Ok here is a shot of the Bourbon I am gonna use in this beer
BEFORE the Oak spirals which are Med+ American Oak.
And here is the same Bourbon In a vac pack bag with 2 Oak spirals
after 2 weeks notice the amount of tannins infused into the Bourbon as
reflected in the VERY dark Color.
When the time comes to put the Bourbon and Vanilla Beans in Secondary, I will sample the liquid in the
spiral bag and try to guage the level of oak....I may or may not add any of that strong liquid...dunno....
However, It will NOT goto waste.
