Beware the dragon that lurks in the inky shadows of this potent ale. On the surface, Dragon's Silk Bourbon Barrel Imperial Stout exhibits a facade of chocolate, coffee and approachable roast, but as you delve deeper into the lair you will discover a tremendous hoard of sweet Bourbon, rich oak and smooth notes of opulent vanilla. We urge you to face off with a pint of this commanding ale, and test your valor to slay the dragon.


Due to the high starting gravity of this kit, we recommend pitching multiple packs of yeast or preparing a yeast starter for best results. Click here for more info.

The Dragon
Very nicely packaged as are all the NB kits! Brewed this beer in mid-January. Superb brew day with this high-end, high-octane beer. I'll let you know in a few months how it turned out but I'm highly optimistic about the outcome.

I use a 10 gal cooler for a mash tun. I'm guessing that with 21.5 lbs of grain I'll need two coolers or to split the mash in half???
A shopper on Oct 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi there, one of us here was able to get it to work in his 10 gallon cooler and hit his numbers so you should be just fine!
A lot of imperial stouts are bottle conditioned/aged for 6 months or more. I’m thinking of doing an imperial stout now for the holidays next year. Do you recommend any length of time for conditioning/ageing?
A shopper on Jan 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: First this is a great kit. I did secondary for about six weeks. Been in the keg for one and it’s already amazing. Tastes a little young....i think another month in the keg and it’s going to be perfect. If you bottle i would give it at least two months in the bottle. Minimum. If you did it now and left it in the bottle until Christmas it would probably knock your socks off. Keep the bottles out of light and at an appropriate temp. Cheers.
How long should the oak be in secondary?
A shopper on Nov 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: 4-6 weeks is what the instructions say. I am 3 weeks into the oaking now.
Of the three options, what is the brewer's recommended yeast?
A shopper on Jan 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Safale US-05 Ale Yeast ( 2 pack)
The instructions state to soak the oak in 12 oz of bourbon then add the oak cubes to the secondary. My question is: are you supposed to just add the oak cubes or the oak cubes and 12 oz of bourbon?
Scott h on Sep 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I would add the bourbon to the beer as well, but we recommend that it be added to taste.
Do you just soak the oak in the bourbon and then just add the oak or do you add both the bourbon and the oak? Recommendation for bourbon (brand)?
A shopper on Sep 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Any Bourbon that you like to drink is what we recommend. You will want to add oak cubes and the bourbon into the beer.
I see a half pound of black malt is used. I had thought for stouts, the darkest grain would be black roasted barley. Doesn't this recipe create a porter, rather than a stout? How would using the black roasted barley instead of the black malt change the result?
