There's a small layer of new krausen on top (about 1/2") I hope all the banana flavor doesn't get eaten up... Oh well, as long as the beer doesn't get infected (not likely at this point, I think), then at the very least, this is a god learning experience for next time... And the beer needed more alcohol/body anyways,,,

I would be careful with Kahlua. If it has any cream base in it, the stuff will curdle when it hits the more acidic beer. I know cause I wanted to do a stout with Godiva chocolate liqueur and first tried it in a single pint...stuff curdled like a car bomb. very disappointing. I ended up using dark creme de cacao, not as good as I would have liked, but it worked.

I wasn't aware Kahlua had any creme in it.. I always thought it was just brandy and coffee beans... Glad I didn't take a chance and try it....

I thought it did. but I could be wrong. to find out, just pour a shot into a pint of beer (doesn't matter what kind) if it doesn't curdle, you're golden, just add it to the keg.

I know this is an old thread, but I thought I would say... A Youngs double chocolate stout poured on top of a shot of kahlua is awesome! It most certainly does not curdle!
