Change Water chemistry for Culver City

OH man, I'm excited about the new recipe. =D

There are no notes from the ageing process I used last time. Briefly, . . .
I used my environmental chamber at work to effectively lager the brew (ale yeast), basically, drop the temp to about 52F, and added oak probably 3 times. Each time soaking in bourbon and adding all soaking bourbon, too. I probably added bourbon in 1-2 week, periods then removed, first the cubes, then the spirals I bought. All new wood. This time, I'll use the same wood, but I've had the cubes in bulliet rye whiskey for about two months now. I think, maybe Maker's. No straight Whiskey. I saved the bottle. This time, I'll shoot from the hip and age in my closet, but the Nov. temps should be nice for ageing (ave ~ 60F). Add oak around T-Day and age as long as I can wait, or until Xmas. Bottle on Dec 11th to have ready for Xmas. ONly 2 wks ageing :\ . . . New Year Beer ?
