I am the owner and head brewer of Barreled Souls Brewing Company in Maine. We ferment 100% of our beers in oak barrels using a Burton Union system and open next week, AMA!
My short bio: I've been brewing for 12 years and recently moved back to Maine from Texas where I'd been working on helicopters as an engineer for the government. I'm opening Barreled Souls with a friend I've know since 4th grade and this has been both of our dream for many years. We're using a unique fermentation method that as far as I know will make us the only brewery in the world making beer this way. We're also building a large tasting room and barrel aging almost half of all the beer we make. Our goal is to bring something unique to the craft beer scene while doing what we love. Thanks for participating!
Shameless Self Plug: We're doing a Kickstarter Campaign http://kck.st/1lz6nl9 with lots of great rewards! Please help us out! Thanks!
It's 12:47 EST. I've got to go make some beer, but I'll be back in a few hours to answer more of the questions already asked. I've been amazed by not only the number of questions, but the quality and obvious knowledge all of you have. Thanks so much and check back tonight, I'll try to get to most of the questions.
