Try 2-3oz of chips with no more than 3 jiggers of bourbon. Soak them in an air-tight container
in the fridge while the beer ferments. Pour the chips & liquor through a hop sock into
secondary,tie off ...

Hey all,I'm making a Robust Porter and adding some bourbon soaked wood chips to secondary. I've

Wow. I'd be SUPER careful with that. Glass can break into fairly small fragments. Any straining
that would get out all of the glass would probably take out all of the yeast in suspension as
well. BUT ...

starter and s...
