Sometime this year or next I'd like to make myself a Lambic, and AmandaK's recipe seems like a good one for me to try: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f72/lamb...-golds-322168/
I currently only do 5 gallon extract recipes but I know that I will want 10 gallons of this stuff.
1) Does anyone know of a good primary fermenter that would hold the 10 gallons and the krausen? I've seen the 16.5 gallon plastic fermenter from Midwest (close to me), but that is around $69 total (not a deal breaker but I figured there is a cheaper option y'all have figured out)
2) How could I go about making this with my same boiling equipment? I have the 20 qt stainless steel pot and it would be great if I could follow AmandK's recipe without me having to buy much more stuff. i.e. can this be made in my 5 gallon pot?
3) After splitting this into two 5 gallon glass carboys, will a normal clean with PBW be enough to clean it up so that it's safe to make other beers with or do the carboys need to stay separate after they have been used for a sour beer?
