This works (or any scaled version), but I prefer to remember the 1-10 rule, 1 gram of DME per 10 ml of water, so 100 grams for a 1 liter starter etc. You have to have a scale for that method though

Doh! No, I'm not a "post whore." I just forgot to attach this picture of my grandson to the previous post!

Ya I'm doing bottles so I have no clue if the volume of CO2 is the same between kegging and bottling. I assume so. In any case the head and carbonation on these 22 oz. bombers after after I bottled them on Feb.4th is perfect imho. This pic is from around Feb. 20th as a 12 oz test bottle. These were conditioned at around 70*F for three weeks before my first 22oz. was cracked. The test bottle was a 12 oz that had 4 inches of headspace(last bottle). The carb/head is the same with the 22 oz bombers. They're just a tad more carbed and have another 1/2" of head. These really are about the same carbonation level as several other porters I've had in the recent past . . .BBC drayman's porter, Wormtown pro-am porter, and Breckinridge vanilla porter.

I am actually thinking of using this bourbon instead of makers mark, I got this eagle rare for my birthday and I really like it. However, I've never tasted makers mark so ill have to sample it first before I make my decision (not much of a bourbon geek).

Put this in a mason jar last night 1.25 oz oak chips to 14oz ish makers. How long to soak and can I add it all (chips+makers) to corny as my secondary? Then should I take chips out after week or so?

Its been 15 weeks since brew day and 6 weeks since bottling with the last week in the fridge. Really tempted to try it but think it's a little too soon....

Second round of BBP . Can't wait. One of our favorites. About 18 hours after pitching.

I knew my keg was getting low so I decided to bottle the rest and save for the future. Was hoping to get about 4-6 bottles but only was able to fill 2 bottles. So far it's about 6 months old and tastes amazing!! Let's hope I can forget I have these around and find them in another 6 months and see how they have aged! One of my best brews ever! Cheers
