The increasing availability of five- to 20-gallon oak barrels gives homebrewers the opportunity to brew both “clean” and sour barrel-aged beers, but best practices on how to use these barrels successfully aren’t so readily available. In this seminar, award-winning homebrewer brothers CJ and James Shamas will detail the steps brewers should take to maximize the benefits of aging beer in small barrels while overcoming inherent challenges. Attendees will come away with strategies for utilizing the evolving character of their barrels to create their own multi-generation barrel program.
