I've had it, yet I will be of no help. I don't remember it being that estery in the yeast department, however.

No it was not. I could ferment in the low 60's but I think I'd trade lower spice for lower ester.

EDIT: The JD Barrels were not included in the quote either so I need to ask about that also.
Nooooo!! I ordered both of those things. How will I compare fortified bourbon/oak to barreled?!

0.38 6.00 2 Row or Vienna
0.29 4.50 Smoked Malt
0.22 3.50 Rye
0.02 0.25 Honey Malt
0.03 0.50 Carapils or Wheat
0.06 1.00 .75 lbs of Honey
15.75 Pounds of Malt
24.00 Quarts
1.52 Quarts/Pounds
I've had it and won't make that mistake again. Can't help on the recipe unfortunately. There's something in it though that makes it taste distinctly like drinking a ham sandwich. And it wasn't pleasant. I don't think I even finished the pint.
It's been a few years and I'd like to think my tastes have changed, but that beer left a pretty big scar.

I thought of this after the order went through. But for all of the individual 8# orders, we could have all pooled that money and gotten several 50# pails and split it up.

one of my very articulate friends tried this beer and he described it as tasting like "****". I took his word for it and didn't bother trying it for myself.

Only thing missing from that recipe is the ham bone.

Honestly, one of the very few 3F brews I haven't enjoyed.

If this makes things easer, I'm game for splitting a 50#?
