  • Posted in thread: Fruit recommendations on 08-08-2015 at 02:38 PM
    So I thought I would Necro this thread and ask how everything is tasting? I have done a
    blueberry lambic two years past that ended up fantastic, and recently racked my second batch
    onto the fruit. I w...

    Looks fine to me. My Consecration clone had a very similar colors/ textured pellicle, that was
    more of a "skin" on the top. The Consecration Clone turned out great. No worries mate, RDWDAHB.

    Probably because that is THE Traditional way to do Lambic. Lambic is coolshipped, and then
    racked to barrels. It is fermented and aged in the same vessel with no racking.

    Ou of curiosity, how long ago was that, and what was your process (general idea on grain bill,
    mash, OG). Did you just leave the wort in a open bucket? How did you innoculate pre-coolship? I
    had some ...

    This is my Consecration clone. I bottled it one month ago and added a half a vial of WL Brett C
    at bottling. For the first 2 weeks after bottling it had NO carbonation and is now sitting at
    light-ish ...

    I would personally pitch some dregs from a couple commercial sours into each of them. The
    roeselare doesn't tend to get things sour enough on its own. What you are describing however
    sounds pretty fam...

    i've wondered about the headspace issue in the past too, but as long as you're not checking it
    all the time and the fermentation is somewhat active, it doesn't seem like you could have too
    much of a p...

    I was planning on leaving it on the fruit for 4 months or so. I didn't flush with CO2 (don't
    have CO2 or a kegging set up). I also have an even 3 gallons of lambic plus fruit in each
    carboy, which is ...

    Yeah, the pictures don't really do it justice. It is a nice, white bretty film. A couple of
