I'll check prices at Siciliano's Market and this new place. Online they want $75 or so for 50#. I've been wanting to check it out because I see so many recipes that list it and I hear it's a good malt for a lot of recipes.

Hey! Now don't be letting the wife know that I can check out the store online! She might veto my planned escape this weekend! (We are watching my BILs 3 kids so they can have a get-away).

Also, would you want to go if I make a run down there?

Did I say online? I must have meant, um ... Northernbrewer, lol. Yeah if the snow lets up by then it sounds good. I found out last Saturday that the guy in there is the mayor.

I'm seriously thinking about driving down there tonight. Why buy a Jeep if you can't enjoy it! We'll see. He has some strange hours...

Let me know what you think! I think it turned out pretty good, and aside from aging it longer (or oaking a bit less), I don't think there is anything I'd change. Well, I could try dryhopping with some chinook, too. That might improve it.

I'm curious how much bourbon you used in 3 gallons. I've currently got a 5 gallon batch of Oaked Spiced Bourboned Ale aging in secondary, and I think I used way too much bourbon (14 oz. in 5 gallons).
Will aging it for an extremely long period ever mellow it out, or do you think it's doomed to forever taste like watery whiskey?

Nope it's lost. I did a 5g batch of a stout and used 5oz and it was to much. Once it's there it's there. brew it again and blend them.

The recipe called for 8 oz. Future me expected past me to have measured it into the jar with the oak chips, but Past me just poured as much into the jar to cover the chips and expected Future me to measure it later.

Those guys really need to work on their communication skills.
