Hey JustARogue,

Did you end up brewing this? How did it go? I was thinking about trying it out. Looking for a complex malty stout and this looks pretty good.

If its an extract/partial boil batch it's likely your OG is high due to not mixing the top up water before taking your sample.

The gear you get is good and serves the purpose for your first batches. I have not met too many brewers that didn't start on a kit like that.
