I just purchased a brandy barrel. Iím in the talks for purchasing a rum barrel. I figured since itís free beer week... why not have a little fun. This is a contest for homebrew. Iím looking for the best beer idea to go in the brandy barrel. My plan is to first age a ícleaní beer (non-sour) then make it a sour barrel.

So, include 2 suggestions: 1 clean beer, 1 sour beer. Be creative, Iím looking for wild ideas here. There is a possibility of 2 winners here, 1 clean, 1 sour winner. Or one person could win both categories.
Winner(s) will receive a handful of large format bottles of the homebrew and a handful of locals.

Cheers!

MatSciGuy 907:
Clean: Imperial sweet stout with sour cherries
Sour: Lambic grist (turbid mash if youíre up for the effort) with Cabernet grapes and/or blackberries.

Iím thinking the sour will soak up some color from the imperial stout to make it slightly darker to begin with, plus the addition of fruit to add color and flavor.
