Default All-Grain - 8-8-08 Belgian sour ale.

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: WL 500
Yeast Starter: yes big one
Additional Yeast or Yeast Starter: Brett B.
Batch Size (Gallons): 5
Original Gravity: 1.090
Final Gravity: 1.004
Boiling Time (Minutes): 90
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 12
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 120 days
Tasting Notes: ......

8.00 lb Pale Malt (2 Row) Bel (3.0 SRM) Grain 46.1 %
8.00 lb Pilsner (2 Row) Bel (2.0 SRM) Grain 46.1 %
2.20 oz Hallertauer, New Zealand [8.50%] (60 min)Hops 50.6 IBU
1.00 oz Styrian Goldings [5.40%] (30 min) Hops 11.2 IBU
0.50 oz Hallertauer, New Zealand [8.50%] (30 min)Hops 8.8 IBU
1.00 oz Styrian Goldings [5.40%] (15 min) Hops 7.2 IBU
0.75 oz Tettnang [4.50%] (30 min) Hops 7.0 IBU
1.00 oz Saaz [4.00%] (5 min) Hops 2.2 IBU
0.50 oz Styrian Goldings [5.40%] (5 min) Hops 1.5 IBU
1.35 lb Turbinado (10.0 SRM) Sugar 7.8 %

After primary fermentation add another 1 pound of turbinado sugar to wort, along with a big starter of Brett B.


Beer is amazingly complex, not really sure what beer style it would be, but it, is amazing. It was more an experiment to push the limits of brewing a belgian beer with lots of hops and still get some belgian flavors out of it.

Around 75 or so, yeah it still has a little alcohol flavor to it. You really have to watch how much of this stuff you drink, but its really complex.

Honestly I can not think of anything I would change to this one, I was really happy how this one turned out. I would not call this you run of the mill sour beer though, it has a different flavor profile from most sour beers.

Default Brett B


How would this compare to a Jolly Pumpkin beer or Orval? I think Brett B is the strain that is used in secondary fermentation, and I want to know how it presents itself when used in primary fermentation.

I'm thinking about brewing this, what's the WL500? It's not showing up in BTP for me.
