Imperial stouts were first brewed in England for export to the royal courts of the Russian Tsars. The Tsars are gone but the beer remains, the "War and Peace" of stouts. This kit yields a pitch black beer with tan head, resounding with burnt, bitter chocolate character, hops, and syrupy malt. A viscous, chewy body finishing with lots of roast grain and a warming alcohol note. A nice companion on a cold winter night or accompanying chocolate dessert. Recommended:
Recommended:2-stage fermentation and yeast starter.

The numbers I get seem really high.Best Answer: Depending on your system, you will shoot for around 1.3 quarts of water per pound for the mash in.
