Thanks. I figured for the buggy barrel I'd just pitch one of the 5 gallons shares with about 4 packs of US-05 or Nottingham to make a big starter in a carboy and add that to make sure the sacc was going to play a partial role. On the new barrel, I had considered pitching the dregs of the old barrel but thought a starter of lambic blend in a 5 gallon batch would make the two beers completely different for interest.

Good point about the gravity contribution of the concentrate. I had thought about that and planned to make the base beer a little weaker. 65 brix concentrate diluted 58.5 to 1.5 should only add 1.007 to the OG. Not that big of a deal I suppose.

I like the idea of fruiting later too. Everyone can get nuts with different options and those that want to use fresh fruit are welcome to spend the money.

i say grow your own if you have the space.
I just put in a sour cherry tree and some raspberries.
too bad the tree is 5 years out and the berries are 2.

ok, peek inside tonight i got a nice layer of funk on top these days in my barrel, but i am worried about mold. I have what looks like a layer of pellicel on the inner lip of my barrel on the wood.

Should i be worried?
Ive got quite a bit of time in money in this project these days.

Looks harmless to me. Pellicles can be absolutely horrendous looking. If you're really worried, smell it at least. You should be able to tell the difference between mold and the funky goodness.
