Used Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Staves – $3.99

Sliced Bourbon Barrel Staves 2 ct.

Used Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Staves via Adventures in Homebrewing.

Used whiskey barrels are popular… really popular.  5 and 10 gallon barrels usually sell out quickly when they become available.  They are also typically relatively expensive.  These are a great way to get some of the barrel experience without the cost and space required for a barrel.

from AIH…”These sliced staves do vary in size. They are anywhere from 1/2”- 1″ wide, 1/8″-1/4″ thick and 8-13″ in length. Please keep this in mind when purchasing. Many commercial chips have allowed moisture (bourbon) to dry up. This is not the case with these sliced staves. These staves have been processed from authentic Kentucky bourbon barrels.”

As of this posting, these are available for $3.99.  Check the product page for up to the minute price and availability.

Juno Choi’s Patagonia IPA Recipe + Patagonia Malts at Great Fermentations

Juno Choi BSG

Juno Choi With a PIle of Hops

One of the homebrews that stood out to me while attending the 2014 National Homebrewer’s Conference in Grand Rapids, Michigan was an IPA that was served by Brewer’s Supply Group (BSG) at their booth at the Conference. It was… delicious.  Roasty, great hop character and easy to drink.  I swung by for two samples and shortly returned… for a third and it was gone.  After the conference, I got a hold of BSG to ask about the beer.  I learned that it was formulated and brewed by Juno Choi.  Juno kindly shared the recipe with me and I’d like to share it with you.  Thank you Juno!

The recipe features 100% Patagonia Malts from Chile.  Those were new to me and I think relatively new to the homebrew market here in the US, because… I had a very difficult time sourcing the grain for this recipe.  After looking around a bit, I contacted Bryan at Great Fermentations.  They already carried Patagonia, just not not all three varieties that this recipe calls for.  Bryan kindly sourced the remaining grains and has stocked them at Great Fermentations.  Thank you Bryan!
