I want to add a touch of rum to a beer but not sure how to go about it. Everything I've read about adding barrel aged liquor to beer tells me to soak the liquor in wood chips or cubes and add the wood and liquor to the beer which I'm OK with. My question, assuming this is the best way about it, is; about how much rum should I soak the cubes in, for how long and how long should I let the cubes and rum sit in with the beer before I bottle? Alternatively, I'm OK with just adding the rum to the bottling bucket, rack and then bottle but, again, I'm not sure how much to use. I'll try to pull a 12oz sample and do 3 samples with different amounts of rum added but I'd like a jumping-off point and I may not have the time to do this.
I'm currently deciding between;
El Dorado 8 Year
Plantation 5 Year
Sailor Jerry (I'ts a Navy-inspired beer and I'm OK with it being spiced)
