Orfy, I liked the pictures out of your window and it looks yummy. I have always wanted to see how the other side of the world looks. I have never used oak chips. Do you boil them before adding the wiskey? Did the yeast cling to the chips a lot?

The chips were not boiled.
They were added after a month in primary so there wasn't much yeast to cling.

Does that really say 19.4 IBUs and an OG for 1.072? Is this at all balanced Orfy or is this malty as a MoFo?

I've got something very, very similar to this planned as my next brew and wanted to get things hammered out...

Orfy I'm interested in trying this one.

Quick question though, you wrote in the recipe that the chips are soaked in whisky. Then on a reply said "the chips were not soaked". Did you mean to write "not boiled"...in response to the question about boiling?

It was suprisingly balanced. It was one beer I didn't want to be bitter.

Another good thread/idea from the Orfster!

I've just oaked my first bier this past month. 1 gallon each with bourbon soaked chips and 1 gal with scotch soaked oak chips. Care to give us an idea of what the scotch lends to the bier. I'm betting a nice peaty Islay (home of my forefathers) scotch would do a good job in a variety of biers. For the record I used Chavis Regal, a fairly good and smooth but non discript Scotch. At bottling I was blown away with the vanilla and toast aromas coming from the bourbon soaked chips wood aged bier.

Schlante,
Phillip

Ps I didn't see a mash temp reading on this one, I'd say 151-152F?

How long did the Oak stay in the beer Orfy? This is approx. 1.5 oz so I would guesstimate about a week to 10 days?

I love the idea of this beer, thanks for posting.
