Gin Barrel Aged Beer

Post by localbrewer » July 11th, 2017, 3:11 pm

I am picking up a Whiskey Barrel that had a 2nd use of Cider with Blueberry and Pomegranates followed by a 3rd use of Gin for 4.5 months. At this point I am trying to figure out what type of beer to put into Gin barrel. Suggestions?

Saison would be my recommendation

Deux Rochefort, c'est moins.
Trois Rochefort, faut pas le faire."

That is what I am thinking too, but I want to make sure that the yeast does not cause to much esters causing the gin flavor to be lost. Thinking about adding peaches too, maybe a gallon with cinnamon, maybe.

Add Juniper will give you the Gin flavor you want
