I've got the garage insulated and the barrel as well, but it's cold enough to let everything go dormant. Not going to harm anything, but it needs a warm season to finish up and sour a bit more.
Sounds good. Can't wait to find out how it turns out. I started another the following weekend with the bit of yeastcake I left in one of my carboys and its starting to get pretty sour now.

I'm curious, how many of you are still active here? It seems like everyone is gone, even though we planned to meet up soon to try it.

Starting to warm up in the garage and hopefully the bugs are slowly waking up again. Whenever we do the meetup I'll need someone to bring sanitizer so we can sample. I still have a wine thief here somewhere.

I also have someone's plastic ferment bucket and lid still too.

What are everyone's thoughts of meeting up on the 1 year anniversary of the pitch? I think that is the last week in June.
