Alright thanks!

However, the recipe I'm using doesn't specify what my OG and FG should be. What should I be aiming for?

What you want is a beer that has enough flavor to stand up to the whiskey/oak flavor. Doesn't have to be a big beer to do that. Stouts & porters are most commonly used.

That makes sense!!

Another question...I'm full of questions!!

This particular beer is going to be made with a one gallon kit, which I have two of. Two packs both including the grains, hops, and yeast. If I combined them and made a two gallon batch, would i still use both yeast packets?

I'd say one packet,if it's a regular sized packet of 5-7g or so.

A 3 gallon would be great. Maybe a food grade 3G pail with a lid?

I think I would prefer a glass carboy, and my LHBS has one for about 20 dollars. Fantastic!!
