Just want to throw this out there, I am going to do a bourbon imperial stout for my wedding, and I was looking about the Interwebs and found a craft distillery in NY called Tuthilltown Spirits that will sell you a used 3 gal. bourbon barrel for $76. I am going to age half the batch in that and then blend it back together. They prime the barrel for you before they ship it and everything. They have 7 gal. and maybe larger barrels as well. I've had their 4-grain bourbon, it's god-awful expensive and sinfully tasty.

If anyone wanted to get really serious with a bourbon ale clone, this is how you'd do it.

Can you get it anywhere around Youngstown? If not, when you make it down to Columbus or Dayton I'll point you in the right direction.

But the damn Ohio taxes, stuff ain't cheap.

BTW, I'm adding this to my 'planned' list right now.
Belmont Party Supply in Dayton carry Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale. It is amazing stuff. It is kinda like a Beam and Beer only better.

I brewed hibbletons recipe with a few mods.
8.25 MO
1cry 60
1 wheat
1oz fuggle @ 45
.5 @30
.5. @20
British ale
6 oz medium toasted oak chips soaked 2 wks in Woodford Reserve 1 pint.
1 tblspn vanilla extract at kegging
2 wk primary then oak and Bourben for 3 wks.

Tasty brew. Not as dark as the real deal, maybe 3-5 less SRM. Real close. Still aging on oak in the keg at wk 6.

cavalier distributing has the rights to distribute Kentucky Ale products... if you can find someone in your area that has this vendor you should be able to order it.

I live on the Tn/Ky border, as far as i know they only distibute in Ky and parts of Oh, so it's just a 30 min drive for me. But at $10.99 a 4- pack it's to steep for a decent/good beer. I've paid less for great beers. My wife came back with some today so I could taste test side by side. Cheers.

I had a bottle of the Northern Brewer Bourbon Barrel Porter last night, and it might be the best beer I have ever had. And i am not a porter guy. My buddy said no more until Thanksgiving. Guess I will have to brew my own.

steveO, 6 oz of oak! Wow! I was thinking 2-3 oz of medium toast. I am definitely interested to here how this turns out. I think I will be brewing next weekend so I will have to get this ironed out. Are you planning on adding the bourbon, or just the bourbon soaked oak?
