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,...

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.

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:

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...

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...

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...

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!

Does it taste horrible? Has this happened to other bottles from that batch? Have they experienced any temp fluctuations recently (I assume not, given winter temps these days)? If it doesn't taste...
