It's the Imperial A04 "Barbarian" version.
I've never made a tropical stout. I'll have to familiarize myself with that style.
Yes, I plan to repitch into the IPA. The stout would be 3rd gen and the 4th gen for the IPA.
I'll think about the sugar idea. I'm not going for high gravity here, so my concern would be thinning out the body.
Ok thanks guys I feel a little better about the plan.
