Hi folks. Took a sample today. 1.002, cloudy but less so than pitch. Bright golden color. Aroma was on profile. No real funk, acidity. Its somewhere around 3.8-4 pH I believe, my strips aren't terribly accurate. Slightly tart but not anywhere close yet obviously. I had just a sip and it was midly funky with a bit of bitterness and hint of spicyness. So far so good IMO. we need angel share asap, summer hit hard and its drying out at the top.

No problem, enjoyed hearing about the pitch day that I missed (my share was there ahead of time, I was out of town) and tasting a sample. I agree, slight bit of funk and a little bitterness- very tasty already. Glad there was enough angel share to get us through the winter.

Up to you all to decide. The beer is cleaner now but after just two months really doesn't have much of a lambic profile. It's probably going to go into hibernation once the cooler weather comes along and I wouldn't expect anything major happening until next May-June when temps get hot again and the bugs wake up and start working again. I'd say a June 2014 tasting would be more beneficial but if anyone wants to stop by and taste, just send me a PM and we can schedule something. Bring starsan!

Speaking of the lambic profile, I found this chart today: lambic evolution

I realize the post is labeled "Spontaneous" fermentation (which we did not do)... do we expect the timeline to be about the same? If so, let's at least taste at 6 months and at 10 months; that seems to be the times the profile is rapidly changing.

That appears to be the same chart that can be found in the Wild Brews by Jack Sparrow. It's hard to decipher because of where we started the brew. But I agree we should wait at least 6 months. We can plan on January 2014 and May/June 2014 for tastings.

Should be the same, we have the same bugs in there. 6 and 10 work for me if it works for everyone else.
