I would of sent GMK a Pm but i am not at my normal E-mail address computer. Anyway my COOPER SPARKLNG ALE started at 1053 and is now steady at 1015 after 2 weeks. Is this normal for this beer? I did it as per the recipe ie. the kit + 1.5 of light malt extract + 500 of malt powder + 300 of DEX. Just not sure how low it will go?

Good Day
1.015 is high for the style but at about 71% ADA it is in the range for the yeast given the ingredients. It might be a bit malty and full bodied for style but should be AOK. If bolk priming prime with 120 to 140 gms Sugar ( 150-160 gms dex) or about 4 gms per long neck.

I concur with Barry's comments but ....

we cold conditioned ours for 4 weeks in the fridge...this may reduce the fg a bit more. When you bulk prime just add a little less sugar...

Taste after 2 weeks in CC as you might want to dry hop with POR....
