PMM - Berliner Weisse "Brew"
Mainiacs - I thought I'd try a thread so as to not spam people with email.

Planning on a Berliner Weisse "brew" since I'm thinking no-boil. 60/40 pils & wheat. Lacto starter for 5 days @90 deg, then mash 150 for a few days, then pitch and ferment. Thoughts?

Just some reading material for those interested in the process and different styles:

I plan on doing that last one on my own - as well as contributing to the larger group "brew."

Just want to be in on news.

Responding to keep track of this. I'm on board.

Dig it. I can lend no technical input, but am very interested in a share.

How did we want to split up the mash/brew day? I guess a couple of us could head over to Brian's place the Monday before and then we can just hangout on "mash out day"?

Yes, let's stink up Brian's house. I hear the mash only smells like vomit, occasionally. We'll also (possibly) want to make a lacto starter, which would be a week or so in advance. The trick will be keeping it all warm around 100 deg. Heated pad? Tile heater? Maybe one of these?

ha! I figured we'd be using your place only because you've got the massive pot(s).

I wouldn't have a problem having them at my place, mostly b/c they'd be in the basement and I live on the 3rd floor. As far as keeping them warm, I'd just planned on putting it in a cooler with a hot pad cranked up, or just sit it on one on high.

I guess it depends on the interest and whether we can all agree on a recipe/method. I prefer to brew everything as traditional as I can. With all the Berliner Weisse madness on the internet right now, it's hard to read between the lines and find out exactly what the right method is. I still haven't read enough material to really have a concrete idea. I'm more obsessed with lambics at the current time.

I am always down for brewing berlinerweisse, so count me in.

I have made it with a standard mash and a decoction hopped short boil for pasteurization. Both times I used the WL berlinerweisse blend with solid results.

Craig as done a couple turbid/extended mashes so he can probably lend some insight.
