Default New Barrel photos - pLambic underway!!

I just finished the punishing task of filling 2-63 gallon barrels by myself.

After the blow off settles down I will top both barrels and wait until Summer before tasting there progress.

That is a great setup. Would love to brew at that scale but for now my brew pot is a turkey fryer.

Will hopefully have my Brutus 10 built towards the end of the summer. Can't wait to be able to fill a barrel, even better would be two! What was the grain bill like if you don't mind me asking? I am thinking about doing a lambic sometime soon.

Can you share how you wired these up? Do you control the spin speed somehow? I love the idea!

Damn...how long did it take you to fill them? Did you brew back to back every day for two weeks or what?

Grain for one barrel:
82 Pale
30 Pils
16 Vienna
8 C-77
19 White Wheat
2.5 Spec B
.75 Choc
1 Roast

24.2 oz aged hops (saaz and EKG)

Second barrel:
91 pils
20 flaked wheat

14 oz aged hops (saaz and EKG)

The second barrel might need 5 gallons of a Saison to top off. I will see tomorrow.

All that beer took me about 5 days of brewing to complete.

The first barrel was filled with 30 gallons to ferment (WLP530). Then I added some 25 worth of fermented beer. Some of the beer was seconded with dregs of lambics, some with pedio and lacto and Al B's bugfarm II.

The second barrel was brewed used a high gravity method. The grain bill of 36 pounds would produce 15 gallons of about 1.066 to 1.070. When I added 5 gallons of H2O to that it came down to about 1.050-1.052. It was filled with 40 gallons once to ferment (Flanders Golden, WLP 530 and AL B's bugfarm III) and followed by 15 gallons and left to ferment. I will top with fermented beer soon.

Can any one but me follow that??
