Seems low on fermentables for a 5 gallon batch. Try running the numbers through Hopville or Tastybrew, and see what you get.

If this all came as a kit then just brew it.

You can buy the kit package that includes the recommended fermentables and carbonation drops.

That, or simply buy LME and Dextrose.

The recommendations by Coopers are to add 500g of LME and 300g of Dextrose to their Irish Stout kit.

The package will include more of each of the fermentables than you will need as well as carbonation drops for bottling. Buying the fermentables separately will also most likely net you more than you need. That's fine though. Use some in upcoming batches.

The can of stout should include the yeast with or without the package deal.

Lastly, I don't think Coopers makes a spray malt. I've never seen their brand anyway.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Ron. Where abouts in the UK could I buy this kit from please. So I only need about 800g of additional sugars instead if 1.3 kgs?

I have no idea on where to get it in the United Kingdom. Sorry. I would suggest checking brew supply places over there or the internet. There might even be some European vendors listed on this site. I live in the U.S. and order all my stuff from here.

As for the amounts, I checked it on two websites for you and they both have the same thing. One was Coopers brewery site and the other was the U.S. distributor for their DIY products.

Sorry I can't be of more help on this.

Bottom line - it'll make a good beer. But you could up the DME a pound or so to get you up to the 1.056 or so range which is more appropriate for a stout. I'm assuming you're talking 5 imperial gallons, so 6 US gallons.

If you are happy at the 4.3% ABV, then don't worry and have at it.

Cheers!

Yeah,the cooper's cans are intended for 6 gallon batches. From the markings on my bottling bucket,5 US gallons = 19L,or 1/4 gallon less than 4.5 Imperial gallons. 4.5 imp gallons = 20L.
The 6 gallons that cooper's lists for their cans is 23L,or 6.072 US gallons.
So if you brew it to 5 US gallons instead of 6G,then your gravity would be a bit higher. It would be a bit better with the ingredient amounts you're planning.
