Product details

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.

Due to the high starting gravity of this kit, we recommend pitching multiple packs of yeast or preparing a yeast starter for best results.

A real good winter brew. Smooth and flavorful. I will brew again

An absolute must brew for me year after year!

I have been brewing for many years, and have brewed hundreds of batches. This beer done right is a huge winner. I hold a music festival every summer at my home in Fort Worth. I brew up several beers for it each year and have them on tap for our guests to enjoy. Three or four years ago one of the musicians came up to me and wanted to know exactly what this beer was because, in his own words, "I grew up in Germany and have been all over the world drinking beer and playing music. This beer is the best I've ever had!" I now brew this beer for that band every year. I named it after him, so this beer is now known around here as "The Obermiller" I use TX Whiskey in it. I found that side by side the TX Whiskey version is better in every way. TX has a pronounced vanilla flavor that goes perfectly with the all grain porter.

Love it!

Better than expected! Except I mistakenly used whiskey and not bourbon whiskey. I ordered a second kit as I always want to have it on hand!

Great kit!

Third time I have brewed this one. Makers Mark this time, instead of **** Creek (save a few bucks). Delish!

first try

This was out first bear using our new electric brew system, In general the process went fairly smoothly despite a few learning challenges. We had to use a different yeast as the one suggested was out of stock. We chose “darkness” instead.

We prepped our yeast prior to brewing and it was ready to go. It didn’t produce as much or as sustained activity as I expected, but appears to have completed. In fact we ended up with an a 22% beer post fermentation despite have a pre-fermentation SG right about where I expected.

That’s plenty strong….Go Darkness I guess…

The instructions should have been far more details about how to prep the oak chips. We looked on line at different approaches, but I’m not convinced we did that step correctly. All in all, it came out fine, if somewhat strong. We were hoping for a beer that was a bit richer and flavor forward. I suspect we really need to put it in a real keg to loose some alcohol and water, but I don’t have one handy. Its not bad, jut not exactly what we were hoping for. We added some coco nibs in secondary, and that has helped some. I’m hoping we can let it age a bit more and go from there. Right now I am not getting much oak or bourbon flavor...

The kit was complete, but some additional recommendations on using adjuncts would have been handy
