Bourbon Barrel

We have a space that has opened up on our Oppidan bourbon barrel project. This is a thirty gallon barrel, with six brewers.  We have an imperial stout in it now and will be emptying it and refilling it in the first half of February. 

The next beer for the barrel project will be an arctic ale - Patty, Melissa, Hugh and I brewed one of these for the predecessor of the current Oppidan bourbon barrel and it was delicious.  An Arctic Ale is an historical beer, a recreation of the beer British arctic explores like Shaklelton brought with them on their expeditions.  Its a big imperial Burton ale, sort of like a current day English Barleywine.  

We have one brewer slot open for this project - you would need to be able to commit to brewing for this project by the end of January.  Respond here if you're interested.  First preference to those who aren't already in a current barrel project, but even if you are, go ahead and respond if you're interested.
