Don't boil kiwis. Steep around 150 - 160 F, 180 F is too high. 20 minutes, maybe a few extra minutes as wort cools. Going into a cask to ferment, so can't leave kiwis in wort. Strain out with hops. Add pectic enzyme after beer has cooled (with yeast).

OG 1.073
FG 1.016
ABV 7.6%

To change: Sub amber malt for pilsner (too dark). Less extract (too much alcohol).
