I have aged my bourbon brown in secondary with bourbon and wood chips thrown in, it's been aging for 6 months now. It's time to bottle, is there anything I need to do differently than normal before bottling ? I have yeast nutrition that I could add couple of days before bottling, but is that really needed ?
What are you trying to achieve?– MołotMar 3, 2017 at 23:06
What I'm trying to make sure is that I will have enough carbonation– ornMar 3, 2017 at 23:06
I have brewed and bottled beer with wood chips before. The process was exactly like any other beer I did, except that I put wood chips in secondary. Why do you think it should be different?– BobTheAverageMar 4, 2017 at 5:48
After long secondary, only change I world market would be to add fresh yeast slurry, either from vigorously fermenting batch, or from a packet of dry yeast.
Do not add nutrients now. There is a high chance yeast will not eat them and you will be left with nutrient taste.
I have a slurry from the first vessel, I can start that up with some LME and add before sugar and bottle. Good to hear the no go on adding nutrients.– ornMar 4, 2017 at 18:13
