This will be the first barrel project in the monastery since the 90's.

Hey RJS - very cool project you've got going. Btw, you might find some good info over at the lambic & wild brewing forum. Several folks (including myself) have been playing with local, wild yeast fermentation. It's pretty amazing how well these projects can turn out. Good luck with yours!

Cool project. BTW, that "barrel tool" looks suspiciously like a masonry chisel.

I've never done anything with a barrel. I'm intrigued.

ive since filled 2 barrels. been super busy renovating brewhouse, new stainless fermentors, stainless countertops in fermentation house, and brewing. we will see how the beers turn out in a year. Good learning experience because i can see why we stopped our barrel projects a decade ago. Its a lot of work trying maintain barrels when your also trying to keep production of our flagships going, with all the ordering, inventory, brewing, cleaning, et cetera. Im done with barrels. Leaks are annoying too. Even if you get a new barrel, out here in the jungle a bore bug can make 5 holes in one night. Im glad i got it out of my system. Of course, if more than 1 monk were involved i could see it being enjoyable.
