    I have been given 2.5 gallons of an Imperial Stout. It has finished fermenting actively and currently sitting at 1.043. Started at about 1.155, so it will age for awhile is a certainty. It has been suggested that I a make a high gravity wheat with big hops to add to the Imperial to make approximately 5.5 gallons.

    The base for the Wheat beer is the Angelus Mortis heffweizen recipe with the following hop additions:

    1oz Warrior 15.9 @ 60 min
    1oz Chinook 14.1 @ 45 min
    1oz Nugget 12.1 @ 30 min
    1oz Crystal 8.1 @ 15 min
    1oz Chinook 14.1 @ 5 min.

    Thoughts?

    Why are you combining the 2 beers? To lighten the imperial stout? Or trying to create a different beer? I wouldn't use a wheat beer to lighten a stout, but if it's a unique taste you are after, it could work.

    Making a "Deer Camp Special." So playing with it... The Fellow brewer that gave me this made the wheat suggestion and said "Have Fun" with it.
