If it's just a matter of needing a vehicle, I have a van we could steal... I mean load the barrel into. As long as it's not TOO far away.

I made a NW group if anyone cares to join.

Looking forward to another brew day sometime soon. I still need to do my first AG batch at sometime.

This still sounds fun. It can be hard for me to get down there, but I would enjoy the chance to meet some of my fellow HBTers.

OK kids...I finally made the 1hour 15min trip out to Oregon Wine Country to pick up the Pinot Barrel. Still trying to get the full story on it, but the bung sure smelled like pinot! It has a stamp on it of 2004 so I'm assuming it's 4 years old. Trying to find out when it was used and emptied. Here are two pics:





So let's start planning while I wait for more info. I know nothing about using barrels so I rely on you all that have. I'm imagining we use this as a secondary, yes?

Barrel looks great! Yes, I would primary as usual then rack into the barrel for aging.

When I got my barrel, it had sat empty for a while so I had to re-swell it to seal. Then I knew I wasn't going to use it right away so I filled it with a solution of Sodium Metabisulphate and Citric Acid to make sure nothing undesirable began to grow in there.

Let me know when you are thinking about filling that thing. I'd love to come down if I can.

Ok guys... I see how it is. Setting up this brew day just because I don't live out there anymore. Haha just kidding, looks like if everything works out you will all have a ton of fun!

Sounds like we need to decide on either a style or recipe to brew. How long do we plan on letting the brew age? That could help determine the style as well.
