Just thought i would check in with you guys and gals.
My 3 5 gallon batches are ready to be added to my 15.5 gallon wine barrel.

The dregs from my Cuvee and bugs are all going in the Barrel today.
I had to built a make shift barrel holder out of some scrap wood.

I'll post pics when i get a chance later.

All the advice has been very helpful.

I did a full turbid mash on all 3.
4 hour boils.

grain bill was 6lbs pilsner.
4 lbs raw wheat.
.25 dried malt extract.
and about 2 oz dextrin a batch.

I used 1056 yeast.
Last batch was still bubbling a bit when i added bugs.

I used 2 oz of sazz pellets at 1.4 alpha a batch.

i would get more batches going but i only have 1 barrel at the moment.

I think my girl friend would be a little mad if i spent 3 more weeks not brewing her a blackberry wheat beer.

Though i may get 1 more flanders going.

Awesome! This is pretty much what I'd like to do.

Where'd you get the wine barrel?

The barrel was from a friend. He had done several batches of red wine in it so it was time for fresh oak for him.

The first time i cleaned it it smelled like vanilla in my house for days.

Nice!

I'm hoping to find one myself, that same size and used would be perfect. If you don't mind, could you ask him where he found it?

Thanks!
