I'm thinking about brewing this. They are recommending a 6-12 month aging in the Secondary. Does anyone have any experience with this and is 12 months necessary to get the best results? Also, Wouldn't it be better to get the Oak separately from the kit and begin the soaking with bourbon like 6-8 weeks before you brew it?

I hope that was an accidental cross post meant for another forum, and not a drive by rant.

I would like to hear more about how Jim Beam works for someone. I was just thinking about Denny's comment that the Bourbon should be subtle and not foreward.
Before you judge someone, be sure to walk a mile in their kilt. That way you are at least a mile away, and you have their kilt...

What?! Fifteen cases of beer and not a drop to drink!

I brewed this beer last August. I brought it to the club and some of the experienced members liked it very much.
In retrospect, I should have aged it 12 months before tasting it, not 6.
Does it taste any different, I can't remember. But at least I'd have a lot more of it remaining.

I used 10 ounces of Makers Mark, not 16, because I wanted a hint of Bourbon, not a diluted Bourbon drink.
