Bourbon County Stout a big beer (13-15% varies a bit yearly). It's aged in bourbon barres and the label says it can age and develop an additional five years in the bottle.

Now, that grain bill likely pushes the very upper limits of your mash tun, if not exceeds it. Your mash will likely be a thicker ratio than you're normally used to mashing at. This can have a negative affect on your brewhouse efficiency. Because of this, It's a good idea to have several pounds of light extract on hand in case you don't hit your numbers.

Higher OG beers require a bit more oxygenation as they do not absorb oxygen as easily. You should also consider oxygenating twice, once at pitch, and once 12 hours later. For those without an oxygen tank, set a timer for 5 minutes and vigorously shake your fermenter to achieve desired aeration.

If using oak chips: Soak the chips in bourbon while the beer is fermenting. When fermentation is mostly done, add the bourbon and oak to the beer.
