Kentucky Breakfast Stout® KBS Clone - Bourbon Belle Brunch Stout (Extract)

Kentucky Breakfast Stout® KBS Clone - Bourbon Belle Brunch Stout (Extract)

Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

Bourbon Belle takes the beautifully complex flavor of Brunch Stout and adds a charming southern drawl. Similar to "All Out", this recipe combines a variety of dark malts, cacao nibs, and ground coffee for a remarakably rich flavor profile, and then adds a little giddy-up with an addition of bourbon-soaked oak chips. The oak chips are added to simulate the barrel-aging process used for making Founders Kentucky Breakfast Stout®, or "KBS". You wouldn't expect a foal to win the Triple-Crown, so practice patience when brewing Bourbon Belle. We recommend a conditioning period of 2 to 6 months to allow this beer to fully mature before entering the race.
Please note: this recipe calls for 2 oz of Kona and Sumatra coffee grounds and 1 cup of Kentucky Bourbon, which are not included in the kit.

Please Note: In order to better serve our customers, we are now offering our extract recipe kits with either Liquid Malt Extract (LME) or Dried Malt Extract (DME). The majority of our DME kits were converted from the LME version, which is why you may notice slight variances in the extract names and quantities on your recipe sheet. You may also find that your Specific Gravity and ABV% are slightly higher if you choose DME. Whether LME or DME, add all extracts provided according to the recipe sheet.

Read the instructions but one thing isn't clear. After soaking oak chips in 1 cup of Bourbon, do I just add the bourbon-soaked oak chips to the secondary? Or add those as well as the remaining Bourbon?

BEST ANSWER: We've done it both ways, and it's a matter of taste. If you want it really boozy then you can add the liquor in there too. You can always save the extra bourbon and add it later on as you taste the oak developing.

Now for the long wait......
Just finished putting this one in the primary fermentation stage. Kit was complete and straight forward, as MoreBeer's always have been. You'll need to self source 8oz bourbon & 2oz each of Kona and Sumatra coffee. I opted to buy 5 K-cups of each type of coffee from my local store that sells them individually. Ill carboy it in 5-7 days then bottle once I'm sure its done fermenting. My OG came out at 1.072, a whisker shy of the 1.078 target. I'm still doing stove top boils with 3+ gals so that's probably why. Should be ready to drink in January! tick tock tick tock
