Steep grains at 155 for 55 minutes.


One week before brewing, soak 1/4 lb toasted oak chips in 1/4 cup bourbon, allowing it to rest uncovered until all traces of liquid are gone. Pack chips in sealed container until brew day. Place chips in large enough container to cover with two inches of water and cover. When racking to secondary, separate chips from liquid, dispose of chips, and put liquid in a pan. Bring to a boil, let cool, and add half to secondary. At bottling, check oak flavor and adjust as necessary.

Also added a few brandied cherries along with some juice to the kettle, and, for authenticity's sake, flamed an orange peel over the finished wort.
