Yes, this one is the one. Something special is happening with it and my porter.

I believe it. Brett L. has significant character that has a way of shining in just about any wort, fermented at just about any temperature. Although, if you let it get warmer, it will give you a fruity and funky complexity that is unrivaled.

here one from a ways back that i wanted to throw in here. it's contributed by a user named landhoney. thread is from 2007 so this should be tasty if not all gone: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f85/he-a...ellicle-44148/ Flanders Red w/ Roselare

Whats the wooden dowel in the middle of the carboy? food for the yeast or does it serve another purpose?

It was probably inoculated with the bugs that are responsible for that nice looking pellicle. I haven't done this, but it's not uncommon.

It also allows the exchange of "micro-oxygen." Basically a cheap way of simulating the effects of a barrel.

Oh i see..lambic brewers in belgium want O2 to penetrate the barrels in small amounts over time.. correct? lambics are great but very strange..only beer that benifits from old hops and o2 ..does anyone have a link on how to set up that "dowel" like thing in a carboy? thanks

Winner.

Micro-oxidation. If you brew sours you might never get a pellicle and some of the tartness without the introduction of a little O2. But overdo it and you'll have vinegar.

Sour beers on a commercial level are often soured in barrels (at least I know Russian River does this). The wood of the barrel lets minute amounts of O2 in there.

Jamil describes using the rod in his Brewing Classic Styles. He got the idea from someone who did some back-of-the-envelope calculations of the ratio of the volume of a barrel to the surface area of the barrel, and concluded that the 1" diameter of a wood rod is almost perfect for the volume of a 5g carboy.

Me, I just open it once a month to taste it. Much more rewarding

(it's very possible he discusses it in his Flanders Red podcast here... click the MP3 button): http://thebrewingnetwork.com/shows/T...-Show-01-29-07

My bold. That's what I do. I'm considering using the oak rod, now that I'm fermenting quite a few sour beers and don't always taste them along the way anymore.
