    What is everyone's recommendation for priming on this one? Do you need all 5oz?I had 17.6
    liters to prime and used 111g of corn sugar. I had targetted 2.2 volumes of CO2. It seems to be
    pretty perfect...

    I never stir it up, it always works out.

    Unfortunately, I have already racked to a secondary and I don't necessarily want to rack it
    again if I can avoid it. I imagine if I'm just careful and don't just slop it in on top, I'll
    be okay.Yeah, ...

    Its kind of a black art. There's a lot of factors that can influence how much oak your going to
    get in a set time. The only way to be sure, is every few days take a sanitized wine thief and
    lightly sw...

    Anyone have any good ideas on adding the oak/liquor to the secondary without making a mess, or
    splashing the wort too much?I asked about this when I did mine. People said just to wash my
    hands off wit...

    I've got one of these aging, I'm in the "hopefully, but optimistic" category.For some
    perspective, I *love* heavy, boozy, oak aged beers. Things like KBS, BCS, Dark Lord, etc - I
    love 'em all. The gf ...

    So I'm currently brewing this, more or less. I have the 6 lbs of DME but had it split as 1LB
    for 60 min and the other 5 as a late extract addition. I then had a 9g 60 min cascade addition
    and a 7g 30 ...

    Unsolicited aside, that is a GREAT kit, and it isn't hurt by a little extra (uncalled for) dry
    hopping)Yeah, I tried a sample of the porter about a week ago to get a gravity reading (1.018
    IIRC), and ...

    Think about it: the oak is soaked in bourbon(80 proof?), and primary fermentation is complete
    or near complete. Chances of infection are negligible at best. Normal sanitation practices
    probably aren't...

    Cool guys, that's what I figured. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing some obvious (but
    not to me) method of getting them in there which was better.
