Hey all, new here. Looking for a little advice.

I want to brew this Bourbon County Clone this weekend but I am limited to partial mash. I was going to take the last recipe from Nova and sub the Pale Ale Malt grain with Pale Liquid Extract. Does this make sense?

I used beersmith to put this together and it looks like 11 lbs of Extract to get me to 11.63% ABV. That leaves 8 lbs of grain to mash still.

Is there any reason to partial mash the Pale Ale Malt grain? Say a few pounds. Or is it all the same to go completely extract for that.

Appreciate any help,
Thanks!
I put his recipe in BeerSmith and came up with 11 lbs of Pale Ale Liquid extract, and 3.5 lbs of 2-row. Then all the other specialty grains.

I was not looking to actually get 13% ABV from my recipe. 11.5 was my target. I read somewhere else that the brewery shoots for 11.5% and the bourbon barrels are so concentrated that the beer absorbs enough alcohol to get to 13%. (at least on the last run) I plan on adding a pint or so of Makers Mark on oak and finishing out at 12% ABV.

Anybody have results that have brewed this? The last posts were 6+ months ago. There should be some good test runs out there now.

Hah, I went to my LHBS on Friday to pick up the ingredients and they were closed for renovation until Tuesday!! Talk about a buzz kill.

I brewed my version yesterday. My hydrometer doesn't go high enough to get a decent reading. Mine stops at 1090. I'm guessing it was up around 1120. But it's my understanding that the brewery shoots for an OG of 30 plato & a FG of 10, which would come out to 11.5-11.8% and it gets the other point or two from the bourbon barrels.

Anybody know how much oak chips to add to get a similar effect of using a bourbon barrel? I was thinking of 3 oz and at least a pint of bourbon. Possible a full fifth of bourbon. I recently did a different bourbon stout and used a pint and I could barely taste bourbon.

My BCS #2 turned out great. In fact, I made a stout from the second runnings (plus some extra specialty grains) that won a local contest entered in the Sweet Stout category and the next year I won the best in show with the first runnings beer from that exact same batch (RIS category).

Oddly enough, I am planning to make this same beer again tomorrow. I might replace the C120 with some British Extra Dark Crystal, but that's about the only change.
