Notes

In prep for this brew buy american oak spirals (medium) and a bottle of cheap bourbon (wild turkey or Jim beam). Soak the spirals in the bourbon for 2 months minimum. After primary fermentation of 3-4 weeks, transfer to secondary and add 1 spiral. Leave in secondary to age for up to 4 months. Taste weekly, when happy with flavor bottle next day.
Expect low efficacy due to massive grain bill.
Note: priming volumes is high due to high alcohol thus less CO2 staying in solution.
