Flanders Red in Stainless
I'm about to make a flanders red using the roselare blend from Wyeast. I have way more stainless corny kegs than glass carboys and would like to keep my carboys available for my "normal" brew cycle over the next 18 months as this one ages.

Wild Brews seems to imply a glass carboy with the silicone stopper allows an acceptable amount of oxygen in, while stainless doesn't. Does anyone have any experience with extended aging wild beers in corny kegs? Can I make a decent flanders red by pitching roselare, fermenting for a week, and transferring to a corny for 18 months at cellar temps?

Re: Flanders Red in Stainless
Ron,

I haven't aged on in a corny, but I don't think

O2 is essential for the Rosy blend during aging. As you know the blend is a small synopsis of the vast bugfarm indigenous to these brews. Those brews with some O2 (through wood) can give a vinagar-edge - which you'll be lacking in a corny, and is not a bug included in the blend anyway.
