I got that kit from a local brew supply store that open recently. I just brewed it last night. Did you add any whiskey to your or soak the wood chips in whiskey? I was thinking of doing that but I'm not sure how much to add, I've seen any where from a 750 ml bottle to just a couple ounces

I did not. The beer turned out really well. However, I really don't taste the Whisky, so I guess you could add some. I left the chips in for 3 wks not 4, so maybe that would make a difference.

Finally got around to bottling this beer after sitting in the secondary on the wood chips/ 6 oz of whiskey for a month. It will be interesting to see how the flavors change/develop as time goes by and the beer ages. I tried a sample as I was bottling and it is a very strong whiskey flavor

I'm going to do something similar with a dark ale recipe I came up with. 4oz of medium roast French oak chips with 3-4 jiggers of 8 year old Beam's Black. Put whiskey /chips in sealed container in the fridge when I pitch on the dark ale.
Finish fermentation on the dark ale,then rack to secondary. Hold open hop sack over surface of beer,& pour all through the hop sack so as to contain the chips. I don't want small chips getting into a bottle. Then let it sit for maybe 2 weeks. I thought maybe the larger amount of soaked chips would go quicker.

I brewed this a few months ago. It turned out very nice with good charactor. I added 1 cup of whiskey to soak/ sanatize the wood chips before going in the secondary. What I noticed after 2 weeks in the secondary was a smooth stout with a slight wood/ whiskey after taste. I only have a few left but those ones actually got to age and they are exceptionally smooth, my sugestion if you have the patience (I dont) is to age them at least 30 days after bottling/ kegging.

on another note I am on a quest to find an all grain version of this.

My whiskely ale has been in the bottles 31 days now, Tried a few with the wife @ 22 days in & had a smooth bourbon flavor,with some roastiness in there. Not much carbonation yet,minimal head @ 22 days. Maybe try it again @ the end of this month.

I first tried mine after a month in the bottle, I didn't like it too much. It had too much of the wood flavor. But now after two months it tastes real good and is turning into quite a good beer. I plan on setting aside at least a six pack to see how the beer ages and the flavors change

Hi all-

Can somebody help me out with this brew? I just picked up the kit, but it only comes with the standard (generic) instructions and I have no idea when to add each of the grains and the wood chips! Thanks for any help you can provide!
