Never heard of that one!  But if you like imperial porters, I highly recommend you brew Denny's BVIP.  I like it best with the original recipe, using WY1450 and Denny's suggestion of using Jim Beam Black.

Yep, that looks like the one!  I've scaled the grain amounts a bit to fit my system's efficiency.  I end up adding 375 mL Jim Beam Black to the keg.  I've tried it with Maker's Mark and Buffalo Trace too, but I like the Jim Beam Black the best.  This beer is a hit with everyone, and I brew a batch each year to secure my deer-hunting land.  Gotta love the barter system.  Go for it!

I too have brewed this with different bourbons. JB Black, Makers, and Old Forrester.  I’m doing another in the next 2 weeks. I’m splitting a 10 gallon batch with Early Times and Basil Hayden. I’m making the Basil Hayden for someone else. I used to think the bourbon didn’t matter, but it does. I did not like the Old Forrester.

Wow, Basil Hayden is some fairly spendy stuff.  Good thing you don't need a whole lot of it!  I have a batch ready to rack onto beans now.  My 1450 was not ready, so I went with WY1728 Scottish Ale on this one.  We'll see how it turns out.  I plan to do another batch with 1450 once I grow enough yeast.

Question.

Is one pack of the Wyeast labs 1450 enough for this almost 9% beer?

Thx

I’ve never been one to spend on bourbon. He brought me the Basil. I’ll drink what is left. I can’t wait for this beer to be ready.
