Not sure. Friend of mine parents run the great taste, and we usually go with her. Usually we donate items, or labor on clean up for our tix. Works out to be a good deal for both. Unfortunately she isnt well this year. So, I'd have a hard time going, even if I bought my tix..

Never know, we shall see what takes place.

Sounds like a good combination, apple & IPA!

I have had great beer come from wood aging. Congrats on your. If your hop is low hit it with a little dry hop little Citra or Sarrachi Ace might be just the ticket to get the hop nose and blend the wood. My last barrel aged IPA was in a 3gal barrel and I blended back with 1.5g of unaged. I let the notes frome barrel get sharp then pulled it and blended, 4.5g lasted 2.5weeks. Good thing I have more going.
Try a lit dry hop might brighten that thing up a bit.

Thats actually not a bad idea.....I assume your 3 gal barrell was wood?

I already kegged, so we will let this one ride.

Is there a place to get wood barrels reasonably?

Not a bad looking brew. I can't quite describe the taste. I pick up the hops, sweet from the apple wood an malt, dryness of wood (in finish) and apple tartness.

Couple more days on the gas and a bit of aging and we shall see.

I have a guava tree which died this year. I know it is good for BBQ/smoking. Anyone ever try it in beer?

I may be a month late but the new issue of Zymurgy has a nice article on Wood Aging. Specific to this is the passage about not raking the beer too soon due to the perceived woody flavor after a few weeks. After that harsher flavor comes sweetness from the wood near the 4 week mark. Patience comes in handy when wood aging! I've got a huge very old cherry tree I may use a branch for an experiment as well as a wealth of exotic woods I've been itching to do something with.
