A friend of mine homebrews. For his most recent beer I helped him make it. What started off as a plain old milk stout turned into the most potent beer I’ve ever drank.

The place where we got the supplies
Very potent hops
Brewing in progress
This is where things started getting interesting. My friend bought a bourbon barrel to have the beer sit in for a couple months. This changes the flavor and increases the alcohol content.
Preparing to extract
Extracting. Some went into a keg and some bottles. They’ll be conditioning for a few more weeks to gain some carbonation.
Three samples.

It’s a very nicely flavored beer, although it’s very bourbony. Smooth and very strong.
