From the OP:

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

As you can tell, SWMBO is very accommodating of my obsession taking up all her laundry space over here (not to mention making me a homebrew cake as seen in other posts). Correct in assuming the carboys are each a share in a larger club project. If I really fermented that much beer on my own, I'd have larger vessels. The barrel currently holds a Cherry Lambic that was brewed Jan 2009 and it's getting distributed to the shareholders this week. After a hot water flush, the carboys on the floor, full of Flanders Brown, will be racked back into the barrel to meet up with some nasty critters.

The barrel is a 60gal vessel that previously held Cabernet Sav. It's American oak, medium toast with toasted heads. The first sour beer was a Flanders red and it sat for 12 months. Some say it was too oaky/tanic. The lambic sat in it for 10 months and the oak character should be less due to repeat use. By the time the Brown sits for 6-8 months, the oak may be insignificant but it's the resident bacteria that we're most concerned with at this point.
