Anyone ever tried this with rye whiskey instead of bourbon?

Default Pictures?


Anyone have anymore pictures of this beer? Has anyone done extract/grain version of this? If so what was your ABV?

I have this beer on tap right now. It comes out nearly black. I ended up with about a 7.4% abv before i added in 300 mL of Buffalo Trace bourbon. When i figured it up, that game out to roughtly 1/4 of a shot of bourbon per pint. It is a great beer and i have had several people give rave compliments on it. I even had one person say that as it warmed up, the flavors came out more and got even better. It is heavy and rich. Definitely not a beer to sit around and drink all night whilst shooting the bull with friends. I could imagine it being great to drink with a cigar.

Was this your first time brewing this? I am more interested in your choice of Bourbon as Buffalo Trace is one of my favorites if not my favorite bourbon and wanted to know how it compares to other brands. I plan on using Buffalo Trace later this year if I can get another bottle at a decent price.

Well, right before I decided to brew this beer, I started drinking a variety of bourbons. I started by drinking old fashioneds, but that was too much work, so i was just drinking bourbon on the rocks. I was just going to the liquor store and picking up a bottle of whatever looked good at the time. I too really began to enjoy Buffalo trace. When it came time to add the bourbon, i had a half a bottle left. There are several other brands that i really enjoy, but that was what I had available, plus it was a fairly reasonably priced bourbon. And yes, it was my first time brewing this beer.

I too used Buffalo Trace as my bourbon for this beer. May as well use what you like, after all if you dont like what you brew whats the point of doing it? I put in 450+ml so as I said in my thread above, my abv is 8.5% with a really nice bourbon/vanilla taste. Good bourbon flavor in drinking it as well but not too over powering.
