    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...

    Seriously thinking I might need to rent a cherry picker. Better yet, perhaps I find some
    hipster mechanic who will trade me his cherry picker for a few cases of PBR? :ban:

    Soooo, my brew buddy and I got the bright idea of filling up a couple of 60gal wine barrels
    with beer. It tastes fantastic, but it's now at the point where we need to get them off the oak
    and we didn'...

    Also amazed this hasn't sold yet ...For any of you on the fence, realize you can expand this
    thing to fit up to 7 corny kegs by building a wood collar out of 2"x10"(12"?) to fit 3 more
    kegs on the com...

  • Posted in thread: Looking for something to put into new white oak barrels on 08-30-2011 at 01:31 AM
    How big are your barrels? Just a heads up that if you have the 60gal barrels and intend to fill
    them in new oak, the oak will take on much faster than you expect. I have a 60gal 3yr used
    (pinot noir) ...

    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
    revived ...

  • Posted in thread: Attempting Saison...suggestions? on 08-04-2011 at 02:32 AM
    Sounds tasty! I have only brewed and consumed one 10gal batch (other is in primary), but I
    believe it's all about the yeast. I suggest doing a yeast starter to get an idea of the crazy
    fruit notes in ...

    For the regulator, I'd go with a dual regulator more for serving at two different carb levels.
    Serving each beer at the same pressure doesn't always work out ... some will foam like nuts
    while others ...

    Congrats! AG can be a royal PITA sometimes, but getting within ballpark of OG and having a good
    time, as it sounds like you did, makes for a great brew day. Start planning your next one!
