If you want to do this Sunday

If you want to do this Sunday evening instead, or pretty much any evening, I am available.  Would hate for you to have to do it by yourself.

All,

All,

so we got this into the barrel today.  The only hickup was that we ended up wayyy short on volume.  We ended up blending in an entire batch of a similar stout that i had for the extract compitition / stout night.  Were even still about 1/2" from the top.  So ill make another batch for stout night and use a little for future top off. 

We also discussed merting up in about a month for a first sample and to discuss the next batch to go in ill set the date closer to then.

Just out of curiosity, as I

Just out of curiosity, as I know nothing about barrels, how high are you supposed to be?  All the way to the top?  Or do you leave some space typically?

Lucas,

Lucas,

im pretty sure its supposed to be all the way up to the top.  But right now with the bung all the way pressed down it dips into the level of the beer.  I imagine it like a bottle filled with minimum head space, plus i flushed out the little bit with co2 also.

Everyone,

Everyone,

I was at the brewhouse yesterday and pulled a sample off the barrel.  It tastes great already.  It definatly only needs another month or 2.  

I think that we should start discussing now about what we should but in it next.  And if everyone still wants in for round 2.  

I realy want to do a scoth ale recipe then add raspberrys after a few months if anyone wants to second this or has something else they want to do let us know.

We will also have room for 2 new people do if anyone else wants in your welcome.

Im thinking in the barrel for the last month once we think its almost ready.

It should take alot longer this time around so i dont think the raspberry needs to be in that long.

We could use a bunch of frozen raspberry to try and avoid any sour bugs getting in (for now).  After that it should have a nice base flavor in the barrel for a great sour oud bruin etc. but thats up for debate later

Josh - What do you think

Josh - What do you think about filling up the barrel initially and aging to full taste, taking half of it off and then re-topping it off with fresh batches and the rasberries.  I wouldn't mind trying it both ways and I think once you add the rasberries, it's a rasberry barrel from then on.  Also, it might shorten the amount of time the rasberries need to be in.  Just a thought, I'm in either way.

Rich,

Rich,

I imagine when we put in the raspberries we would have to pull out some liquid anyway due to the volume we put into.  

Maby we could pull out the volume of the raspberries plus 1 more batch bottle that and distribute equally to the maple bourbon barrel A team for comparison.  

Then put in the volume of new batchs to top off then split that up equally when done?

 

 

Also a few people have been asking how much I was owed for the original cost of the barrel.  I've tossed around the numbers and it was $200.00 for the barrel shipped.  Split between the 6 original batchs and 7 batchs round 2 @ $15.00 per batch it about equals out.  Let me know if everyone agrees this is fair.  If we end up doing a group grain buy for this batch ill buy all the grain and split up that cost add in the barrel cost and everyone pays then if not Ill email everyone their totals and my quickpay address or we can set up another way to pay.

Sounds fair to me.  I would volunteer to brew a second batch if I could take one(or a partial) out before the berries go in.

Rich,

Rich,

How about you brew the extra batch for when we put the berries in.  Then when they go in since im not sure of the volume well be putting it yet we can talk about that later.  We pull out 2 batchs worth then put the berries in then use 1 of the batchs to top it back up maby 1/2 a batch.  Then we split the remainder 1/2 for you 1/2 split among all of us.

Im still researching a recipe but anyone have any good names we can use for when I start the new thread for this one? heres a few Im thinking of

-Kilt Lifter

-Wee Wee all that way home

-Kilty Pleasure

If I am the only one who wants to try it both ways, then no need to complicate things on my account. I'll brew whatever batches you need me to, I am cool either way. We should just get everyone together the next time we try the stout and talk it over with a few beers. FREEEEDOM!!!

Just don't use kilt lifter!  It's already used by a commercial brewer!  Maybe you could call it empty netters kilt lifter to avoid legal disputes?

Jeff,

Jeff,

No that is perfect I got a recipe that I brewed last weekend that turned out nice.  I was going to post it up to a new thread soon.  We tried the barrel again this past weekend also and its picked up alot of burbon charachter already, about another month and it should be perfect.

Just keep on the look out for the recipe soon and if everyone else can plan on brewing it in the next 2 weeks or so we should be good to take the current batch out around Feb 8th or so.
