    It took a while, but mine cleared. I did cool the wort portion before adding to the juice. It
    took around a 4-5 weeks in the carboy for the yeast/protein/etc to drop. I suspect cold
    crashing or gelati...

    Nope, I wouldn't. But thats just me.Is there any particular reason, or just a gut feeling? I
    can respect both.The density of silicone oil is similar to water, though actually a little less
    which is wh...

    I'm getting ready to set up some sour fermentations that will likely become part of a solera.
    One of the bigger issue is accidentally letting the airlocks run dry due to the long aging
    times.Do you th...

    I agree. The lower pH after degassing makes so sense to me. I could make some wild guesses as
    to why, but it wouldn't really add anything. The beer pH of 4.4ish is not in a buffering region
    for CO2 sp...

    I brewed this up a few weeks ago. I was going to do the cold conditioning in a keg for
    convenience, and to save on footprint space in my keezer. I actually ended up getting almost 6
    gallons of beer ou...

    Hmmmmm, I would have actually expected the pH to increase after degassing. That's good to know

    pH is logarithmic. A pH of 3 has 10x the acid concentration as a pH of 4. I suspect that
    Cantillion Gueuze is pretty acidic. According to Embrace the Funk, it has a pH of 3.4, which is
    an order of mag...

    It also seems to flocculate better than 1056/001, which is nice for making crystal clear beer.

    Do you guys have any tips for kegging these kind of beers? I transferred and pressurized about
    a week ago. I thought I did a pretty good job at not picking up much trub or hop matter, but
    there's enou...

    I think the concept could be cool, but implementation could be tricky. As others have
    mentioned, I think you need something more. Something easy enough to allow novice brewers to
    participate, but inte...
