OK how about OG 1.052. I did a rough calculation for grain bill I just assumed 75% efficiency, went with Pils 55% Wheat 45%. Went for a target post-boil size of 60 gallons, so I figure we'll lose about a gallon from each brewers system for a total of 55 gallons in the barrel.
Pils 55% 37.5ppg
Unmalted Wheat 45% 37ppg
52 * 60 gal = 3120 pts
(3120)/((37.5 * .75)*0.55 + (37 * .75)*0.45) = 111.6 lbs
111.6 * .55 = 61.4 lbs
111.6 * .45 = 50.2 lbs
So we'd need about 60 lbs of Pils and 50 lbs of unmalted wheat.
I am thinking we fill the barrel by the following weekend after it's emptied which is memorial day weekend. If some brewers have wort in the barrel before then that is ok. We can pitch the chico yeast after all the worts are combined and then after a little while look at adding some commercial lambic blends.
