a very smooth bitterness but not too bitter, in my opinion this is way better than the popular stout sold in pubs and supermarkets.

    A true classic in the world of brewing
    Review by El Gordoon 07/06/2013
    This is the first kit I ever made whose results were 'better than pub beer'.

    It is truly special. A burnt coffee, malty and slightly fruity taste, which lingers and slowly waves good-bye.

    Your mates will not believe you made this!

    Ferment at 20 degrees, with 1kg spraymalt or even brew enhancer, barrel and drink after 4 weeks. It is that easy.

    A rival to the Dublin Export!
    Review by Leeon 14/04/2013
    A very nice brew achieved 5.2% ABV, some what addictive, going to try the Coopers Selection Irish Stout soon and will compare my verdict on the two.
    I really can't fault this stout, a lovely drink much enjoyed and well worth the effort.

    Outstanding Stout Kit
    Review by Gordonon 30/03/2013
    This was my 3rd attempt at a brew after many years....what can I say, outstanding results!

    Simply used 1kg of brewing sugar and the kit itself, conditioned in the barrel for 4 weeks before the first taste and I was very impressed!
    8 weeks in the barrel now and I'm afraid its nearly gone, could not leave it alone!

    A really lovely creamy head stout with great colour, taste and body.
    Certainly recommended for the beginner, you just can't go wrong!

    Favourite kit to date
    Review by Speccyon 27/02/2013
    I went for 1kg of dark spraymalt and 250g of molasses sugar and brewed to 21 litres, ending up at about 4.5%. Absolutely fantastic! It tasted great straight from the FV, a couple of weeks later it was spot-on, and the couple of bottles that survived to the 8-week mark had mellowed beautifully.

    I messed up my batch priming (didn't dissolve the sugar in enough water, so it turned to syrup and sank to the bottom of the barrel) so the bottles ended up pretty flat, but, actually, that suited the beer very well and I think I'll prime sparingly when doing my next batch - which will be soon, I hope.

    Great even with a less than perfect brew
    Review by divers69on 01/02/2013
    This brew came out looking great, with a superb colour and lasting thick creamy head. Unfortunately a slight infection (probably flies, and no fault of the product) meant that it had a very slight acidy smell and taste that made it undrinkable (just). We rescued it by adding a shot of espresso and some honey. Lovely !

    I love this stuff !
    Review by Neilon 04/12/2012
    This stout is great if made as per instructions,
    but it gets sooo much better if you experiment a little,
    I have made this kit to 20 litres instead of the recommended 23 and thats a great improvement,
    i've also made to 20 litres with a mug full of molasses cane sugar and 1 kilo of extra dark spraymalt ... just incredible !
    my latest was to again make to 20 litres, 1 kilo of extra dark, but with a tin of dark treacle (454gm ) thrown in as well, totally awesome !

    Epic!
    Review by Philipon 03/12/2012
    Okay, so this is one of the tin kits I still do today after moving to extract/AG.

    Why? Because it's epic. Simple as that, for a tin kit, ( as a lot of the coopers ones ) it's epic.

    Now, something to watch out for if your new to brewing - make sure you measure your fermentation bucket, work out the litres by using a jug, as the markings on the side are almost always wrong, and usually, 23 litres you think your putting is, is actually 24-25.

    Now I mention this because it was not until I moved to all grain brewing that I callibrated my fermenation bucket, and it was out, so all the tins I'd made in the past had been slightly watered down, if your OG reading is always lower than the usual expected 1.040 (as usual on these kits) then that's a sign your putting to much water in.

    Anyway, since the calibration, I've done this kit recently, and I can say I thought it tasted nice last time, but this time it's amazing, It's a really nice stout and if you like Guinness it's pretty near in terms of taste, it tastes nice after around 2 weeks in the bottle, but is perfectly good from 3 weeks on.

    Also, even after calibration, I made this at 22 litres instead of 23, defo worth it.

    Review by Gunnerholicon 04/10/2012
    I made this kit with dark dry malt extract and 500g of Demerara cane sugar and I was so impressed with the results, this is about the best Coopers kit I have made, I am currently brewing the Irish Stout kit to compare the difference in flavour but if its anything like this it'll be a cracker. So rich and satisfying, a great drink to have on a cold winters evening sat in front of the fire. Highly recommended! 4/5

    Amazing!
    Review by Blamongeon 23/03/2012
    So I'm still new to home brewing, but I thought I would try this for my second effort, especially as a big fan of the Guinness. After seeing some great you tube videos on brewing (Craig Tube), I figured I would have a little experiment and try a different sugar to the usual - and went with - wait for it - Molasses... This batch took about 7 or so days to settle, as expected, and the reading was constant. Even trying this at this point produced a "wow!". Half of the batch I put into bottles, and half of these I used some more Molasses to do a secondary ferment, the rest of the bottles I just poured the Stout straight in. The other half of the batch I put into the keg, with more of the sugar. I thing the Molasses is so strong you don't need to use it for a secondary IMHO, and the taste adds a nice tang to the usual Guinness taste, very deep, sweet, and with a depth added to it that's actually difficult to put your finger on - very good for something that's just a little different to the norm. I will do this Stout again, though will probably use demerara sugar instead as the Molasses can be a little overbearing; but I have a few more experiments to explore first before I come back to this. Bottom line though, a quality brew that's very worth it if you like the Guinness, and sorry for the waffle...

    Review by UremaWon 12/03/2012
    I have 5 gallons conditioning at the moment, but i had a cheeky taste straight out of the FV at 2 wks old and it already tastes great. It should be fantastic quality in a few weeks time.

    Make sure you only fill the FV up to 18 litres for the first week or the foam WILL explode out the top! Wrap an old towel round the FV too, just in case.

    Excellent, malty, complex - One of the best.
    Review by Philon 16/02/2011
    I made this using 33% brewing sugar, 33% medium malt extract and 33% dark, and it is fantastic. Its a deep and complex flavour, with a very dark red colour. Very easy to drink, and about 5%. I will be making more when it is gone. This is about the best stout I've ever tasted, including the famous brewery ones. This one is so much less bitter. The head was a little disappointing, and doesn't last long, but the water up here is very soft, and I probably under did it with the burtonising salts.

    made this with 500g extra dark spraymalt and 500g sugar - bottled for 8 weeks - fantastic smooth pint. Maybe better on 32 pints but for this price who can complain - and I'm greedy so I want 40 pints - brewing this constantly to meet demand

    Just like Guinness (after)
    Review by JumpSteveon 29/04/2010
    I made this kit as instructed to, but with a few additions to make a lovely Guinness clone. First we start with taking a can of Guinness draught, opening it and pour it into a tupperware box, seal it and leave it for 1 month! (yep). This produces a great sour taste just like the black stuff. On brew day boil this “mature” Guinness with 1kg of brown sugar and 1 litre of water for 20 mins (make sure there is no mould or you will get sick!) Then add this to the Coopers Stout and 23 litres of water, pitch blah blah blah..... After about 6 weeks in the bottle, the babies are ready to be popped. Enjoy!
