Hi there
I’m making this kit and bit

1.7 kg Original Series Stout
1.5 kg Chocolate malt
300 gm Dextrose
10 gm cascade 5 minutes boil
20 gm Tettnanger Dry hop at day 4
23 Liter recipe

My question is this:
Would there be a negative effects if I added a pack of Safale US-04 Ale yeast to the coopers kit yeast and pitch both together? I'm not sure what the coopers yeast realy is. It sounds like an all purpose yeast to what I've been reading in this forum, Thanks!

I dont think adding dry hops is going to achieve anything worth while

What sort chocolate malt are you using, is it ferment able dark malt extract ?

Yes, it's fermentable dark malt extract, the local brew store simply called it chocolate malt

Thanks for the advice Waylon, I'm experimenting with ingredients. So far my brews have been really tasty, but for some reason I'm not sure about this one I might hold off. But if someone has knowledge on the question about the yeast, it would be appreciated, thanks ;)

Our Stout Kit yeast (see here for product info) and S-04 go well together. Make sure you have plenty of head-space because the initial foaming may be explosive.

Thanks PB2

another question, what hops would go well with the original stout?

Hops for aroma/flavour tend to get a bit lost in stout.
