Well first.welcome to a fellow Canadian. Second, if you are giving this brew as a gift make sure it will be liked by the receiver. That is of course unless you plan on drinking it yourself if they don't like it.

boo boo, it is always good to see another Canadian on this board so hi back!

Instead of the JD pellets I think I will just use wine making oak chips, I know those will work. What is a good time period to let this beer cellar? I could make it later in the summer, I just wanted to give it time to reach it's potential.

I hope that this beer will be easy to like. I want to give it as a gift so that some of my friends will realize there is more to life than pee in a can. Should I just drop the oak for now and make a straightforward irish red? That doesn't sound like as much fun!

Nah... keep the oak, man. It comes out pretty interesting. I've always added oak to the primary, and just kind of boiled up the chips in a pint of water... used wine-making oak no trouble at all... seems to be about the right amount too. It all depends on how oaky you like your juice.


Primary: Lager

Secondary: Sangiovese, Honey Nut Brown, some Pilsner/ale kinda thing that just won't quit...

Tar Sands Porter, Special Dark Bitter,Oaky Red ale, Hammer & Tongs Black Ale, Black Draught, Cooper's Bitter, Baron's Pilsner
Super Saazy Saaz Pilsner Saaz (It's a little green, yet)
