Pitched ECY 20 into 11G oak barrel, lambic-style. Blew off in 24 hours. It's calmed down now. Kept the extra wort from the 12 gallon batch that didn't fit, just filled the barrel back up to the top now.

That's just sexy. Where did you find an oak barrel that size?

Got it from FarmhouseBrewingSupply. Vendor is on the used barrel thread. About a year old. I put three beers through it, RIS, Strong Scotch, and a Robust porter. Steam cleaned and hot water was and it smelled great.

I can't believe how much time I spend sniffing that bung hole.... :-)

I had the Flemish blend fail to start regular fermentation, I actually had a little bit of a pellicle after 6 days without any activity. Pitched some S05 and dregs from a Cantillon and it took off within a day.

Have a couple vials of 20 in the fridge, I assume the sacch in there will take off just fine given info from this thread.
