Ok, this will be my third batch, first is in the secondary, second in the primary, and third is my stout that is on deck. Ok, I bought a "kit" from my LHBS store. This is what was included:
8lbs. (2 cans) Alexanders Amber Liquid Malt extract
1/2 pound Chocolate grain
1/2 pound Black Grain
2.75 OZ Cascade 4% AAU Bittering Hops
1/2 OZ Tehnanger 5.3% AAU Finishing hops
1 pack "Dark-Munich-Beer" Vierka-Yeast
What do you guys think? Sound good? Can anyone tell me what the ABV will be? The guy I bought it from said I could decide what grains I want to steep and how much. Should I steep all of the black and Choc grain? Also, do I add the irish moss and finishing hops 15 minutes before the end of the boil? All input is much appreciated!
