What are you thoughts, What do you have going? How long?

What are the beer styles that lend themselves to this? Hints or tricks for this type of brewing and bottling.

I'm thinking of doing a solera beer instead of a doing yearly BW

Pretty interesting method. Probably been around for a long time. I have never tried it. A barley wine sounds like a good candidate for trying this. It reminds me of Freindship bread that the Amish have employed for years.

Here's a link on basic brewing.

Basically it's a blending process that they used in Spain with brandy that has evolved into beer and wine.

Jeff Renner wrote a story on this in Zymurgy some time ago.  It is used for Sherry, where the old Sherry left in the barrel "teaches" the new Sherry.  Jeff had a corny he would refill using this methed.

Since then the club has done a project with a Bourbon Barrel.  Will be 4 years old in April.   If you put some in, you can take some out latter.  The beer is always changing, as it ages, and then as new is added.
