Last post ride beer of my trip.  Packing the bike back up today for flight back tomorrow.  This beer was awesome but very dangerous.

Bought a new 3l white oak barrel and aging it with an affordable quad for 30 days. Gonna dump that beer out, and fill with silver corn whiskey for 90 days. I usually cheap out and use a 2 gallon glass carboy and char some oak spirals when aging a spirit, but this time i went back to a cask.

Nice. I got the aging whiskey in the barrel part, but didn't get that the beer was just for conditioning. 

Now that you've invested in the oak barrel, don't ever let it sit dry. By bro-in-law left one dry for just a few months and it cracked. It's hard to age whiskey when it leaks out in 30 seconds.

Thanks

Had some casks before and i let the last one go for too long and it cracked. I'd already pushed it past its life cycle anyway so not a big loss.

Sometimes I wish there was a heart eye smiley reaction on this forum.

I picked up this trio for a trip to the lake last weekend.

*There were 6 of each plus plenty of Lone Stars. Lucky I made it home with enough to stage the pic.

It was a good trio because they all had distinctly different personalities. My favorite was the Mama Tried. It's the most classic west coast style IPA of the bunch. Can-o-Bliss is a good hazy IPA, but I get a little tired of the hazy stuff sometimes. The Brew Free or Die! IPA Blood Orange was a little orangey for my taste. Super refreshing for a hot day on the lake, but it's no coincidence that I had the most of those left over.
