Any way you could PM or email us homebrewtalk guys before you put the next kits on sale? Would love to try this and really want the actual barrel chunks. Or can I just pay ahead an reserve one or 2?

They have some extract versions available, but 50 bucks just to take the barrel chunks is a little pricey

Maybe for you, but for those of use who don't live where we can get bottles of RR very easily to pitch the dregs, those barrel chunks can be great. In fact, I wish they'd just sell the chunks.

Very sorry all for the back ordered kits. We're working feverishly to keep these on the shelves. If you're interested in placing an order for the kit when it's on back order you're certainly able to do so - just call our customer service department at 1.800.600.0033 and ask them if you can place a back ordered invoice for the consecration kits and they'll be able to help you with that. Cheers!

Just curious about the barrels, I know the chunks have some bugs already impregnated in them...but say you pitch the kit wood and some of your own..aside to it adding more of the barrel flavor would it inoculate the new wood as well?

Yes, the colony would most likely occupy the new oak over time (how long it would take, I'm not sure). Do keep in mind though that adding more oak on top of the chunk(s) that is already provided would probably over-oak the beer, so be cautious when doing this. If you were looking to inoculate other oak chunks you'd probably be best off doing so in a different carboy. Maybe a 5000mL flask (Y450). Make a yeast starter essentially, but just pitch the consecration oak chunk with other oak, and let it go for 2-3 months or longer? Then you could just pitch that entire thing into your next project, or just take the oak from it that should theoretically have bugs crawling all over it!

Great question leolee - thanks again everyone for your interest in the kit. We hope it turns out well for everybody!

you could also boil your cubes/chips/chunks in water for about 10 minutes and pour off the liquid to help neutralize them before adding.

Just ordered this kit last night. I've heard great things about the "real" version and it's impossible to get in Pennsylvania, so brewing my own is the next best thing! Looking forward to it!

I bought a bunch in Philly. Apparently there's a worm hole in the beer-space continuum that allows RR to distribute there (and Denver IIRC).
