+++1 on the blowoff tube!  Unless you like black colored walls and ceiling.  Speaking from experience...

The seller has a 30 day guarantee as far as holding liquids goes.  He does also include an "instruction sheet" on how to use/care for the barrel.  I thought about a water/whisky mixture while making sure the staves seal up properly.  Like I said, it will be a work in progress with LOTS of reading before I use it for beer.  I will probably only use it for really BIG beers.  I've got a RIS coming up at some point.

Hey all.  My wife just purchased a barrel from this seller on ebay and was wondering if anyone has purchased from him before.  Barrel price is awesome, shipping price isn't...  Total price of $128 is still less expensive than getting it from thousand oaks or some of the others in the US.  He has a money back guarantee and great feedback (100%).

Barrel aging is about the only aspect of homebrewing I've yet to explore, so this is the perfect Christmas gift.  Guess I'll be reading up on all things oak 8).

Heard this one recently, forgive me if you've already seen it.

What's the difference between a golf ball and a Cadillac Escalade?

Tiger can drive a golf ball 350 yards.  ;)

I'm Bryan, age 41.  I live in Roanoke, VA with my wife and 2 kids.  My wife and I are both elementary school teachers here in the city, which means I have lots of time in the summer to brew :P  I have been brewing for about 6 years, all grain for the last 5.  I brew on a Brew Sculpture from Beer Beer and More Beer.  I have been the treasurer, then VP, then Prez. of our local brew club the Star City Brewers Guild.  I was also BOY 2 years consecutively before becoming Prez and ruining the quality of my beer ;).  Lastly, I spend way too much time on forums like this one reading about all things beer.

I too buy my sacks of grain from our local brewpub (Big Daddy Brewing).  Usually pay around $27-$30 depending on variety and he never charges for shipping.  Nice setup there!  We do have a LHBS, but every time I leave there with just a few things, I feel as though I've been violated  :-[.  Very expensive ($9 for yeast, $3.99 for hops, expensive grain prices).  As far as ordering online, which I do alot of, I've come to really like in Nashville, TN.  Great prices, shipping and customer service.

Ingredients / Re: Briess Cherry Smoked Malt

I made Drew Beechum's Cherrywood Smoked Mild recipe and it came out fantastic.  The recipe calls for a 50/50 combo of Maris Otter and Cherrywood Smoked malt and a tiny bit of other dark malts.
