Bourbon barrel-aged beers have been a hugely popular style ever since their inception in the early '90s by American craft brewers. By starting with a stronger-than-average robust porter, then infusing it with Bourbon-soaked oak (we recommend Maker's Mark), the end result is quite possibly the best beer ever.

Recommended: 2-stage fermentation and yeast starter.

We strongly recommend ordering dry yeast in the summer months. We do include complimentary ice packs with all liquid yeasts, but it is difficult to guarantee that the ice packs will survive the trip given transit times and particularly hot temperatures.

Product Details
Bourbon barrel-aged beers have been a hugely popular style ever since their inception in the early '90s by American craft brewers. By starting with a stronger-than-average robust porter, then infusing it with Bourbon-soaked oak (we recommend Maker's Mark), the end result is quite possibly the best beer ever. You'll have to supply your own bourbon - save a little to sip on brew day to really capture the spirit. The intense aroma and flavor of toasted American oak and the sweet graininess of good bourbon meld with the bittersweet roastiness of porter to make for a very characterful beer. Recommended: 2-stage fermentation and yeast starter.

how long do you soak the oak?
A shopper on Jun 22, 2015
Best Answer: It depends on a number of variables. 1. How boozy you want the beer to be? 2. How much oak/ surface area is used. 3. How long are you going to age the porter? I soak 1 oz of cubes in Makers Mark for 1 week and then soak the cubes in secondary for 2 weeks and found it slightly boozy immediately after kegging and carbing. The more it ages the more the flavors blend and, in my opinion, the better it gets. If you'll like boozy use more oak cubes, soak it longer or drink it quick. If you want more of a background bourbon flavor use leas oak or let it age.
