Perhaps with your better deutch sprechen, you could translate the pages found here and
bring out the recipe and method with which this beer is made.
thanks in advance.

You know what’s funny. I just checked the forum and was thinking “where was this Zoigel beer thread?”

I didn’t know about Zoigel beer until you brought it up and I searched the web for it. Seems like a neat tradition but I expect it to taste like Kellerbier. It’s brewing process seems much simpler, more relaxed and less tightly controlled. Many brew pubs brew like this and advertise that their cloudy beers are better for you. In most cases it’s just about saving time and investment in a filter system.


Kai, I found a link on this with some more information...

Are you planning to put the beer in the barrel and then put the bladder in the barrel over the top of the beer to fill in the airspace above the beer?
That was my intent when I posted the question. yes.  However, now I have found a 50 liter oak barrel
and so I no longer am persueing that.  Still If I got into barrels, and had a bladder, I could double up
on oak ageing. I even thought of putting water into the bladder just anything to fill the void so I could
get beer into the oak.

Depuceleuse--No. 4
From Avery Brewery
Quote"Depuceleuse Flavor Description:
A 100% brettanomyces fermentation gives this brew lots 'o funk throughout, intertwined with pungent elements of sour cherries, delicate aromas of aged wood and a gentle spice imparted by the zinfandel barrels.  Adventurous and true to the spirit of our Barrel-Aged Series of one-and-done brews, Depuceleuse is a forceful departure from the mindset of traditional beer style and features a harmony of intriguing flavors.  "

Ok Mikey if you went to the release tasting, please update us with your opinion.
If / when I get my six-pack I will chime in as well......

  Only question is, why would you?  The beer would not have any contact with the oak so you might as well have it in a plastic food grade barrel.

Because of price and availability...the larger ones are easier to obtain.
As far as oak contacting the beer, It would contact it, just perhaps not as much take longer to get same effect.

Thanks Karl, you have just assisted me in devising my methodology for
this project. I desired to try some non brett beer from this barrel.  I will harvest
a batch and replace it with a fresh batch and then put in the brett...a couple
months from now.  Then when cherries come into season bring them into
the arena...should be july/aug for sour cherries. thanks for the tip on
that spice and I will try to procure some of that in the interim. So many options so little time....

Will it roll well when fully loaded?

Not sure if you meant when the barrel was loaded, or when I am

Testing that in the  Another thing that would work is
the forearm forklift, 2 ppl could move it easily then. Or you could just sling
suspend it between uprights on the straps.

I didn't notice if you put casters on the stand

It is built upon a furniture dolly...12$ cheepo from harbor freight.
I will still need a couple of angle supports at the bases of the legs....hurricane clips or something
or a horizontal stringer/spreader to keep em from folding over...

Well, It had red wine in it briefly...fresh dump...
I am currently fermenting 15 gallons of a rochefort attempt.
When that finishes, I plan to put the beer into the oak and add
some Brett Lambicus and 10 lbs of Sour Cherries.  The brett and
Cherries may wait for a while until I pull like 5 gallons of beer back out
of the oak in a couple months.....
So it would be a BSDA

Well it ain't really beautiful, but tiz functional and I am not worried about
the weight of the liquid making it crash down...

Tried to get it the height to rack into cornies and not so tall I cannot
get fresh beer back into the thing.... ;)

I wound up getting my barrel from these folks. It was used with red wine contact
exactly as I requested.  Also they seem to want to accomodate even small
time joe's like myself and were not worried about big bux and volume sales stuff.
Nice selection of sizes as well. They are nicely made and the 50 liter weighs in
at 48# of wood. So they are not thin staves.

Vadai World Trade Enterprise. Nice folks Great Barrels, I gotta say, Mine
did NOT even leak 1 drop....!!!
