Kinda an idea for something me and a couple of friends want to brew.. Kinda wanted to get some outside opinions on the recipe. Trying to keep around 12% alcohol. *Will BIAB, this is also a first mash, always done extract.hoping to get an *Efficiency: 65% hoping that's not unreasonable. I put low amounts of the same grains you would use in a whiskey and will soak chips in a burboun whiskey. I appreciate any tips and tricks.

You could prolly replace some of the light lme with amber and not worry bout the crystal, but te others would at least need steeping... Don't honk rye is steeped well. And you could use corn syrup, but would not get the same outcome. Maybe some one else has an idea bout that.

So we will prolly be doing the brew in the next 3 Sunday's. I think we have all decided on the finally brew ingredients. Except the whiskey we will soak in. But we have an idea.

Ok so i went to the store to get everything. It cost me and insane amount of money for all of the grains and extract, somewhere in the neighborhood of 60$. They didn't have the summit hops so i substituted for simcoe. The recipe doesn't indicate what kin of oak chips so i went with light toast chips. And instead of the white labs 0099 i went with 3 packets of dry champagne yeast to handle the high abv.

Hey sorry I been busy, yeah I planed on it being a pricy grain bill, I am picking up the supplies as well and I also changed over to a champagne yeast and I was also going to use light toast... Have you brewed already or are you brewing this weekend?
