not sour enough, went to the brew store and they are out of flaked corn :'(

I did 5 lbs 6row, 2 lb corn, 4 oz crystal 20, 1 oz chocolate, and 1 oz styrian goldings, i also did this in a rain storm so it was no chill

Yea I always batch sparge at 168. I actually do a double batch sparge. I haven't had any nasty growth since my first few batches, but when I did I just scraped and sparged as normal. I really like the small amount of sourness, just barely perceptible but still makes it unique.

Does it typically smell nasty when you boil a batch of this?

The mash smells bad but I don't think the wort does.

I just took my first sample of a two week old Kentucky Common....
I used a 24 hour mash, the "standard" grist, and 0.5 oz Amarillo hops at FWH and 60 mins.
This is one interesting beer. The smell is fairly standard, but the flavor is unique. There is a slight sourness at the start, followed by the lovely Amarillos, and finishing with a lingering sour touch. There is something in the flavor that touches on "slightly fermented slightly rotten fruit". SWMBO loves it uncarbed. I'm looking forward to getting this carbed on tap.

Sounds good, except for the rotten fruit part, hah. I've never got that. Hope it's good though!

I just brewed another recipe not using a sour mash. Just brewed it as a standard beer. The 1902 book doesn't mention anything about souring, only other sources say some brewers did. I'm interested as to how it is without the souring. So far I think my Recipe #3 with the 18hr mash has been the best. We'll see how these next 2 turn out. Brewing the same, non-soured recipe Wednesday, except bumping the specialty grains up a little.

After a couple more batches and monitoring fermentation closely, I am going to try a <5 day KY Common, kegging before fermentation is finished, thus carbonating itself in the keg.
