Classic Review
This is the best beer I've brewed to date. Brewed 4/30/12, bottled 5/25/12 and enjoying it mid September 2012. Extraordinarily vigorous fermentation using dry yeast. My first fermentation in a Better Bottle. Extra head space didn't make a difference. Blow-off tube clogged up twice, made an awful mess, exploded on the walls and the ceiling! Lost three liters due to the mess. The bonus of this fermentation in the Better Bottle was watching it churn - it looked like I had a blender installed inside, the fermentation was going nutso. I knew right away that this brew would be a special one. I let it sit in the primary for two weeks. Transferred to glass carboy for another two weeks with the oak chips. I was real hesitant to dedicate my prized Maker's Mark (9 oz) to the bottling bucket but did it - and do not regret it. It has superb mouthfeel, a delicious aroma, and the Maker's Mark finish seals the deal. If I wasn't living in Central Asia, I would submit this in a competition. I am someone that always looks for a hoppy profile, and I brewed this just to expand my horizons beyond tongue-exploding hop monsters. This beer has made me think differently about porters and this style altogether. This beer is the reason why I homebrew, full stop.

Great Recipe
Did the Mini Mash kit, added 8oz of corn sugar for a bit of alcohol boost and aged the beer on brandied cherries in secondary for about 3 weeks. I substituted the brandied cherry juice for the whiskey and added that to secondary as well. Came out amazing! better after being in bottles for a few months.

I brewed this batch a few weeks ago. The fermentation, in my basement, was pretty slow, so it spent 2 weeks in primary, and 2 weeks in secondary. The oak chips provided actually imparted a lot of whiskey flavor during the secondary. I was a bit worried what adding half a bottle of Maker's Mark would do, but it's AWESOME! I honestly could drink this flat and warm and be happy as a clam. The recipe recommends letting this one age for 4 months, but I really doubt much of it will make it that long. I will definitely make this again.

Oh man, I brewed this beer last year and it was by far the best beer I have brewed yet! I've been brewing for over 2 years and this beer came out incredible. If you were going to compete at a homebrew contest, this is without a doubt the kit I would use to compete in the competition. HIGHLY recommended!!!

I brewed the extract version of this beer in June 2012 (before I upgraded to AG), and it is definitely the most popular kit recipe I've done. Several friends have given the thumbs up to brew it again, and after bottle conditioning for 10 months now I have to agree. Maker's Mark was very identifiable - I plan to use Woodford, Wild Turkey, or Knob Creek next time and see how it affects the beer overall. Fantastic kit, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Chris L. Great recipe and easy brew. Followed the instructions to a "T". Made a yeast starter and use compressed O2 and diffusion stone. Had vigorous fermentation within 4 hrs at 60 degrees in fermentation chamber. Held at 60 for 4 days and increased to 68 towards 2 week mark. FG at 1.015, cold crashed and racked to secondary. Adde oak and makers mark and 4 Bourbon vanilla beans for 11 days. Bottled last week. Beer tastes great "green". I plan on letting it sit 4-6 months to let the oak mellow and the flavors to meld.

Brewed this late last year, 1 month primary 2 months secondary with final 11 days on oak. Added Makers & 1oz Pecan flavoring at bottling. Hid it away for 4 months, tasted very balanced with each flavor developing across the palate with each sip. At 8 months old it has come together wonderfully, making a great dessert beer (it is quite sweet). I enjoy the way people smile as they identify the components; it has become by far my most demanded beer by friends & family.
