Well I can't say i was dead sober during tasting or that I had a Founders at the time. The one I drank was bottled for four weeks so maybe more time will blend the flavors more/better/different. I believe the 4ml per bottle would make you happy.

8oz per 5 gallons adds a good whiskey character, that's approx 1 cup of bourbon added to the fermenter or bottling bucket.

I prefer to add some whiskey soaked oak cubes to primary/secondary for 2-3 weeks when doing whiskey beers, but that's me. Just chuck 'em (and the liquid) in primary after the main fermentation has settled down.

Cheers,
~Adam

As stated earlier in this post, IMO stay clear of the second addition. The first addition of coffee is enough, the second made it way too bitter IMO and I like coffee and coffee beers also. To each their own I guess but that's my two cents!

The second addition is all down to taste for sure. I added 1.5oz of cold-brew and for me, it is fine even now (been bottled for 5 weeks). I'd imagine that over the next few months, it will mellow even more. But the benefit of adding the cold-brew at bottling is it allows you to taste as you go. Add 1 oz (about 4 oz. of cold-brewed coffee) and taste it. Keep adding if you want more coffee flavor.

I ground up 2oz of Kona coarsely, and made a coffee "sludge" of sorts in a mug, and let it sit overnight, then strained that thru a paint strainer cone, and ended up adding about 1oz of the "extract". I was scared to add anymore.

This thing is absolutely delicious, and can only get better as the booze has a few more months to soften its bite.

I love it as-is with the 2oz/2oz additions. Grounds in the boil, cold-brew in the bottling bucket.

The beauty is, I can go back and add some more later on if I need to give it a boost for bottling.

After being done in the primary my gravity went from 1.063 to 1.011 for an abv of 6.83%. Will this change after the secondary? How did I end up with such a high abv compared to the origional recipe? (not a complaint!) Is this due to the mash efficiency?

Sounds like you mashed way low. 1.010 is quite dry for this recipe. Also, the grav is 1.086, so you're 23 pts off. The original recipe is like 8.5%, so I'm not sure what you're talking with yours being higher.

I keep forgetting I have this. I brewed it, oaked/bourbon'd it, aged it in the keg.. carbed it... and then bottled it, and left the bottles SOMEWHERE in a box in my cluttered garage.
