Carbonation and Storage
|Kate the Great Clone recipe gathered from various websites. Personally I have never had the original, so a side by side comparison is next to impossible. I am also expecting my brewhouse effentcy to drop 8% due to the high grain bill. Planning on adding Table Sugar to make up for any loss. |
For the aging...I put Oak Chips in a Bourbon solution for about month as a "presoak". When I added them to the keg I poured out any excess Bourbon. Granted some got it but that was not my intent. I stored the keg with the chips for over 6 months.
I will store it until the taste is right then serve on tap and in bottles. I changed the bittering hops due to what I had on hand.
Created with BeerSmith
Today (Dec 13, 2011) I bottled half this beer and kegged the other half. After about 6 months on the oak cubes. For the priming sugar, I used 1/3 cup of table sugar. The kegged 1/2 will be served by CO2.
The beer is on draft at the house and with only 2.5 gallons I'm sure it will go quick. The other 12, 22 oz bottles are carbing and will be stuffed away for something special. To read the final review Click HERE.
