Default Coopers irish stout

Afternoon all,

For my next batch i want to brew an Irish stout.

I have put together a little recipe and was wondering if anybody would add or take anything away from it.

Coopers Irish stout beer kit
4lbs Light dry malt extract
1 KG dextrose
2 teaspoons brown sugar
500g Chocolate malt extract
Safale us-05 Yeast.

Would i need more yeast to make a 5 gallon batch?

And suggestions is very welcome.

Thanks,

Sounds like a decent stout, I like that you added in the chocolate and not roasted, I like them to be in balance. The yeast will work fine, I like using Nottingham for stouts, but they are both great yeasts.

How does it turn out? I want to do something similar and add some smoked malt.

I've done this kit with half pound smoked malt. Turned out great but next time I will do a whole pound or more for more smoke flavor.

...not a fan of smoked beer, personally. I had a friend brew the Irish Stout and the hops are firm in that kit. I like the chocolate and brown sugar to soften that hop kick a bit. I like the Nottingham yeast as well (for a dry selection) but S05 is good too. You shouldn't need more than one pack for 5 gallons.

Good luck!
