Default My first Lambic

Friday will be the day: we are brewing our first Lambiek
We allready have a Flanders Red on a 50 liter barrel, this year we make 100 liter Lambiek.

The first preperation for the barrel allready took place: drill a hole in the middle and fill with water.











We will try to use the traditional turbid mash.

Nice. Keep us updated.

Little sidestep, I took some pictures of my 50 liter barrel with a 13 months old Flanders Red (with Roeselare blend)

Awesome stuff. I'm looking to do a barrel aged or Flanders soon... Carboys aren't as cool. I'm assuming it's a used barrel.. Where did you get it?

will you spontaneously ferment it? Nice stuff, keep us posted

Thanks!
It is a 2 year used barrel (whine), I bought it at my local shop in The Netherlands.

It isn't spontaneous fermentation, I used a clean dry yeast for the primary, and added the young beer with a wyeast Roeselare blend when racking to the barrel a year ago.

Your in the Netherlands? Close enough to Flanders. Try five gallons spontaneously fermented sometime. I'd love to see what happens

Flanders or lambic I suppose. No I know they are different countries, I'm not that stupid haha. Flanders is northern Belgium, Wallonia south. I was saying your closer, then say, me.
