While shopping the other day at my local grocer I was pleasantly surprised to find bags of Jack Daniels Old No. 7 Wood Smoking Chips. About 3 LB. for $6.And at yet another grocery store I found 2.2 lb. cans of Premier Hopped Light Malt Extract syrup which even comes with a pack of yeast all for $5.99. WOO HOO :!: There's hope for this po boy brewer yet.I got the last can they had but they said they would order more. I have been wanting to try some of the recipes ( for whiskey) that call for malt extract but the cheapest my LHBS has is $12.00. I can also resume making beer so I'll have a nice cold chaser for the high proof hooch. :beer:

I would be cautious about using the hopped Malt Extract syrup in your whiskey. The hop bitterness that we like so much in our beer carries over into the whiskey and doesn't taste too good.....Great find on the oak.

put your location in your profile so people will know where to look for the oak......just a general location...not address :D

The malt was found at "United", a grocer that we have here in the mid-west. I'm going to try it regardless, it's too good of a price to not try it. It shouldn't carry any more hop flavors than when you run a finished beer which I've read doesn't.The oak was at a family run grocer that only exists in my home town, but look on the isle that has charcoal at a store near you. I've also heard that "Wally World" and "Bass Pro Shops" carry it.And a while back I found some that came in chunk form , it was in a bag along with charcoal, I separated out the chunks and split them into nice sticks about 3" x 1/2", toasted some , charred some.These were at a farm and home supply called "Atwoods". You never know what you'll find that you can use for our purposes until you see it. :wink:

Pint, this is an absolutely brilliant write up

It's exactly what i've been interested in doing myself, and can't believe i'm only finding this experiment of yours now.

Thanks for the effort that you put into it...I have really been enjoying toasted dominos! :D

Bump. Anything recent (other than the nuclear option)?

Anyone know where to find peated DME in North America?
