I have a Glenbrew Irish Stout kit.  It's an all in one hopped malt kit.
Does anyone have any suggestions on adding malt or hops or yeast to
'freshen' it up?

You could strengthen it with some dark or extra dark extract.  If you add
extract, it makes sense to add some hops as well.  Not too much, though.
Maybe 3/4 to 1/2 ounce of Fuggles pellets at the start of the boil for
bittering for every 3lbs of extract you add.  How old is the kit you are
using?  Hop bitterness can diminish over a period of months, so if it is
fairly old, you might consider adding a another ounce of Fuggles (or

For yeast, I'd go with a good liquid yeast, either an Irish variety or an
English ale variety.

Good luck.
