Years ago, I bought a great kit for Russian imperial stout from Alternative Beverage. It has, I believe, 16 pounds of DME in the kit and some specialty grains. (Or maybe it was 16 pounds between the DME and the specialty grains combined). It had an expected final ABV of 10.7%.

There are now two different imperial stout extract kits for sale on the AB site, one is called: "Russian Imperial Stout Home Brew Extract Recipe Kit" and the other is called:
"Catherine the Great Imperial Stout Home Brew Extract Recipe Kit".

Can someone who has brewed either of these tell me how much malt and specialty grains are included in either of their kits, and what is the expected ABV percentage, so I have some idea if I'm buying the same thing or a somewhat similar kit to what I brewed back in the 1990s when I began brewing?

And perhaps your personal opinion of the one you brewed? It's a lot of money to spend when there are kits from other sources for a little more than half the price these are selling for (one being Northern Brewer), so I want to be sure I'm getting more for my money.

Thanks in advance.
