I now have a 13.2 Vadai on its way to sit next to his older little brother.
In wanting to get this Falls wine into both barrels is it ok to start MLF right in them?

That's what many commercial operations do.

You can.... I do it in carboys so it gives me a better chance to observe and then perform another clean rack in 8 weeks. Then to the barrels.
