Just an update, I brewed this today with 2 booster pouches and the pound of light DME like I said. I did a 10 minute boil on 1 package of Willamette pellets, and left it in the wort. I got an OG of 1.069! It's going to pack a punch!
I tried the kit 4 times. On my last (and final) attempt, I used lactose, stopped the fermentation, and back sweetened with apple juice. And it could take off the whole hitch. Not wasting time or money on those kits again.
