Just want to say hello as a new user/member & book owner here. Fun to get in on the ground floor of your new forum and site. Looks like it could get pretty popular pretty soon.
I have an Imperial Red Rye Ale (5 gal.) that's currently in it's second week of three in secondary ferm.
It's like this:
12.5 lb pale malt
1.5 lb rye malt
1.5 lb melanoiden
1 lb carafoam
1/2 oz warrior @ 60 mn
1/2 oz ekg & willamette @ 20 mn
1/2 oz ekg & willamette @ 5 mn
1 lb honey @ flameout
1 liter starter WY 1187 ringwood ale
The experimental part:
3 oz american oak chips soaked in Makers Mark Bourbon & 3 oz M/M bourbon added to the secondary.
So far, it all looks, smells and tastes great. You guys are right, this experimental stuff is pretty cool!
