Whiskey Barrel Aged

Imperial Brown Ale

Barrel Aged Beer

We decided to do the classic homebrew club's rite of passage of brewing a massive beer and aging it in a barrel.

Our group ended up getting a 53 gallon whiskey barrel for the occasion. We ended up brewing the same beer in a single day multiple times until we had enough to fill it. (And some left over for the angels' share) We had 10 people commit to the event and split the costs.
