Sorry for your loss, lad, but I would have done the same. Stay with your common sense and brew knowledge. Better brewing next time. Cheers..

Unfortunately now you will never know, it could have been the best batch of beer you have made.

I would have let it ride just to see what it came out like!


Naked Brew

Bartender Ill have what the gentleman on the floor is drinking.

I have spent more $ on brewing equipment than my truck cost!

Green beer sucks, let it age/condition/finish and become great before drinking it. WileECoyote

Good/Great beer takes time! if you want a quick beer go to the store or bar!

Things come and go. Good beer will live on for ever ! WileECoyote

next time just call is a sour mash and stay the course. i've sour mashed beers for multiple days. yes it will smell like vomit, BUT then you boil it to sterilize and add some hops (minimal). it will have a nice lacto tartness without being overly sour. my guess is it would have been absolutely fine. berliner weiss's can be tart and refreshing. for a good resource check out the Sour Mash appendix in the Joy of Homebrewing.


set I: Pale (3) -> Mild (4-5) -> amber / Victory (20-25) -> special roast (40-50) -> brown (70)
set II: pilsner (2) -> Vienna (3-4) -> Munich (8-10) -> dark Munich (20) -> aromatic / melanoiden (25-30)
encore: smoked (5)
