So it looks like I may be getting my hands on a Pinot Noir barrel. I'll need a little help getting that thing full...any interest in folks brewing up some batches and blending them in the barrel?




Confirmed Brewers:
Kilted Brewer: 25 gallons
EvilTOJ: 15 gallons (5 gallons not yet added to barrel)
explosivebeer: 10 gallons
McKBrew: 5 gallons
blacklab: 5 gallons


Total: 50 gallons



Reason: Updated brewing amounts

I would be interested. If it's a 55 gallon barrel, this may give me a good excuse to get a cooler larger than the 7.5 gallon one I have now so I can make 10 gallon batches.

I don't yet. I just got word yesterday that my connection was able to get the barrel. Still need to check it out and make sure it's usable so don't go rushing out just yet. Anyone have anything they've been eager to try?

I'd definitely be up for that. It all Depends on where I'm at with the brewery. Pinot barrel will be great. Sounds like we need at least 5-6 people to participate in order to fill that thing.

I've been considering getting a larger cooler anyways to make the 999 barleywine, and this just seals the deal fo sho. Once plans are crystalized a bit more then I'll start doing some shopping around.

I would like to attend. Sorry I have been MIA lately, work has been handing me my A$$ lately and well summers are always busy it seems.

When, where, and what do we have in mind?

I'm still waiting to get the barrel. I'm told the person has it at their house, but doesn't know how to get it to me or their work so I can go pick it up. I'll keep you posted.
