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.

Recommended: 2-stage fermentation and yeast starter.

Favorite brew

I've for this kit 2 times previously and they were awesome. Added 12 oz of bourbon (Evan Williams)the 1st time. 16 oz of Buffalo Trace the second time. I think I'll stick to the 16 oz this time. 16 oz has a noticeable bourbon flavor,but nowhere near overpowering. Great brew!
I should add that, as others have said, very active fermentation. Blow off tube was full of foam. One gallon jug that was 1/2 full of sanitized water overflowed with foam also. Look out!

Get a blow off tube.

I am mid brew and look forward to trying this beer. A heads up to anyone who brews this beer active fermentation literally blew the lid off my fermenter. I realize I have a simple 5 gallon plastic brewing kit, but a simple fermentation lock won’t cut it for this beer.

First time brewing

So I thought I had picked a hard beer to make for my first try, but I had a coworker who has brewed kits before and felt up to the challenge. The grain bag ended up really full compared to others my coworker had done but we were able to pack it and tie it off. Brewed outside on a turkey fryer stand and a 5gallon stainless steel pot. It all went pretty smooth with two times having to adjust the heat and lid to prevent a boil over/ keep the right temp. I would advise against doing this on an oven indoors. It started bubbling at air lock by 24hrs later. Really excited to add bourbon and oak chips after second fermentation.
