Barrel Beer Replacement Brewday

Time to get ready to swap out the first round of beer currently residing in the barrel, so that means time to make more beer. Such a travesty! Since I already have 5 gallons via the infected No Name Best Bitter, this should give me plenty of gallons to build up that barrel beer stock.
