I want to start on a good winter brew now. I want it to be something warm, heavy, and high alcohol (around 10%). I was thinking I would try a bourbon stout, maybe add a small hint of chocolate to it. But I dont know where to begin. I looked through the recipe database here, but everything was all-grain, and I dont know how to convert. I would also like to get some advice on the best way to get the bourbon flavor into the beer. I searched around some and it looks like I need to soak roasted oak chips in cheap bourbon while the beer is in the primary. Do I roast them in the oven? BBQ? Fire Pit?
