I brewed this to 40 pints with 1kg dark DME and 200g black treacle, which took the price well past what a premium 2 can kit would cost. There were no problems with the fermentation, but the kit instructions left a lot to be desired, as there is an option to brew to 32 pints but little further information. After fermenting it went into a keg with 80 grams of sugar and a blast of CO2. Again the instructions did not mention the need for sugar in the secondary fermentation and I have read about new kit brewers not adding any sugar and ending up with bottles of flat beer with no head. This stout could be drunk straight away from the keg, but was all the better for leaving it to condition for a month or so. It has now been in the keg for 12 weeks and is a fantastic stout. It's a pity I only have about 6 pints left. Several friends have been rationed the odd half a pint and everyboody loves it. Plenty of them have asked if I could brew and bottle a kit of this stout for them. It would have received full marks if the instructions had been better.
