Hey Wyo,

It really is a good drop after 6 months in a bottle. It's even better after 10 months (not bottles).

I make mine up to 23L. I believe this converts to 5.5 gallons.

I find the Cooper's ale yeast that comes with the kit goes very well with stouts. Pitch both (or more) packets. Notto would work fine, I'm sure. I've not used it in a stout before.

Thanks for the reply...figures it would be someone from BC..lol. Found the recipe on an Aussie site after a reference here and they seem to love it over there. Seem to do some other things to it but this is the base right? And doing just this will be good as I read?

I might be from BC but I spend a lot of time over in CyberOZ on the Cooper's web site chatting with the blokes downunder.

This recipe really is that easy. Two cans of goo, 23L water, yeast. The real Toucan Stout recipe calls for 1Kg Dextrose but I think this only increases the ABV% to somewhere close to 8%. I'm omiting the dex for my next one.

The other thing the Aussie do is use recultured yeast from the dregs of 6 Cooper's Pale Ale in a starter. This addition makes this beer the closest thing the Cooper's Best Extra Stout which is a nice drop! I've got my sarter going for this weekend!

I just put down my annual Toucan Stout. I went with a can of Cooper's OS Stout and an OS Dark Ale made to 23L with Cooper's re-cultured yeast. Six months or so and she'll be right, mate!

Just made up a batch last night...

1can Coopers Irish Stout
1can Coopers Dark Ale
Pitched both yeast packs
approx. 5.5 gallons of water

Maybe it didnt mix well with the water before I took my hydro reading even though I shook the hell outa it. Still, 1.044 seems low for the OG...Oh well, taste is whats important and it will mix during fermentation. What was your OG and expected FG?

Hey Wyo,

Nice timing. We will be able to compare notes on each brew. I've never tried the Irish Stout. I get can't my hands on one around these parts.

My OG was 1.050 @ 23C. It should finish around 1.013-14.

Good luck!
