That's amazing. But what happens when you need to rack out of the bottom barrels? You have a fork lift?

One is an "authentically" brewed lambic, one is a "chopped down" lambic mash, another is a sour with yeast from roselare and crooked stave, fourth is a black sour with all twenty yeasts from the EBY experiment, the last two are TBD.

To pull from the bottom barrels, there is 4" of headspace, and I find that laying down my high temp silicon tubing on the floor of the barrel I am able to extract all the beer sans yeast (since its had a year to fall out.)

Anyone is welcome to come by anytime for a taste. In Portland, ME. Just had the Portland Brew Bus come by for a tour. Here are a few more shots.
