But there's also a bite to it that doesn't feels a little off. I think that's what is wanting me to blend this with something. Or maybe there's a battle between the roasted malts and the bugs? Jury is still out, but I am enjoying this one better than the first batch.
It sounds very interesting. I'm definitely looking forward to trying it.

I'm brand new to brewing, so I don't think I'm ready for this yet. Not to hijack the thread, but I was wondering if there were any local homebrew clubs/groups around that anyone is a member of that would be willing to have a new brewer join the ranks. I've only done 3 batches of extract brew so far, but I'm hooked. I'm interested in going to the next step with all-grain brewing, but want to watch someone else do it a time or two before buying all the equipment and attempting myself. Plus, it would be nice to meet some fellow homebrewers. I'm in Hillsboro, OR. Shoot me a PM if you know can help me out. Sorry to be .

Ah crap. Almost forgot about this in the hussle and bustle of the move. I'm moving in 10 days - wont have time to run out there for more than a couple minutes even if pulling the beer early was a possibility. Ideas? I should be back in Oregon to visit within a year but who knows...

Should I drop off a bottle or a keg or a carboy or? I'll be in the general area, I'll just have to do a crapload of stuff. Moving on short notice sucks but gotta do what ya gotta do.

I am. Leaving on Monday. Should be in the PDX area this weekend but might not be depending on packing, etc. Not sure the best way to go about this...

Let's try and get a group vote here. Curtis, I believe you did 5 gallons. Anyone have any issue with pulling 5 gallons out of the barrel now? Maybe we move up the emptying party to the next few weeks?

I personally have no issue with pulling 5 gallons now.

Any objections fellas? Yeah, 5 gallons.

Brian, I'm not sure if I will personally be up there or if it'll be just my wife. Would it be kosher to send her there with a keg and would you be willing to fill it with the appropriate amount of goods? Saturday will be a no go, Sunday afternoon work for ya?

Sunday should work. I'll probably just be home working on the new Chicken run.

Alright guys. Let's nail down a date to empty the barrel. Oct. is a busy month for me and I'm pretty much limited to October 23rd at this point. Does that work for everyone?

I haven't been on the forums for a few weeks due to a busy stretch.

Curtis, I wish you luck on your trip to Texas.

Brian, let me know when you want to empty the barrel and what you want to do with it after that. I'm heading down this weekend for a quick trip and the weekend of the 22nd to head to the coast. I probably won't be back until the Holiday Ale Festival in early December. Or if you want to let it sit awhile longer, I'm fine with that too. No rush.
