Bourbon Barrel Porter All Grain Beer Recipe Kit
Bourbon barrel-aged beers have been a hugely popular style ever since American craft brewers first started exploring this deliciously innovative technique in the 1990s. And the results of those experiments have only become more sought-after over the past decades.
We've packed the best elements of the style, along with the finest ingredients, into a foolproof recipe kit that brings the best of the craft breweries to you. 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, so be sure to 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.

All questions are well explained.
This is my flagship brew that always delivers an incredible deep, rich flavor. I always try to have this beer on tap to share with my friends. I have named this brew the Bourbonator.
Still in secondary but the Porter pre addition of bourbon (Jack this time) and oak chips is solid. Almost just let it be and left as a porter. But first time I made it (with Makers) it was a huge hit with my buddies. Now that I have a new respect for bourbon and scotch I decided to move forward with the additional ingredients. Third addition will be with a pete based scotch (which are my favorites) and see what develops. Visited Jack’s distillery this fall so thought I’d give him a shot at immortality.
Brewed, fermented and bottled. Not time to try it yet.
Very easy to make and tastes great
