Our Whiskey Barrel Stout is a strong stout with oak and whiskey flavors blending with the rich black malt base. Nine ounces of your whiskey or bourbon are needed when bottling this beer to give it a distinctive flavor, which you control by the type of spirit used. We used Jack Daniels Old No. 7® which produced a classic whiskey profile, although you are free to try any quality whiskey or bourbon. Alcohol: 9-10%, IBU's 35.
Includes 11 pounds of our blended malt extract, flavoring and aromatic hops, granular oak, spices, liquid yeast, and carbonating sugar. This kit is rated advanced because a Yeast Starter Kit, Ssecondary Fermenter, and Oxygen Aeration System are required.
We recommend a minimum of 3 months aging on this one, to give the oak, whiskey, and malt flavors a chance to blend. Click on the More Info link above to see a picture of this beer in the glass.

Advanced Brewing Kit Special Brewing Requirements:
Due to the high alcohol level and subsequent need to give the yeast every opportunity to fully ferment this beer, you must have a Yeast Starter Kit and an Oxygen Aeration System to brew this kit. See our items Q27 and S78 for details. Also, the wort must be held at a minimum of 68 degrees F. during the entire ferment.
