I'm buying the stuff today to do this one again. Despite my extremely low FG, it was one of the best beers I've made. I'm not certain I would change a thing. I need to get the oak cubes on the bourbon!

Am glad I found this thread. I have a 5 gallon Balcones blue corn whiskey barrel that is just sitting in my house at I need to use this thing ASAP. This might have pushed me over the edge to brew this up to have this fall/winter.

This time I did a little something different. I kept back 1 gallon of the batch before adding oak cubes and bourbon. I'll mix the gallon with the 4 gallons that have been aged on the oak and bourbon at bottling. I don't know what difference this will make but I was curious. Funny, I said in the previous post I wouldn't change a thing. Ah such is the prerogative of a homebrewer to change her mind!

Actually sounds more authentic to the real Allagash MO.

It's even better! I find it to be sweeter tasting - less dry. Probably because of the lowered amount of oak. It is also a tad lighter in color. (I did a side by side comparison with one of the few remaining original bottles) As it ages it should get even smoother, assuming it will be allowed to age!

Checked with LHBS and grains and hops are good to go, since they don't stuck much Wyeast I asked if the could order 3522 for this week and all they had was WLP500 so 550 is on their order for this week too, both should be there Thursday! Since it seems the combo of these two strains is a major piece to this I wasn't willing to substitute due to their stock like I've had to on about half the beers I've made so far.

I'm thinking of using Jim Beam Devil's Cut in place of regular Jim Beam, any thoughts? It has a sweeter, more vanilla like flavor to me. Name the brew "The Devil's Cut Tripel" or "The Trident."

Wondering if anybody has info on Chichum timeline post, post #165. Is that accurate or have others racked to secondary(or left in primary), added oak cubes, and bottled at different times?
