You are making some assumptions here that may or may not be correct. You can't (necessarily)
assume there will be a 1:1 ratio of EtOH/Lactic acid produced, as fermentation conditions and
strain will l...

This sounds great - I'll be looking for the tasting notes, I'm curious to see how it turns out!
Pretty cool concept to be using dregs from a previous dark saison batch too - keep some of the
Posted in thread: Bottling with brett questions - Dark Winter Saison on 04-22-2015 at 06:47 PM
I guess I'm qualified to chime in.You'll get an extra .5 volumes of CO2 for every .001 drop in
gravity in the bottle. At 1.010, that is a lot of potential carbonation that could be produced
if you add...
Posted in thread: Cell Count of White Labs Brett vials? on 04-21-2015 at 06:09 PM
It would seem that Wyeast puts substantially more brettanomyces cells in their smack packs.
Jason did a cell count of Wyeast at 68 billion cells for brett brux. That would put it at
roughly 25-38x mor...

I have some friends who chatted with the dude from Black Man Yeast at the Blue Bonnet home brew
shindig. They said the dude was super cool/nice, and has a reputation for being a stellar home

Thanks for the clarification Michael. Interesting. I guess I'm confused because in your earlier
post you said you struggled to get it below a pH of 4.0. I'm excited to get my new BYO in the
mail to se...

5335 is L. buchneri as far as I'm aware. We actually got better results with it than WLP677
(which echos my own experiences and frequent emails I get). The L. plantarum was one of the
isolates from Om...

A friend (Matt/drabmuh) and I have a similar experiment in the most recent BYO with L. brevis,
L. delbrueckii, L. plantarum, and L. buchneri. 5335 seemed to be the most temperature
sensitive, at best ...

old thread but...there's just brett in there. in no bacteria, as far as I'm aware it has both
ale yeast and Brett. Here's a few notes on the microbes from John Laffler.

I used wild lacto(I Think? What ever it was it made a rad Pellicle) off of 2row I pitched
directly with my US-05 for fermentation. It seems to be souring as it ages which has me
hesitant to bottle, bu...
