My second batch came out a little hot/rough so I've been giving it some more time to age out. Just took a sample out of the lagering fridge and it's ready. It'll be on next.

Just started soaking the cubes for the next batch

Pulled first draft- this is awesome. Very similar to the original from what I can tell, bit didn't do side-by-side comparison. To recap- ferment for 3-4 weeks in primary (letting temp ramp up to 75 or so), racked onto 1.5 oz oak cubes (soaking in bourbon for a month) for 8-9 weeks. Then kegged and added a splash of fresh bourbon- maybe an ounce. This one is around 9% ABV yet is smooth. No alcohol burn; the Belgian flavors profile and that of the bourbon melded beautifully. Among the top 5 I have ever made. Thanks for recipe and all the input.

Batch #2. It's taken longer to get to peak, but we're there now.

Camera adds 10 Lovibond, as usual.

Mainebrew, I am going to be brewing this on Saturday. Did you dump both yeasts in the same starter or did you make two separate ones?

In case he doesn't see it in time, both in one starter worked for me.

And I did two separate starters and then dumped them one behind the other in the wort. I don't think it really matters....

Thanks for the quick replies, I was getting sorta worried. The smack pack has swelled and I have the wlp550 in about 1500 ml of starter. I guess I will just so another 600 ml of starter and dump in the smack pack.

Thanks guys! I ended up using a single starter with both yeasts about 1500 mls total. It was CRAZY the amount of yeast that starter made. Yeast was all over the vessel, all over the counter top, flowing down the cabinet door and on the floor. Simply put, it was the most rockin' starter in my brewing career!
