Posted in thread: Possible to prep a Barrel (prev. Stout-filled) for a Golden Sour? on 10-04-2016 at 12:00 PM
It really depends on the barrel. I have a balcones barrel that was only a medium char and I
would have no reservations at all about putting a golden in there. On the other hand I have a

Posted in thread: Brewing a Stout to age in a whiskey barrel, need some advice on 09-28-2016 at 10:14 PM
Barrel aging tends to round out a lot of the harsh corners of a beer so my personal opinion is

Posted in thread: Blending Highly Acidic Sour Beers on 02-24-2016 at 12:36 PM
Having VERY sour beer is a great blending tool, as long as it's not overly acetic (and even
then, in small quantities, it's useful).In general, I think of the acid beer is the blender,
and another, mo...
