    Founders Backwoods Bastard is always limited and one of my favorites.

    I have done a lot of searching. The only information I can find is four different caramel malts. 10.2% ABV and 50 IBUs.

    Here is the recipe I came up.

    Golden Promise - 89%
    Special B- 3.33%
    Caramel 120- 2.22%
    Caramel 60-2.22%
    Carapils 2.22%
    Chocolate 1.11%

    Magnum to 50 IBUs

    Add 8 ounces Bourbon and Medium French Oak to Secondary. Tasting weekly to watch out for over oaking.

    Anyone on with experience with a BB Wee Heavy?

    If you do brew it please let us know how it turns out because I would love to take a shot at making a BB clone. Good luck!
