In for five gallons / subscribed.

'My connection has it at some dudes house' This sounds so druggy! I love it.

I'm thinking we need to make something that will sit in there for a long time and soak up that PN vibe. So, something that needs aging, but will let the Pinot shine through.

For some reason I thinking wheat, but not sure how that will age. Anything super hoppy will mask the Pinot. Lightly hopped Pale Ale or Amber? Red?

I think a nice amber would work well.

I found a sweet whisky barrel on the local craigslist for $40 (59 gallons apparently). The previous owner said he used it for beer I told the guy that if it was still available after August 1st I might be interested (that was before I knew how big it was. Still might pick it up anyway.)

Yea Sea, that's where we had the last one. You're welcome to come on up! McKBrew and Brewtopia came to the last one and it was quite a drive for them. Fun was had by all.

I'd really love to, but it's probably not doable for me right now.

Sounds like fun, but I couldn't contribute much, and it's a hell of a drive!

I'm sure that the barrel will sit in PDX since that's where KB's place is.
