Step by step
If you do not have a used Bourbon barrel for aging, then soak the oak cubes in the Bourbon of your choice at least two weeks before brew day to recreate the barrel aging essence. Also, use two sachets if using a dry yeast or make a large starter if using liquid yeast. You may consider re-pitching yeast from a previous batch as well.

In a mesh bag, mash Pilsen and melanoidin malts and flaked oats in 2 gallons (7.6 L) of water at 149 °F (65 °C) for 60 minutes. Steep the rest of your grains for 10 minutes in a separate mesh bag. Drain bags and add water to make 3 gallons (11 L) of wort. Raise to near boiling, then remove pot from heat and slowly stir in half of your malt extract until dissolved. Return to the heat source and boil for 60 minutes.

Add bittering hops and sugars at the beginning of boil. With 10 minutes remaining, remove again from boil and stir in the rest of the malt extract.

Follow the remainder of the all-grain recipe, topping up to 5.5 gallons (21 L) in the fermenter.

At flameout, whirlpool, then rapidly chill the wort to 68 °F (20 °C) and transfer the wort to your fermenter. Oxygenate the wort if using a liquid yeast strain or re-using yeast, then pitch the yeast. Set the fermenter in a cool, dark place to ferment at about 68 °F (20 °C).

After fermentation is complete, add your soaked oak cubes, or rack to a secondary vessel containing the cubes. After achieving the desired flavor profile, crash cool, keg and force carbonate to 2.5 volumes, or prime and bottle condition.
