well you'll need double the number of coats so you'll need 10l!
I love this paint. Bought lots when we had the whole house skimmed. Yes it takes lots of coats but the finish is beautiful. You dont get patchy areas even if you go over 1 area too much. When kids decided to draw on walls and run their hands along the walls i decided to take short cut and use screwfix paint. Yes it was thick but it wasnt smooth. Just last month i repainted one of the bedrooms and used this paint again. And I'm loving the finish

Just remember to do the edges and corners with paint brush first

2 coats is all that is required with this emulsion. I use it on my ceilings and I smoke like a lum.

Classy
Great price, living room walls are ready for a touch up!
As it is so watery it might be ok for priming new plaster undiluted but not for much else.:{
I used this on a freshly plastered surface and it is AWFUL. Avoid it like the plague. Thin, poor pigmentation and goes on so patchy. It took me four neat coats before it even started to look like it had covered and even after that I had to spot patch loads in.
10L of milk. will take 3-4 coats on fresh plaster and it's so thin you cant water down for the mist coat. Armstead is only a couple of quid more and will only need a mist coat and a top coat.

Disagree with most comments. I’ve used this on freshly plastered walls for the mist coat and then 2 proper coats. Gives a really nice finish. Just in time to stock up for my loft conversion! Thanks op

Have used this paint previously. Never again- terrible coverage!
I’ve always used this paint. It’s great. Highly recommend.
B and Q are doing the same deal with the 10ltr in the Leyland brand

Off the back of this comment; if you're painting over freshly plastered wall, you need to thin the paint with some water otherwise it can cause the paint to dry and flake (due to the plaster sucking up the moisture from the paint).

About 20% - 30% water mixed in I found was a sweet spot for me.

You are not supposed to use this neat on freshly plastered walls. If you do use it, the first coat should be thinned out with water.

If you look at the contents of the 10l tub it looks like the people at Crown have beaten you to it.(annoyed)
Used this and Dulux, Dulux was better but cost more, this was watery

I painted all the ceilings in my house with this Crown paint 3.5 years ago. I found it a very good paint, just about as good as Dulux. It was also quite thick and covers well.

Unfortunately you need to let the plaster dry out naturally .The longer you leave it the better but we live in a age where people want it looking great asap and then wonder why it flakes off later .Yes thin the paint down on 1st coat but that doesn't make up for letting it dry out properly.
