As a follow up to “Barrel Aging for Homebrewers,” Neil Fisher has shared the recipes for some of the base beers that he uses for barrel aging. The recipe for “Reclamation Red” has undergone several different iterations, but it started out as an attempt to brew a barrel-aged version of Stone’s Arrogant Bastard. The recipe, modified for significantly lower IBUs, has become his house Burgundy Sour recipe and is a great backdrop for aging with a wide variety of fruits. Reclamation Red took two medals at the 2014 Big Beers Festival homebrew competition in Vail, Colorado. The nectarine version took Silver in the Sour Category as a Flanders Red entry, and the blackberry version took Bronze in the Belgian Specialty category.
