Brewing this up now. Raining here.

My wife says it appears the Grim Reaper is brewing on our patio!

So I've been lagering this for about 3.5 weeks, and it's been on the bourbon/chips since 3/28 (about two weeks). The bourbon/oak flavor is very, very subtle, but definitely there, and definitely intriguing!

I am going to give it another week, and if things stay subtle, I'll go ahead and keg, but next time I brew this recipe (and there will be a next time!!), I may double the bourbon barrel chips from 2 to 4 oz.

[Edit 4/24] extra week on the bourbon chips didn't do much more, so I kegged. It's absolutely delicious. Malty, but balanced, and a nice subtle pop/kick from the bourbon barrel chips. Here is a pic!

Here's a sneak preview. Took a sample after clearing with gelatin. Clear as glass. It still needs a while longer to carbonate and lager, but man, it's already pretty damn good. Thanks for the recipe.

Just popped my first bottle. I do things a little different and bottle first and then lager after the beer has carbonated. This is the beer after carbonating for 3 weeks and a quick chill. I'll lager the rest for as long as I can stand!

I used 34/70 yeast and it turned out great. I'm sure it will crisp up a little with lagering.

My Recipe was

96% German Munich Light
4% Crystal 90L

OG 1.071
FG 1.023
6.3%
IBU 22

This beer will be one that I keep in the pipeline. It will also be great for parties.

Thanks for a good recipe!
