19 Liter Batch

1.8 KG Mangrove Jack's Export Stout Extract (Delicious)
1.5 KG DME
500 Grams Dextrose
30 Grams Saaz hops (muslin bag with initial boil)
5 Grams yeast nutrient

60 Grams / 500 ml Cold Brew Coffee.
1 Fresh vanilla Pod. (Steeped in 20 Y/O brandy)

Batch Prime:
70 Grams Caramel brown sugar diluted in 500 ml water. (hopefully impart a caramel flavor)

Safale S-04 (Starter 250 ml starter) I know it is too little. I will re-pitch halfway through fermentation.

20 Degrees Celsius

OG: 1.085

Low FG due to my own idiocy by not aerating wort and using a MUCH to small starter.

Anyway, It's great. please try it.
