Bourbon added to secondary

(1/2) > >>

jbar:
So i am making a bourbon barrel porter, aged with oak cubes and straight bourbon (2oz cubes and 14 oz makers mark). My question is, will the addition of the bourbon kill off/weaken the yeast enough to be concerned with bottle conditioning? I saved the yeast cake and it is in the refrigerator. Should i add some yeast back before bottling or am i being overly worrisome?

dbeechum:
Your 14 oz addition of Bourbon will raise the abv of the beer by ~0.8% I wouldn't sweat it.
