Infusion mash at 154 for 1 hour. Sparge w/ 180 f water to reach your preboil water level.
Toast the rolled oats at 325° F in a convection oven for 1 hours to achieve
a light brown toast.
Turbinado sugar addition will go into secondary fe
rmenter. Invert the sugar by mixing the sugar in ratio of 3:1 by weight wi
th water. Bring to a boil until sugar completely disolved. Add 1 tsp lemo
n juice and simmer until sugar solution turns clear.
Add 3 oz of sanitized oak cubes (I steamed them for 10 minutes) to secondary and allow to sit for at least 4 weeks. I let mine sit for 6 weeks on the oak cubes.
Steep 1/2 tsp gro
und cinnamon, 1/4 tsp fresh grated nutmeg, 1/4 tsp whole cloves, and 1 spli
t and scraped vanilla bean in 6 ounces bourbon until time to keg. Strain
bourbon and add to keg to taste.
