Bourbon Barrel Porter Extract 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.

I brewed the kit on the 14th of January. First kit of the new year. Everything was in the kit. The instruction were easy to follow. Now just waiting for the magic to happen.
to early. have not brewed the beer kits yet. try again in two weeks
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!
In second ferment with Maker’s Mark bourbon. Gonna be great stuff!
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.
