Hi Josh - I had the good

Hi Josh - I had the good fortune to try a sample of the Berry Darling you guys made last year and it kicked ass! I would be interested in joining the barrel project in this round if there is space. I'm pretty new to Chaos so if there's a few people that have been on the waiting list then it is all theirs. Don't want to step on anyone's toes!!

Coconut can always be added

Coconut can always be added after the barrel, so no biggie if it's not part of the main project.

Josh, I'd love to take you up on that TOP offer, if you don't mind having a less-than-stellar brewing partner: my back is still a bit messed up so I can't do as much lifting as usual.
