Add Oak And Bourbon To Keg
So you made an amazing barleywine or vanilla porter and want to take it to the next level? Easy, go buy a large barrel and follow these instructions.
If that's too much trouble, perhaps the method of oaking I'm using here will work instead. The basic idea is to soak the chips in bourbon and suspend them in a way that can be removed later according to taste.
We are infusing two 5 gallon batches, one that will age for 6 months and another for a full year.
