Notes
  • EKGoldings & StyrianGoldings are subs for Glacier.
  • Mill grain twice

  • Try sparging in blue bucket while kettle heats up

  • Primary ferment for 3 weeks in bottling bucket, with new airlock & blowoff hose

  • Bourbon soak vanilla bean (just to cover) & oak cubes (4oz bourbon) separately for 7 days

  • When racking to secondary, add vanilla bean with its bourbon, and the soaked oak cubes (maybe without its bourbon)
  • Secondary for 1 week in primary bucket, with normal airlock

    BrewToad said:
    Strike grains with 6.84 gal of water at 172.6 °F.
    Mash at 158 °F for 60 min.
    Rinse the grain in 2.35 gal sparge water at 168 °F.
    Drain the grain bag and combine the mash and sparge water to make 7 gal wort.
