Just to add that I've got a Coopers lager going next door to the stout. After almost the same period of time in the FV, this morning is the first time its not pushing out CO2. That one has been bubbling happily throughout. Mind, it did have a fly in it.

I've bottled the stout.

I put a tiny bit of sugar in the 500ml bottles, and nowt in the 330ml bottles. Fingers crossed.

Why little or no priming sugar?
It's normal to add about one half tsp sugar per 500ml bottle for stouts to get get the right level of carbonation, assuming the primary has finished.

That's about what I put in the 500mls.

I'll just see how the little bottles turn out.
