    It's not as bad as you think. Promise. Just read the directions for whatever you're going to
    do, then imagine all the steps in your head. And have your HLT full.

    I'm about to get 3 - 1gallon barrels, a 3 gallon and a 10 gallon to supplement the 50's. How
    much wax did you end up going through.

    Recipe is definitely low in complexity. When I brew a flanders, only 60% of the malt comes from

    Sure! Not all sours are extreme :) I've noticed it in several brews, although never in super
    high amounts.

    For what its worth, I've been pitching a single smack pack of yeast into a 50Gallon barrel and
    have been having great results. I've also washed and reused yeast from the bottom of a
    fermenter or "rack...

    I thought it was good. It even was the funkiest of the batch in my experiment where I tried bug
    blends with hops.

    I got some ECY 20 in a trade and just ramped it up before pitching it into a 50G barrel where I
    used a modified turbid mash. ECY20 came out much more sour (but not too sour by any means, just
