I'll take a swing...
Yes, you get lots of raisin and rum flavor in the final beer.
The rum leftover is also pretty wicked too.
It is November and we were having a wind free 60 degree bananna belt day
the boil is going I just finished skimming hot break off and I see this thing
that I thought was a spider dangling by my hat bill.....so I grabbed my hat
and swatted it down.....it was a HONEY BEE!.....I am thinking wow this is
so strange....so i picks her up and takes her outside (tactfully avoiding the
stinger that was being deployed in a futile attempt to snag me) I set
her down and she disappears....I go back to the garage and then much
to my amazement I am visited by 5 -6 more honey bees. They were detecting
the sugar fumes and there is NOTHING blooming for them to eat and the warm day
had them active. It was way strange.
Bigchicken, I have a raisin oatmeal cookie amber recipe that doesn't use raisins and you would swear that it does. It came from bugeater in Omaha. I think he is on thebrewingnetwork forum. But if you want the recipe I can give it. This is one awesome beer.
For my imperial porter fermented with WLP530 - I caramelized 1 pound of raisins ala Lost Abbey (torched them till blistered and smoldering) then pureed the batch with wort drawn from the kettle. The pulp went into the hop bag at 60 minutes.
The porter may mask the raisin flavor. Only time will tell.
