Our tasting notes discussion includes tips and techniques on barrel-conditioning (barrel-aging) and maintenance, last-minute yeast starters, and using the Wyeast Ringwood Ale yeast strain.

    Im not going to lie, I want a Bryon Adams t-shirt. Please get some of those made up. As far as what to brew next I think you should try something new. Instead of going dark and heavy try something like a hopped up Pale Ale, more specifically a high gravity pale ale, and then dry hop into the barrel. Maybe let it sit for a day or two since its pulling off that much flavor. Don’t want to over power the hops all that much. What do you think about that? I need some Bryon Adams on my chest.
