    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
    pils, the rest is all crystals, wheat, etc.

    Those 1-2 gallon pulls are going to take a while as well. I'd sour the whole batch with

    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...

  • Posted in thread: wlp 655 any good solo? on 11-10-2014 at 02:27 PM
    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
    more) th...

    Along similar lines, someone gave me a 50lb bucket of sorghum syrup. Morbidly, I'm thinking of
    making a 50G batch of it and tossing it in a barrel (barrel is recently empty and this is
    cheaper than ho...
