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.

So Far so Good

Review by Dan on 2/18/2012

I started brewing this beer New Year's day. Kept it in the primary for just under 2 weeks, racked to a secondary and kept it in there for about a month. (I used Jameson, NOT Jack. Jack Daniels and I don't like each other!) The instructions say it takes about 20 days to carbonate. I opened one up after 2 weeks and it had plenty. Tastes a little sweet but will definitely condition beer for like a month. I'm hoping it will mellow a bit. Other then that I think it's fantastic. Since the OG is up there, I recommend using a yeast starter and aerator to reach the FG. Also, just know when you are syphoning to your priming tank that the oak/spice clogs tubing very easily.

I used Jim Beam and did not aerate. It turned out great. I used an igloo 5 gallon cooler for the second fermentor. Definately filter before putting into priming tank. I used a plastic coffee filter. Very smooth and strong.

Good taste, had to oxygnenate it to get the yeast to go, but overall good kit

Difficult to wait!

Best Stoudt Ever

Review by Shawn R. on 11/5/2012

Brewed this on a whim and so glad that I did. Had trouble with the yeast starting but bought another smack pack and off it went. Used 14oz of excellent Scotch and started drinking after a month in bottles. Each couple of bottles gets better and my friends want me to make more. Great kit

Q: If I brew the Whiskey Barrel Stout and age it in an actual wet 5 gal. Bourbon barrel, how long should I age it and at what gravity would I bottle after the aging process?

A: Once you add the whiskey or bourbon in the wet barrel, give it at least 3 months to age. The final gravity will vary but generally is about what is on the instructions.
