That would be brilliant

Just thought I would give a update. The barrel is still actively sending foam through the blowoff tube at day 2 of active fermentation. The carboy still has a nice krausen and appears to be dropping a bit.

Krausen is finally going down and the carboy is switched to a airlock. Every time I put the airlock on the barrel it gets filled with yeast and kraus-foam so it needs to mellow out more.

Here's some new photos, about a week after they were pitched things have finally slowed down. They actually smell really good for a young brew slightly funky.

Well how about a update.

The beer is currently at 1.012 and is tasty at a young age , has a little funk to the taste with the aroma of a gueze but faint.

Both the barrel and carboy have started to form a light , whitish pellicle.

A long journey still ahead but a enjoyable one at that

This makes me wish I had a barrel. I still need to brew six more gallons so I can fill a fifteen gallon bourbon barrel with my imperial flanders red.
