Default Coopers IBrewmaster Irish Stout Recipe?

I recently picked a can of Coopers Brewmaster Irish Stout Extract up at my LHS. I got it for a good price.... I think ($15.00). Does this make a good dry irish stout? Can you rate it in taste from Guinness (Draught Style) to Murphy's to Beamish. Which of these does it taste like. I wouldn't mind if it tasted like any of them!!!

RECIPE REQUEST X's 2
If it doesn't taste like any of those, how can I use this product and get a stout similar to any of those three.

Oh, and I'd also like to brew a Irish red ale .... toffee and caramel like Caffreys Irish Ale

Thanks

Yeah, well I saw a case sitting there. The owner said he special ordered it for a lady, he said she never came and got it. He said I could have a can for $15.00, I said ok. If its good I wished he offered more.

I've used a couple of their other cans, and they've turned out well (although not really perfectly in style).

I've heard that the stout is good, but more of just a dark ale... not as flavorful or "thick".

If you use ONLY corn sugar, you will get a very dry, lightly flavored stout. I would use at least a bit of DME. I've used a mixture of DME and corn sugar before, as well as the package AHS sells (maltodextrin, DME, corn sugar) and they turned out well.

The recipe says I should use this is the Copper Brewmaster Irish Stout not the Cooper Stout

1 can Coopers Irish Stout wort concentrate (already hopped)
water
yeast
500 g. of light DME
300 g. Dextrose/sugar (is maltodextrin the same thing?)

Should I add anything else to get a stout like any of the three I mentioned above.

Is maltodextrin corn sugar?

I want stout not brown ale

"copper brewmaster irish stout" is just a misspelling of "cooper brewmaster irish stout" the same thing I was referring to.

That's the "standard" on the can, and from what I've heard (and my experience with their other kits) it will produce a good stout if made well. Definitely use a different yeast though, theirs sucks. Dextrose is NOT maltodextrine, dextrose is just there to boost the ABV without effecting flavor.

Thanks for the reply!

oops... yeah I did spell that wrong huh?


I guess I was just trying to clarify the difference between two cooper products one being the Irish stout and the other being just stout.

Thanks for answering my questions

don't use either one, if you want a FULL bodied THICK beer, use 2# of DME or LME instead of sugar. if you want it somewhere in between use 1/2 corn sugar/maltodextrin/brown sugar/ etc etc and 1/2 DME

My LHBS actually recomends using 2 cans of the coopers kit for a 5 gallon batch. Kind of expensive if you ask me.

So.....

If thickness is what I prefer then just add the DME in place of the Dextrose?

I do like a thick stout.

I can't wait to make this!!
