Might add some more, this recipe is very heavy, so the chocolate flavour might not come out as much, it has a more roasted flavour about it, I've added 2 more ltrs of water to this one to tone it down a tad to see if the chocolate flavour is a bit more noticable.

I'm also not using Coopers this time but Wal's from Country Brewer, hopefuly it will turn out OK.

Atm I have a cross between an amber ale and a dark ale brewing:

1 Tin Real Ale
1 Tin Amber Malt
1 Tin Dark Malt
250g white sugar
150g brown sugar
Lots of hops added cold st start of ferment.

Coopers and Safale yeast, though last night I pitched in some champagne yeast to finish it off.

These worked well for me.

1 tin Cooper's Stout
1 tin Cooper's Real Ale
2 kgs. raw sugar
1 kg. rich brown sugar
top up to total 30 litres.
A strong lighter tasting stout. Good as a summer drink for stout fanciers.

1 tin Cooper's Stout
1 kg. raw sugar
1 kg. rich brown sugar
top up to 24 litres
A strong heavy rich tasting stout.

2 tins Cooper's Stout
no added sugar
top up to 24 litres
A medium strength very rich heavy stout for cold nights.

1 tin Cooper's Real Ale
1 kg. raw sugar
0.5 kg. rich brown sugar
top up to 24 litres
This is a delightful strong dark ale. I have no idea why such a small difference in the recipe worked so well. Just about my favourite home brew.

1 tin Cooper's Stout.
1 kg raw sugar
1 tin treacle
top up to 24 litres
A rich heavy medium strength stout.

Bottled this brew last night, first time I've bottled a brew in 3yrs I remember why I got a keg system now:mad:

I hope it turns out OK, there were a lot of chunky bits in the bottom of the cans I used, don't think they were very fresh from the brewer.

The keg Im into at the moment is great.
Coopers stout brew tin.(the quality one,not the regular version)
2kg of dark beer sugars mix
400gm Bickfords chocolate topping.
Supplied yeast and a blue Saffale packet.
The Stout is exceptionally smooth,has quite a heavy texture(not quite soup),certainly can taste the chocolate.
Judging by the warm "feeling" after 2 pints,its up there alcahol wise.
This brew is around 6 weeks old.
Would rate as the best Ive made.
