Default We want the funk, 60 gallons of funk.

The WHALES Flanders red barrel is born.

It's the Jamil Z recipe based on the concept of a near full fermentation on WLP001, then a healthy dosing of Brett in the barrel for about 10 months. I think we're going to take our shares out next December. Incidentally, the winery we bought the barrel from also gave us a bottle of the Cabernet that just came out of the barrel. We're going to sample both on the same day.

Hope it's someone you trust that's acting as custodian of this beaut! Hate for December to roll around, and the "angel's share" turns out to have been twenty gallons....

Looks sweet, definately an interesting project.

That's my basement so if anyone is going to be sneaking some out, it will be me. Actually, we have to brew up another 5 gallons because we anticipate plenty of evaporation in the year's time.

Ought of curiousity, how much did that barrel run you? Our homebrew club (still somewhat fledging) is being run by a couple of guys who have the capacity to make a HUGE batch, so I might suggest a project like this to them. Maybe not doing a Flanders, but it could be cool to brew up something like an old ale and oak it for a long time.

We've bought Applejack barrels for $25 and this Cab barrel was $50.

That's an amazingly nice price for that barrel. You guys got one heck of a deal!

That is a great deal. I thought I got a great deal when I paid $85 for a used 60 gallon wine barrel. The barrel is currently in Oregon full of Belgian Quad!
