The bourbon barrels from http://www.woodinvillewhiskeyco.com/barrels/ seem like a nice choice. Anyone try anything with them yet?
I had a taste of the RIS when I pulled it out of the barrel, it was very nice but might need a little time to smooth back out.  I haven't tasted it chilled/carbed yet (although it was at 50F).

What temp are you storing the beer in the barrel? 50F?

In that range, yes, plus or minus a couple of degrees.  That was my garage temp for the 3 days it was in there.

Well I called Woodinville and they had me convinced that their bourbon barrel was the best choice for me. They had four remaining. So if anyone wants one they better act quick. Thanks for everyone's input. Looks like I'll be brewing Denny's VBIP.

Seems like there should be some of that well loved polka music playing in the back ground while you read this thread.
