FYI an easy alternative yeast option is using 2 packets of 04 - It finishes sweet and works fast and clean in big stouts. I've had alot of success with it, more so than 05 in this style.

Re-Racked with Angel's Envy Bourbon Barrel Chips: 6/16 (1.023)
Bottled: 11/21 (1.024)

Made 18 bombers with ~3.75 gallons in the final product. I waxed the tops and added custom labels, and then added bottle x of y to the bottles to add the extra flair...










Freeride - where'd you get your labels from?

My 10G cooler MLT was nearly maxed with the 22+ lb grist at a 1.25L/lb mash ratio (although the old "Can I Mash It? calculator says you can squeeze closer to 30 LBS in with a thicker mash).

I batch sparged it, but I don't see why you couldn't fly-sparge if you start running off a bit before beginning your sparge. A mash-out might be tricky though.

I can't seem to find the exact brand, but I got something like this at my local homebrew store: http://www.amazon.com/Avery-Textured...+Bottle+Labels

I printed quickly on my laser printer and actually like the clean, simple result.

Thanks! Just really liked the little extra touches of your lable (brew date, bottle numbers, etc.).

Thanks a lot! I knew I wanted to make some ageable beer as Christmas gifts. I was loving how the taste was developing after primary and throughout the secondary fermentors, so I knew I had my beer. Thus, I spent some time figuring out how to take this gift to the next level!

In related news, I brewed this beer again on 1/2/14. Used a 3-step mash on my new digitial single-tier system (protein, sach, and dext rests). I wanted to step up the mouthfeel and "thickness" of the beer. Kegged 5 gallons, and an uncarbbed taster....two words: NAILED IT!!!

Just finished this last night. OG at 1.15, and used a WLP007 starter. Taste at yeast pitching was nice. Sweet, chocolate, coffee. Looking forward to putting it on local whiskey soaked Oaked chips in a month or so!

Just an update on mine... Tasted a small today. Sweet, chocolate, some oak/vanilla. Not as much of a whiskey flavor as I had hoped for. I'm hoping another month will perhaps improve this area. But, a question while I'm on the topic - as this is my first bourbon-esque beer with oak chips. I soaked the oak chips in whiskey for 2 months prior. When transferring to secondary I strained the chips and put them in the fermenter. Was this the best way to do it? Should I have transferred some of the whiskey itself into the Carboy, or has the batch itself told me to use more oak next time? I used roughly 2oz. This time around.
