19 Liter Batch

Primary:
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

Secondary:
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)

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

Temperature:
20 Degrees Celsius

OG: 1.085
FG: 1.010 (Target)
FG: 1.03 (Real)

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.

This is kind of the opposite of a light lager, isn't it?

Clearly you have a thorough understanding of a lager sir.

Sorry for posting here.

Kind regards

I was hoping this actually was a light lager. I would name a light lager 'Big Imperial Coffee Vanilla Stout,' and serve it in cans to unsuspecting guests.

I've never heard of this kit brand, though. What's special about it?
