Welcome to the homeBBBrew board!
Like the BBB, the homeBBBrew board is not a club, just a place to talk about making beer. Is there a swap you would like to see happen? If we can find a few others who have something similar then lets do it!

NO SPECIFIC REASON FOR THIS LINK...
I just really like the work levifunk is doing!

Would anyone like to request a swap?
I could participate in one that deals with sour ales (I have a Flander's style red) or barley wine. But then I don't actually have to have a beer in to plan the thing. Anyone have a beer they would love to contribute to a swap? Steve

Re: Would anyone like to request a swap?
I've got 2 different brett beers; I'll do some sampling this weekend to see if my plambic or berliner weisse is ready yet...I'd be in on funky/sour beers...

Or how about barrel aged beers? I've got several oaked and bourbon barrel type experiments going...

Re: Would anyone like to request a swap?
I haven't actually used a barrel - just oak chips & bourbon barrel char (see the barrel thread for more info).

My homebrew club had an opportunity to get a free bourbon barrel from a brewpub, but we couldn't get enough members to commit to participating to do it (55 gallons is a lot of beer!)...

The bourbon barrel char does a very nice job - I think the charcoal is key to smoothing beers out nicely, in addition to bourbon/oak flavors imparted.

I'll send you one of my bourbon beers in the next swap if you're interested (regardless of the swap style).

Maybe that's it Chet, maybe the next swap should be beer made using some kind of wood product. Would you be in?

I've got several beers that would fit - Bourbon Barrel Baltic porter (one version w/Brett, the other w/o), bourbon barrel IIPA, and oaked IIPA.

I'm in!

Re: Would anyone like to request a swap?
Hi, I have enough homebrew aging that I can participate in just about any style. Count me in, mike

Re: Would anyone like to request a swap?
OK Chet, looks like your suggestion has become reality. 4 is, IMO, the minimum number of participants for a swap ... and we now have 4. I'll leave the message up for another week or two to see if we can gather up a fifth, but the wood aged swap is officially on ...

Excellent - I'm going to the Festival of Barrel Aged beers in Chicago next weekend; it'll be an excellent warmup!

Re: Would anyone like to request a swap?
Not in the office today so I can't update the box on top of the thread page. But we have a 5th! Bill Solomon (he sat with us at the SoB dinner last January) from CT also has a wood-aged Flanders red. So there it is, we have 5. I will get the whole swap thing moving tomorrow...

...get psyched! This is a great theme for a swap!
