Dropped off my 8 gallons yesterday since I'm heading out of town today.
Nice to meet theveganbrewer and look forward to a meetup so I can actually meet everyone else.
He let me know that Racoon Lodge is very close to his place so that could be a good destination to gather and enjoy some sours.
Maybe September after the summer rush is over?

Hey Vegan, I can't make the dump on Saturday, unless after 7 pm works. I'm leading a tour. Would there be a time today or Sunday that would work, or I could just drop it off? Would you pm me your address please?

Was nice to meet you all today, I am pretty excited to see how this turns out. Had the opportunity to taste some really great beers today too, thanks for bringing them over.

Thanks for having us. I don't get to hang out with other homebrewers very often, so this was pretty cool. Looking forward to seeing how this project turns out!

Edit: Just watched the video. That airlock activity is insane. I'd like to know how long that goes on before it dies down.

Ok I'll keep you posted. It's even faster now actually. Who knows what the hell is going on in there, but it's awesome.

What's in the barrel:

ECY01 Bug Farm
Wyeast Roselare
Jolly Pumpkin La Roja dregs
Green Flash Rayon Vert dregs
Logsdon Saison Bretta dregs
Cascade The Vine dregs
Russian River Temptation
The Bruery Saison de Lent dregs
Cantillon Brett C3

I believe we were at 7.5 brix after everything was pitched--->Thanks Jhalloran. That's partially fermented so the brix is going to be off, but we're right in there where we want to be. There is some sacc still working on the beer and we should have it down to 1.010 soon.

Awesome! Pitched on my mother's birthday! I'll drop my carboy off in a few hour. Been working most of yesterday. I lead a tour, my first lead tour! It was a blast! After Brewvana I worked a wedding at Adriana Ballroom. I'm pretty beat. Just finished packing up my backpack, I'm hiking Mt Adams starting mid morning today, and Monday. I'll drop off my carboy as I'm leaving town. Hope this is cool. I'll stash it in the bushes or quietly place it on your porch seeing as it'll be about 8 am. Stoked. *Mentally kicking myself*

Busy guy! Got your beer into the barrel and we are close to the top with foam. I think in a week or two we can use 5 gallons to get the actual liquids filled up once the foam dies down. I think ibrewaletx is on that. Here's a pic from this am after pitching the last batch.
