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.

We strongly recommend ordering dry yeast in the summer months. We do include complimentary Cold Ice Packs with all liquid yeasts. However, it is difficult to guarantee that the ice packs will survive the trip, given transit times and particularly hot temperatures.

What is the ABV of this beer?
Marvin R on Aug 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: With an og of 1.096, and a fg about 1.012 you are looking at about 11% if you don't add the bourbon. You will need a blow off tube during fermentation.
Is one yeast better than the others?
Sean M on Sep 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I prefer liquid yeast overall, but I just made this and won't know end result for about 2 1/2 more months
I just purchased the Dragon's Silk and was planning on brewing soon. Would I need more than 1 package of the Omega West Coast Ale liquid Yeast to reach the desired ABV?

Do you add the burbon with the oak cubes or just the cubes?
A shopper on Sep 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We recommend adding the bourbon along with the oak cubes.
Is one yeast better than another?
A shopper on Sep 14, 2017
Step 17 is when the oak cubes and bourbon are added... Stem 18 says to let the beer age six to eight weeks in the secondary before bottling. Is that correct?
Steven U on Sep 14, 2017
Is vanilla added to the boil? I did not see anything about adding vanilla listed in the recipe.
A shopper on Sep 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No vanilla is used in this kit. The vanilla character comes from the oak and bourbon additions.
The instructions say primary fermentation is 2 weeks and secondary is 6-8 weeks, but bottling day is 1 month after brewing day. Do you really bottle in the middle of secondary fermentation????
A shopper on Oct 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I would wait the 6 - 8 weeks of secondary fermentation before bottling. Better all of the way around.
what kind of bourbon do you recommend?
Jeshua G on Oct 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I would recomnend you use your favorite. Whwn you add it to your stout start out with small amounts over several days sampling and add more as needed.Hopes this helps.
I brewed this beer on Saturday and came out with an OG of 1.112. I am here in hot and humid South Florida. Did I do something wrong and will I need to add a second package of dry yeast to make sure that this beer does not come out too sweet?
A shopper on Oct 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: How many packages of yeast did you use to start???
