Anyone want to start barrel-aging? I so wish I had space for this...

Yeah, I'm trying my first sour this week, though it will be a sour mash, followed with a regular fermentation. Not ready to step up to the bugs yet (not sure I have the patience).

Fencdar I think we talked at the hanami about barrels? I have a little rum barrel that might hold 3/4 liters but it is dried and needs to be rinsed out and reconditioned. Someone, maybe you - suggested throwing wine in it for a while. I will probably do that, buy table wine and fill it up and let the wine take a beating. I don't expect to get much flavors from the wood itself, but in the long run I hope that I can make use of it for sours.

Nope that was totally not me. That sounds like a cool project, though. I've got a feeler out that emails me with homebrewing-related stuff on Rakuten... there are a LOT of old wine barrels on there, if anyone is interested.

can you still use old wine barrels? I thought they had to be somewhat new to use

Do any of the following (see below) sound like something you might be interested in?

If yes, please contact me or surface here so we can move forward.

Thanks

Hey Blue Frog, where are you in Nagano? I've got a cabin in Nojiri. I'm up there all the time. Maybe we can hookup sometime.

Nagano shi.

(So, like the "Big Apple"... which, curiously, you can see if you visit here, it's Nagano, Nagano.)

I can't place you exactly... I get different "nojiri's" when I search
but either 15 miles or 3hours away... either way I do think we could work it out!

Feel free to PM me.
I have trouble logging on to homebrewtalk so we need to switch over to email asap.

I looked at your posts and saw something about a shop and sawdust... whats that about?


BF
