The last barrel has been sold, We will everyone know when there are more.

Those who have barrels, what do you think about a barrel only competition (I really just want to drink all the great beers coming from these barrels)?

Anyone have any experience using sorgum whiskey barrels? Never been exposed to it, so I'm uncertain of the flavor profiles.

A Quote from the Stiller:

How big are they, and how many times can you re-use them? Never did a barrel beer but would like to try one.

5 gallons, you can reuse them a few times to impart the barrel flavor. Then you can use them for wild beers once the barrel is "neutral"

think of the barrel like steeping tea...the first time it doesnt need to be in there long, then each time there after you have to leave it in there longer to get the same effect. eventually the barrel flavor is gone and you can you it for wild beers as described. With this much surface area to beer ratio, my guess is youll be able to use it more than a few times as long as you keep the barrel clean (rinse and refill with spirits when not in use).

I put a English Brown in one of your rum barrels for 12 days. WOW did it pick up that flavor!! BTW what brand rum was in the barrel? Planning on putting a Barley Wine in there next!!!

So, this is my sole remaining concern at this point. I've got a beer that can go into it immediately after arriving and being rinsed out, but will never brew so much that I'll keep it full 100% of the time.

I don't want to do sulfur, just ask Gordon Strong about that. Does that mean that I'd need to buy 5 gallons of liquor to store in it when not in use for beer? I guess that I could rack it out and into a carboy when I'm going to age beer, but won't the liquor continue to extract the barrel flavor?

I wouldn't want to use a cheap liquor, because that would end up in my beer, whcih means I'd need 5 gallons of good stuff. That ain't cheap!
