Will do. I don't really have a choice now. I will rouse 'em up once a week for the eight weeks. Is typical form to have them suspended in a hop bag?
I would not do that much "rousing" Your beer does need to have the turbidity settle out so if you
do that much rousing, you are gonna have a cloudy yeasty beer. Better to rouse it once or twice, then
give it plenty of time to settle out. As far as your question, I cannot answer since I use either spirals
or the actual barrel never played with the cubes or chips...
