Here's the plan:
Can of Cooper's Dark Ale
3lbs of DME
Windsor Brewers yeast
Ferment for three weeks, bottle condition for two.
How does that sound?

Just starting out!
Sounds good, you can probably get away with two weeks of fermentation. Check you gravity after two weeks and I bet you'll be good 2 go. Good luck and have fun with it!!
If only I could quit my job, get the two year old twins to carry a carboy, I'd brew everyday!!!
Did this coopers kit with 3lbs of Lme and it finished at 10 days 68f-72f was one of my favorite kits so far.
What type of hops are you using?
I would leave it in the bottle for three weeks instead of two. The Coopers kits I have used tasted much better with the extra week of bottle conditioning.
Otherwise, good luck and please share your thoughts on the Dark Ale once it's finished.
And I kegged it not bottled. Knew from day one bottles weren't for me. Pain in arse. Force carb and drank it !
