Derivitive question:

If you leave a Flanders Red (such as this 14 SRM) on the yeast (skip the secondary racking) does it by style definition become a Flanders Brown? Will it become more sour and funky as there is more food (autolyzed yeast) for the bacteria to consume?

You suggest me to fill the two carboy to the top and put the last 0,75 gal in a 1gal bottle or to fill the barrel and after put the last 7, 5 gal in the carboy leaving some head space?
I would fill the barrel first and transfer the remaining amount to the carboys. After racking, you'll likely get a little kick of activity that will throw some CO2 so a small amount of headspace in the carboys should be ok.

I don't know that it would necessarily be 'more' sour/funky. But all things being equal, I'm sure that a Flanders Red left on the cake will have a 'different' sour/funky character than one transferred off the yeast. Sounds like a good side-by-side experiment .

Generally though, a Flanders Brown is sweeter, fuller and less sour than a Red.

But it is typical of a Flander's Red or a Brown to have up to 40% wheat in the recipe? Or is that a style all of it's own?

Questions are based on digesting Wild Brews data and comparing it to Oldsock's in American Sour Beers... WTF is it that I am brewing is my real question, LOL...

Seems high to be "to style" but this category of beers is changing significantly fastand is extremely open to exploration. The standars are OLD, we need this influx of fresh ideas. Just go with it, do not worry about "styles" unless you're trying to compete or be traditional
