Oh those do look nice! I may have to get one too

Update on my barrel: I had a few emails back and forth from the seller and although I didn't get a straight answer as to what the white stuff is, I now think it's wax. I've had water sitting in it for a few days now so I'm going to fill it with beer today. I'll report back in a few days.

the barrel i got from the group buy was from one of those classified group buys, but my barrel is # 138, and cost around $125 after shipping.

No it was a guy in Turkey. $125's not bad, I'd definitely be interested if they do it again.

MMMMmmm Baby Blue!!!
I am going to dump the XX stout recipe we got from the brewer at Mad River in mine. They age theirs in a used whiskey barrel for 100 days. So.. Thats what I'm gonna do too. Brewed it last night along with the Vertical Epic from Stone.

Jay,
100 days may be overkill in a barrel that size. You have a lot more oak surface area per gallon than a full sized whiskey barrel, I have read at least a 3x (someone said 20?? not sure about that) increase in "oak aging" compared to a standard barrel, but I'm no mathematician or scientist. I put clear spirits in for one month and they were transformed into whiskey colored smooth tasty woody sweetness. I think Balcones used roughly one month as well. 2 weeks made an impact on my barleywine.

Those are beautiful. I would be interested in joining a group buy on this. Anyone else interested...? Montanaandy
