Default Bourbon Porter

Being from Southern Indiana I have grown up loving bourbon. I don't drink it often as it brings out a mean streak in me I'd rather keep hidden. Within the last six months I have discovered beer infused with Bourbon, which of course incorporates my 2 favorite things ever. I recently brewed AHS's Whiskey Porter and used 675 ml of Bourbon at bottling. Drinking my first one right now and if I can toot my own horn, it's probably one of the best beers I have ever tasted. That is all, thanks for reading

I'm from Cincy so I understand about the love for Bourbon. I did a heavy Scottish ale recipe and oaked it for 6 weeks with 10oz of Makers Mark. Its been bottled for about 3 months. I've tried a few and only gets better with age.

Cheers! I've now got the 12B AHS Whiskey Barrel Porter in the primary fermenter for a week. It slowed down two days in and I'm considering keeping it in the primary for yet another week then +2 in the secondary. Austin Homebrew suggests transferring after 5-7 days, but I've heard other brewers waiting another week or up to one month in the primary before transferring to the secondary fermentation. Appreciate any advice on timing. Thanks folks!
