Just following up in case anyone else decides to do this, as I cleared the barrel out
yesterday. I basically did what a few of you suggested and used a bung with 2 holes and
pressurised the barrel, tu...

Not a bad idea with the micro brewery hookup. There's a place within 10 minutes from my house
that should have a barrel-aging program. Will give them a call today.I guess even if a racking
cane only g...

Hey there. Just curious to see if you tried your recipe and how it turned out? This was a group
favorite from my trip on Sep'10 and now that we just got it distributed on the west coast, I've

Sounds tasty! I have only brewed and consumed one 10gal batch (other is in primary), but I

fruit notes in ...
