Default Cooper's Dark Ale With DME

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?

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!!

Brian,

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.
