That looks good. I have 40 lbs of flaked corn so I could use that in place of the maze and use a decoction mash to hit my temps

The brett half is nicely cleared and probably almost done. The ECY20 batch is in its sick stage. The first and last time I took a gravity reading it was at 1.010 but it was at the sick period and I don't think that viscosity allows for accurate measuring. I am getting the snotty pellicle bubbles right now in small rafts. It should be fully covered in pellicle in a week or two I think. I think it has about two more months.

Also I got my purple corn for the flemish ale batch. I will brew that after new years when I can hopefully make it to Princeton Homebrew and pick up a culture of ECY02.

I bottled up the ECY03 half. It was crystal clear at bottling. I only bottled up 24 bottles worth of the ECY03. The rest was ran into the ECY20 version because I want a larger amount of the potentially sour version. I will brew up another batch of spelt saison as soon as this one is bottled up. I just need to buy the spelt in bulk this time because locally it was $4/lb.

$4/lb? Even at a local grocery store that's usually very expensive it was only $2/lb around here. Are you buying that at a LHBS?

Only place I could find it was a health food store and it was organic. I will be ordering some from Vitaspelt soon. I can get 25lbs shipped for like $35 or something like that.

I just ordered some from them and 10 lbs came to $23.94 shipped. I had to call it in since the website wouldn't allow me to choose ground shipping so it was quoting like $38 for shipping alone.

Well after talking about this beer today I decided to take a gravity reading, taste, and transfer to secondary. I should have transferred a while ago but the the primary had so much gunk stuck to the sides I couldn't see if it was bacterial haze or just protein haze. Anyway the beer is weighing in at 1.004 compared to 1.010 a month ago. There is a noticeable acidity that should become more apparent the drier it gets. It still has a slick viscosity but much less than before.

Well this thing is done fermenting. I now have it sitting in my coldish garage to get it to hopefully drop clear and bright like my ECY03 half. It has a nice sour note and a touch of hop bitterness which is exactly what I wanted. I hope it doesn't take forever to drop brite because I want to package and brew it up again.
