Notes

Adding Whisky Barrel Chips

Whisky Barrel Chips must be sanitized by boiling in 1 cup of water for 5 minutes. After your chips have been sanitized, add to them to sanitized jar with bourbon and vanilla bean while beer is in primary. Before adding to secondary, remove liquid bourbon adding just the chips and bean to secondary. You may add fresh bourbon to secondary for flavor. Firmly secure your airlock on to your fermenter. Leave your beer in contact with these chips for 2 to 3 weeks. On bottling day carefully siphon your beer away from the chips and into your bottling bucket. If you do not use a secondary fermenter, then add the chips to your primary after fermentation has completed and leave for the recommended contact time.
