Default Coopers stout

Hello there has anyone made a irish stout from coopers before?
Just wondering because i am making a 6 gallon batch of the stuff and just wondering if anyone has tasted it before.
It will be made if nothing goes wrong with the fermentation stage.
As stated in my other thread that i have started.

On the fifth day and only little to non activity at the airlock, dont know if its done fermenting or not since its only the fifth day.

Yes.
Tastes good.

Your airlock cannot tell you if fermentation is done, only your hydrometer.

I tasted a regular stout from coopers, pretty good, gets better when bottled for a few months!

Still feels like im not making beer with these coopers cans... lol

As Vic has already stated the airlock is not the end-all be-all indicator when it comes to fermentation. That's why it is so important to take an accurate gravity reading just before you pitch your yeast.

I am a new brewer myself and I felt I was pretty patient. But I just opened a bottle of my Bavarian Wheat that has been sitting in my basement closet conditioning for over 3 weeks now and the beer is so much better than it was at 2 weeks in the bottle (just like the veteran brewers here have said it would). Let your beer do it's thing and not worry over it.

Take your original gravity and final gravity numbers and punch them in here... (I have not used this calculator, I just googled it... someone may know of a better one?!?)

Just did one today for the OL, she likes those Coopers kit beers. Added 1.5 lbs of pilsner malt and 8 oz of corn sugar. Always turns out great and only takes a half hour to make. As I type it is fermenting like a mofo, the yeast provided with the can takes off super fast/ and is very tolerant to high temps.
