Homebrew clubs are where its at. My club has no less than six barrels full and we're working on a 7th. We have:

Raspberry Cider
Laird's Applejack barrel cider
New England Cider
2 x Basswood meads
Flanders Red Sour - soon to be 2 x Cherry Lambic (Kriek).

MMmmmm 400 gallons of barrel product.

Nice work PseudoChef. I've got a Jack Daniels barrel myself and have been tweaking imperial stout recipes to find the right one to put in it. I like the Belgian Dark Strong idea too. What base recipe did you guys use? And would you be interested in working out a trade? I'm very curious how that turns out.

That's Awesome!!! Nice work chef! How many more times will you be able to use that barrel? Maybe look to see if next time there is a spike in the gravity after a second use? Either way you're gonna have to make MORE beer! Cheers!

Cannot begin to express my jealousy...I would love to get this going with a few of my friends. Same base beer too...Belgian Dark Strong. Of course, if I had a second barrel, I would fill it with Orfy's Hobgoblin Clone. And if I had a third one, I would fill it with the 888 RIS...Man I need a brew room. And some whiskey barrels. And more friends.

You and I have astonishingly similar tastes.

Very cool. That sounds like a great project to do with friends. Are you planning on using the barrell again or is it "done"?

I will comment on the hydrometer reading. In barrels you can't get an accurate reading via hydrometer because the barrel adds an undetermined amount of alcohol which was *not* sugar in the wort of your beer. At least that's what the brewmaster at Lexington Brewing Co. told us whan I asked this specific question. They age in Bourbon barrels using each one once, and the ABV usually goes from 5% before aging to 7% after. Of course you need a refractometer to test this.

Odds are the exact amount is not important to homebrewers anyway.
