Hello all. I wanted to run my idea by people who know a lot more about brewing than I do.
I just picked up a RIS kit from Northern Brewer. I plan on making the RIS base, then racking it over cocoa powder in the secondary. In addition, I am planning on soaking oak cubes in Jim Beam's new "Red Stag" black cherry infused Bourbon and adding these into the secondary as well.
Hopefully, this makes a thick, strong stout with some chocolate, bourbon, cherry and oak notes. My question is do any of you have any recommendations on what type of oak or chocolate I should use. All recommendations welcome...I thank you in advance!
