Not at all. I am thinking of a solera style like http://www.themadfermentationist.com...er-barrel.html
I would prefer to have everyone add fruit on their own after barrel aging. I have read a few reports of these types of projects and that's how they worked. You can come after the bulk of aging is done and transfer out your part of the beer into kegs or carboys and take them home to add whatever fruit you want. At that point you'd have the option of bringing over more wort to refill the barrel.
Next step is recipe. Then schedule a combination date to put it into the barrel. I think we should plan to combine 1 month after pitching. Then we will schedule a group buy perhaps, meeting at Brew Brothers in Hillsboro.
I would like to inoculate the barrel with some bugs before hand too. Would like to get a hold of some East Coast Yeast bugs but haven't been able to. Anyone have them?
