I mean, there's 150 gallons of beer in this picture.



The active primaries you see are individual shares of Flanders Brown that are replacing the 60 gallons of Cherry Lambic in the wine barrel. Sniff... tear..

Bobby,
You're a drummer? I mean, I respected you before for your brewing prowess, but now I'm speechless.... In a good way! Rock on!

Dayum!

How long do you keep the brews in the barrel? I assume because it is so big (relative to the little 20L barrels Sacc is getting) that the contact time needs to be longer than it will for these mini-barrels. Do you just keep tasting until it's right?

Bobby:

Are you done brewing for the year? I mean, you're pushing your 200 gallon limit really hard. Lucky for you the meter gets reset on January 1.

I wish you were my neighbor... You getting tired of New Jersey?

I'm guessing you missed the fact that those carboys are all for individual shares of a larger brew club project?
