Lads,
The Barrel porter is tasting good and has all the oak it's going to get so it's time to think about the next brew.  As discussed before, it's time to put a bit of Brett into the barrel rather than waiting for it to do something mad on it's own,  Good meet last night, and I think we were all agreed on the strain of Brett to use (although I admit to being biased!).  We also have the receipe previously agreed, unless there's any objections  - the 1914 Courage Russian Imperial Stout recipe below that Andrew gave us.

So who's interested and when would suit?  I know we originally said we'd take the Porter out in time for Christmas but I still have plenty of Barleywine so not in a mad rush.  How does brewing over the Christmas period sound?
