The active primaries you see are individual shares of Flanders Brown that are replacing the 60 gallons of Cherry Lambic in the wine barrel. Sniff... tear..

Bobby,
You're a drummer? I mean, I respected you before for your brewing prowess, but now I'm speechless.... In a good way! Rock on!

Only 30 times more than me. That is damn sexy though. And one HUGE barrel!

Wow, I want to be like you when I grow up!

Dayum!

How long do you keep the brews in the barrel? I assume because it is so big (relative to the little 20L barrels Sacc is getting) that the contact time needs to be longer than it will for these mini-barrels. Do you just keep tasting until it's right?

Bobby:

Are you done brewing for the year? I mean, you're pushing your 200 gallon limit really hard. Lucky for you the meter gets reset on January 1. :)

I wish you were my neighbor... You getting tired of New Jersey?

I'm guessing you missed the fact that those carboys are all for individual shares of a larger brew club project?
