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.

Only getting better with age, intense flavor yet very well balanced

Hopefully this will come out great!

I brewed the BB Porter Feb 28 taking all advice and followed the recipe like a chemist. This was also my first occasion to use Fast Pitch which has a high rating from me. Previously I would add the packet of yeast to the wort to wait for it to begin bubbling, not so with Fast Pitch. Air lock was busy right away. For an up to date, I chose not to rack into a secondary and added the oak and bourbon. I'll rack a couple of days before I bottle in two weeks to allow everything to settle. Hopefully this will come out great as I have high expectations. ~K
