Description
Used Brewers Best Milk Stout Ingredient Kit. But because the kit yields a low 5.0-5.5 ABV, I added 2 lbs of BRIESS Dried Malt Extract and 1 lb Cane sugar. My OG was 1.086 and is still in first stage of fermentation.

Recipe Details
Tasting Notes The Brewers Best Milk Stout kit makes a very tasty Sweet Stout. Hopefully my alterations won't degrade the flavor but yield a much higher ABV.
