I have brewed the Austin Home Brew Oaked Arrogant Bastard clone brew. I left it in the primary for 10 days. Then I racked it ionto my secondary and added the toasted oak (soaked in some Wild Turkey Rare Breed for a few days to "steralize" ). Wendesday will be 10 days in the secondary. I am going to bottle then. Has any one else brewed this? I am interested in how long to let it age before starting to drink it. I have been told that it will age for a long time and come out better and better the longer you wait. I wopuld be interested in any comments and experances you have had with this one. OAB os my favorait beer of all time. I hope this turne out close to the commerical version.

Its a American Ale, the long you wait the better, but I would think it being a 7 something ABV, a month or so in the bottle would be good, then 3-4 day in the frig.

Thanks grb. I had nothing to add to help you, but am anxious to hear how it turns out and what you might change/add. It is refreshing to see someone with questions come back and let everyone know how it turns out.

LOU2ROW:

Thank you too. Conversation is a 2 way street. If only one person is talking it is a lecture. No one likes a lecture. LOL

The first beer I did with oak chips was awful when I tried the first bottle, the oak flavor was way over the top. After about 5-6 months the oakiness really mellowed out and I had a nice Firestone Walker DBA clone. I suggest waiting on this one.
