I have to ask. If you're not collaborating, exactly what are you going to do with 60 gallons of beer?

Drinking it I guess. Can't find anyone who wants to do any collaborating. I guess I could put up a post or something to see if there is anyone around here that I can get in on the project.

Never mind. I see you are up on OR. Surely there is a homebrew scene up there. Maybe you could persuade a local brewery to let you brew on their system. Or collaborate with them on a new brew and grab your 2 barrels worth?

Vegan, have you thought about having a local club help with the barrel fill? That's how we got our barrels; a guy (who's now in our club) moved here from NoCal with 4 newly acquired barrels and sought our club out. We just got 13-14 guys in on each barrel and it made it go really smoothly, though of course the beer has to be shared that way. Keep in mind that you will need extra beer (on top of the ~60 gal for filling) on hand to top up the barrel due to evap. We shot for ~70 gal for each barrel, and are already having extra 5 gal batches brewed to keep on hand in the barrel room for top up.

I know you started another thread and have apparently found some cohorts, but you only have to fill it alone once to get a solera going.
