Bourbon Barrel Porter Beer Recipe Kit

SKU 1600



Product Details

Aged on Bourbon-soaked American oak, flavors of coffee, vanilla and caramel intensify into a blizzard of dark fruit, toasted oak and whiskey.

The jet-black body is blanketed in a dirty coffee-cream colored head that offers aromas of smoky, burnt biscuit and a touch of wood on the nose. Robust roasted malt character accumulates alongside caramel sweetness and hops for an intense yet refined flavor profile.

Wonderfully balanced, Bourbon Barrel Porter is smooth and full-bodied, cellaring well for an increasingly complex and satisfying brew.

If you enjoyed Snow Plow Porter, or Bourbon Barrel Old Ale, you'll love this kit!

Very good beer

Very good beer. I used 1792 bourbon (my favorite) and it was excellent. You want a smooth flavorful bourbon with this, not a harsh one.

Smells good

My bourbon barrel has been bottled but won’t be ready to drink until next weekend. The uncarberated Beer was delicious with a fabulous bourbon taste.

Bourbon Barrel Porter

This is the 3rd time I have made this beer. Each time I have brewed it, the yeast takes off for a few days and then stops. The gravity gets to around 1.020 and I can't get it to go further. I ended up dumping the first batch (which in hindsight I shouldn't have done). The second batch it did the same thing but I bottled it and it was amazing! I now have a third batch in the secondary that I will bottle in a couple of weeks. It did the same thing but I am going ahead and bottling it. I'm thinking that a gravity of 1.020 is good enough. If you buy this kit and it gets stuck for you, keep going. It is what I call my "after dinner" beer. A very nice treat!
