We could potentially all brew right before putting the batches in the barrel rather than ferment it out first. If sanitation is a concern, a campden tablet will knock out any bacteria in there to make sure no stray bugs get a head start on the Roselare bugs. Another option is to brew with the no chill method into the storage cubes and bring the wort to dump in the barrel.

Or we could just ferment out as planned. What do you guys think?
I have a 6 gallon no-chill cube I've been using, this would work for me.

Another option is to have a group brewing session at my place and just dump into the barrel right away. We are getting into that time of year when weekends are pretty busy though so not totally sure if that would work out or not. But it's a thought.

I'm apt to think a mix of preferemented and bug only fermented batches would do well. But I could be totally off base there. But if we do that we should probably have a good balance.

Let's also nail down a date so I can be sure I'm home and available.

Here is the list I have right now. We are actually possibly over 55 gallons so let's get some firm commitments. I'm assuming the recipe given is ok for everyone?

Kilted Brewer: 15
Explosive: 15
Chester: 10
gplutt: 5
curtis97322: 5
EvilTOJ: 10

That's a total of 60 with Evil, no McKBrew

I'd be up for coming down for a group brew, too. I have the 12th-15th off. I guess I'm pretty open to whatever you guys wanna do.

Personally, I'm not a fan of packing up my brewing gear and brewing elsewhere. Plus I'm usually pretty busy in Portland when I come down so I'd rather brew up here and make the most of my time down there.

I could drop my beer off and hang out for a couple hours while you guys are doing a group brew though.

Don't count me in yet. Not sure if I'll be able to particpate this time around or not.

I'm not totally a fan of playing host for such a venture either...so why don't we just scratch that off the list.

Let's say a barrel fill date of December 5th (first Saturday of December). I will brew up my 15 gallons possibly this weekend or next at the latest and dump straight into the barrel.

I will let you all decide if you want to ferment out a little bit before dumping or just let the bugs do the entire job since you will be the ones that have to figure out the logistics of getting the wort to my place on the 5th.

Why don't we put me down for 5. Sounds like that'd put us right at capacity. If commitments change I can still brew up to 10.

Timeline on dropping off the wort fairly flexible? I'd imagine we'll be dropping the evil demon spawn off with the mother in law one of the next couple weekends. I'd prefer to drop off the wort while I'm up there anyways. I'll probably brew up the batch the sunday we pick her up and drop the wort off that day. Let the bugs chew on all of it.

I'll brew mine next week and get it down there sometime before the 5th of December.

Edit: Any yeast preference? If not, I'll just go with 1084.

My opinion on yeast would be to use something clean and neutral. Like a US-05 or a 1056. We don't want anything that's going to compete flavor wise with the bugs.

1056 it is. I'll do this next weekend.
