Thanks,
I bottle my beers in a regular bottles, will it still keep for years?
Belgian bottles are like Champagne bottles, right?

I am planning on about 1 OZ. of hops, will it be fine?

Thanks,

Berliner Wiess usually is carves to 3 to 3.5 volumes, which can break normally bottles. Cut down on the carbonation if you use regular bottles. Also, give it more time, as the lacto can eat waste from the yeast.

Thanks Morkin,
How does it differ from regular Weissbier?

Morkin, I made a wild lacto starter per your instructions and it has turned out great! I brewed it a week ago and had a pellicle in just 5 hours Just tasted a sample and it is nice and tart, could drink it now but the 1056 is still fermenting. I posted a photo here... http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f127/pel...ml#post3553951

At what temp should you keep the lacto starter after pitching the grains and water, im having a hard time keeping the temps up. Best I can muster is about 70.

I get water from the tap at about 100 degrees or so. I then place the starter in a warm place in my kitchen. As long as it stays above 70 degrees you should be fine. You'll know if the lacto is working or not by the smell and how it looks.

Another question morkin, my wort took off with the lacto starter and looks nice, but at what temp did you ferment the us-05 at? I was thinking in the low 70s to keep the lacto chugging away.

I pitch the US-05 after I've let the lacto go for a day or 2. it usually settles down to around 80 I think, depending on if it's summer or winter. The high threshold for us-05 I think is around 80 anyways, so you won't get any off flavors. But even if you would get off flavors, it would be fruity, which could taste nice in a Berliner.

Quick question for you - you only pitch the liquid from the lacto starter right? Sounds dumb but just wanted to be sure...
