I brewed one of the "kits" from Brewmaster's warehouse this week. The FBS extract clone, but with some additions. This is my first time posting a recipe...
Extract, 30 min steep at 156, 60 minute boil.
Briess Golden Light Liquid Extract 6 lbs, 0 oz
Briess Golden Light Dry Extract 3 lbs, 0 oz
Briess Flaked Oats 1 lbs, 0 oz
Crisp Chocolate Malt 1 lbs, 0 oz
Crisp Roasted Barley 0 lbs, 12 oz
Briess 2 Row Caramel 120 0 lbs, 8 oz

Williamette Pellets .5 oz @ 0 mins
Wyeast Labs Beer Yeast Nutrient 1 ea
Whirlfloc Tablets 1 ea
2 oz Kona Course Ground at flameout
1 Oz Espresso Beans at flame out
3 oz Cocoa Powder at flame out(slurry)
4 grams Caffeine Powder. This will give roughly 80 mg/12 oz bottle. (a 12 oz Mt Dew has 54 mg, a redbull around 80. WITH the coffee, I expect right around 100 mg/12 oz).
Wyeast Labs American Ale
OG was 1.080 Expect a FG of 1.022, I think? Predicted ABV of 7.7%.
This is my first time using these hops, much less aroma than I am use to. The caffeine powder is VERY bitter. Like a tablet of aspirin. I don't think you will notice it in the 5 gallons of beer, though.
At 8 hours was fermenting like crazy.
