Pete Skold has spearheaded a great endeavor for the club.  He organized the purchase as well as offered to house two 35 gallon whiskey barrels from Koval Distillery.

We brewed an Imperial Stout and an English Barleywine to fill the barrels.  We brewed together as a group then took a couple fermenters home each.  With so many carboys/buckets fermenting in different places, there were plenty of chances for infections or other off-flavors.  Impressively, all the batches turned out well which left us with extra beer rather than our fear of not being able to fill the barrels.
