Whiskey Rye Timing
« on: June 05, 2013, 07:20:09 pm »
So I am making a batch of Rye ale, that I have made before where I soak it in a secondary fermenter with whiskey barrel chips.  I am a big fan of it, and its worked well when I soak it for about 17 days.  here is the issue now...I am making a batch for a friend, and I have to go out of town just before it hits the secondary fermenter, AND by the time I come back it will have soaked for 24 days.  Is this a bad idea?  Should I teach the friend how to bottle and have them do it while I am out?  Or should I just let it sit?

Let it sit and then add the chips when you have more control over their timing.
