Coopers Selection - Irish Stout Kit

Latest and quite possibly the last beer kit (all grain DIY brewery nearly finished) is now in the fermenter and from the Coopers selection range, an Irish Stout. This kit was a bundled deal which came with the Irish Stout Beer Kit at a total cost of £20.39, 500g light spraymalt, brewing sugar and carbonation drops. I used the spraymalt in this batch and saved the sugar for the John Bull IPA I brewed earlier in the year.

The stout is described as “robust, full-flavoured Stout”, full description:

Thomas Coopers Selection Range – Irish Stout
A rich, dark brew displaying coffee, chocolate and licorice aromatics, roasty bitter notes with a dry finish. Thomas Coopers Irish Stout is an authentic recipe containing a blend of malted barley, roasted barley, flaked barley and hops.

Here it is in the fermenter just after the yeast was added. The brew is made upto 23 litres and pitched the yeast at 21c, OG was 1.034, i predict a 4-5% ABV on this batch.
