Notes

I will make 2 of these batches over a 2 week period and then once they are both done with primary aging in separate vessels and secondary aging with whiskey chips in separate vessels, I will blend them together at bottling time.

Make 4 liter starter of US-05 and a 3 Liter starter of WLP099 (super high gravity). Pitch both in at beginning.

Primary will be about 3 weeks and secondary will be about 2 months with jack daniels whiskey chips that were soaked in heaven hill bourbon.

Bottle with no more than about 2 ounces of cane sugar.

Takes about 3 or 4 months before they are actually drinkable. Best after about 1 year.
