I love bourbon. Back when I didn't now there was any beer other than BMC, I thought I didn't like beer. But I liked rum, tequila, gin, whiskeys, etc., pretty much most hard liquors. I have never been much for shots, though I like to sip. I also like mixing. My favorite drink of all time is Beam and Coke. If distilling was legal, that would probably be my biggest hobby.

Then I found real beer.

Anyway, to make a short story long...

Does anybody have a good AG recipe for a beer with a touch of bourbon? My favorite beers are big, malty brews with just a hint of hops.

Has anybody made a Scotch ale with Scotch?

Porters. Almost any of them could probably benefit from a glug or two of good bourbon in the secondary. There was a fair amount of discussion about this awhile back here-- maybe about a year ago-- if you feel like doing a search.

I think you'd really like the bourbon vanilla porter then. Big beer, tons of flavor, very unique. A little pricy, though.
