Free barrels from Spiteful

Spiteful just emptied out their GFY Stout and Pigeon Porter barrels. They have three 55gal and two 30gal bourbon barrels that they are willing to give to us for free. We just have to go pick them up.

Please let me know ASAP if anyone wants any. They are giving us first dibs before they offer them to someone else.

I dont think that we have

I dont think that we have been having great beers come out of 3rd use barrels.  But if anyone has any ideas to use these for tables etc then we can use them.

Eric - I can pick them up if the club wants them.  If not, I would take one of the larger ones for myself if that is possible.  I want to use one to make some stuff, not beer though.

If the 30G barrels are going

If the 30G barrels are going to be used and placed on the top shelf (where there is room right now) that shelf needs to be reinforced / rebuilt with cross members. The shelf is already bowing in the middle and the plywood is under the metal lip in the center.

Hunter - 30gal

Hunter - 30gal
Rich - 55gal

Down to just two 55gal barrels now.

Rich, when can you pick them up? The sooner, the better as Spiteful has pretty limited space.

I'd be interested in doing a barrel aged sour, if others wanted to help brew it.

I'm down for getting in on the sour as well.

As for the 30 gal, I sitll would like to use that barrel for an imperial stout or barley wine. Of course, it would be fun to collaborate with a few folks on it as well.

We can use an extra barrel as a table for our parties.  We lost one to the Tap Project and the other is falling apart.

I should add that the barrels

I should add that the barrels acted as weights to tent city as well...anyone that was around for setting up for Cerveza de Mayo knows that they prevented the city from being blown away several times.

Id say we take them for decoration/weights/tables but prob want to avoid using them for any clean beer. I don't have the capacity to head up a sour project at the moment.

Sounds good Rich... I just texted them to see how late they will be there tonight. Will get back to you as soon as I hear back.

Josh, I'll join your sour project if there's still room for another person.

Rich,

Rich,

Unfortunately they are leaving around 5:30 today... any chance you can pick them up any other day this week?

Three 55gal might be too much

Three 55gal might be too much to fit in Rich's truck at one time. He can pick up two of the 55gal and the 30 gal at once. He will be picking them up on Wednesday around 6pm. If anyone has a vehicle that can fit a barrel so that Rich doesn't have to do multiple trips that would be great.

Hi all.  I will be brewing

Hi all.  I will be brewing Wednesday and can help load the barrels into the club.  The club having the barrels is always the priority, but if we have an extra barrel, I would love to have it for home/non brew related use.

Hunyun33 - sounds like these barrels might not be best, but I'm down for a barrel project.  I've never barreled anything before, so I wouldn't be a great lead on the project, unfortunately

Josh - I'd love to brew for the sour barrel project you mentioned to Nancy, if there's room!

Thanks,

John

Barrels are at the BH. I am

Barrels are at the BH. I am no expert, but they smell really good and have been kept sealed since being emptied and cleaned, so I am pretty sure they could be used for beer if someone wanted to.

Hey Tim,

Hey Tim,

I don't think anyone has claimed all the 55gal barrels yet, so if you want one to brew a sour it's yours. I'll be down to join you on this project as well...

What were you thinking, Tim?

What were you thinking, Tim? How patient are you? What about a Flanders red? Would give us plenty of time to brew a younger beer to blend with, too.

I am not sure how many 30

I am not sure how many 30 gallon barrels are at the brew house, but I was planning on doing a Flanders red with the barrel from Spiteful. I am definitely looking for collaborators of anyone is interested.

We will have to review the

We will have to review the space that all of these barrels will take up before everyone starts to fill etc..  Why dont we have a meeting with the people interested in starting barrels.  Review what would be best for each, and develop a plan.

Posibly after NHC next week?

I'm down to do a flanders, and also interested in seeing what's possible within 6-12 months.  Maybe something more complex with some lingering chocolate and roast malt flavors?  Something like Tart of Darkness with a more mellow acidity?  Or Boxer's Revenge.  Just some ideas of the directions we could go.
