    This kit has almost everything you need (including yeast and directions) to make a stout that equals Guinness and exceeds the quality of some stuff sold as stout. You add plain old store-bought sugar and water. The kit includes directions, but the directions actually make it sound as if making brew is harder than it really is. I combined the contents of the can with five gallons of pure bottled water, added sugar and the yeast that came with the kit, and mixed thoroughly (emphasize “mix thoroughly”); The directions call for hot or boiled water, but room temperature water works just as well as long as you mix sugar, yeast, and the contents of the can thoroughly. Then I allowed it to ferment at room temperature for a week. The result was a tasty, satisfying brew. You could bottle the brew after fermentation, but I pour it right out of the gallon jugs it was brewed in. The dregs stay reliably on the bottom of the bottle. Cheers! (P.S.–no, I do not work for the company that sells this stuff. I’m just an old hippie who likes his booze.)

    First note: there is conflicting info regarding which “Brew Enhancer” that Coopers recommends be used with this particular extract. You should be using Brew Enhancer 2, which Coopers themselves recommends on their site. I used Brew Enhancer 1 based on the bum advice for this product on Amazon, and though it certainly didn’t ruin the beer, it contains no dry malt extract and thus doesn’t produce the mouthfeel that is traditionally associated with a stout.

    Beyond that, this is a pretty solid pre-hopped stout extract. A lot of people use it as a base for other recipes, but I just followed the included instructions for the most part. Notable screw ups:

    1) I boiled the extract. This was a mistake. Traditionally, many homebrewers insist on boiling their extract, but opinions are changing on this. You DEFINITELY SHOULD NOT boil pre-hopped extract like this one. You risk boiling off some/all of the hop characteristics. The instructions that come with the kit say only to boil the water and sugar (or the Coopers Brew Enchancer should you go that route)…follow them. They are right.
    2) I screwed up my water temps (partially due to boiling more materials than I should have) and ended up pitching the yeast into the wort at 90F. While this is in the tolerable range for the Coopers yeast (barely), it produced strong estery (almost raisin-like) flavors. I’d recommend making sure the wort is at 70F-75F, even if the instructions say 80F is still within the “good” range, unless you want a bit of fruitiness.

    Fermentation stopped after about 9 days in the 68F-72F range. I then bottled, and just so I could try more of Coopers’ stuff, I used their carbonation drops. After a week the beer was nice and carbed. Just remember to give the bottles a good turning/shake a little while after you cap them, so the sugar from the dissolved drops distributes in the bottle a bit.

    I cracked one open after that first week in the bottle. As I said before, the beer came out with strong raisin/wine-like flavors likely due to the high temperatures when I pitched the yeast (it takes a loooong time for 6 gallons of wort to cool down at room temperature!). I gave the bottles more time to sit…

    FINAL BEER VERDICT: The brew has been bottle-conditioning for over a month now, and the raisin-flavors have subsided considerably. It now *really* tastes like a dry black lager. Not great, but very drinkable. It would be a bit better if the mouthfeel and head (of which there is plenty) were a bit more stout-like.

    Again, I STRONGLY recommend anyone who goes by the included kit recipe to use the Coopers Brew Enhancer 2 or DME (dry malt extract)…NOT the Brew Enhancer 1. It should result in a nice solid stout. Also…aside from a few test bottles, give the bottled brew a few weeks at room temperature to condition. It makes a HUGE difference.

    As for the Coopers Stout extract itself, it seems like a good product and I could see myself using it as basis for more elaborate stout recipes in the future.

    Just exactly as another reviewer stated, the can was dented really bad and is a wonder I was even able to open it with a can opener. The sides, top and bottom lips were dented badly. I HIGHLY DOUBT I will be buying from this seller again.
