Stupid question...but I am making an 11% stout with bourbon oak added. I have never kegged anything higher than a 7% so not sure what to expect.

Will the higher abv allow it to last longer in the keg to drink all Winter? Should I add more bourbon so the taste doesn't dissipate? Anything else I should think about?

Thanks for the help

Kegged beer should last almost as long as bottled beer if sanitation and gas pressures are properly maintained. I don't think you need to do anything different because you are kegging it. The high ABV should allow you to store it in a keg for many months if not years.

  • Thanks! Looking forward to having a heavy one on tap for when I have to shovel the snow
