    Interesting. Well we know that HF uses Rahr. Do you suspect Edward is made with pale 3-4L or
    2-row 2L ?No idea. I'd try both and see which one you prefer in your beers.

    Braufessor, Rahr 2 row as in the 2L?I see hill farmstead lists pale and caramel malt in his
    ingredients for Edward. Which I'm assuming translates to rahr pale ale malt which is 3-4L.
    Edward looks to b...

    With malt adding anywhere from 200-900ppm each of chloride and sulfate after mashing, why do
    you believe upping these anions by 25-50ppm is going to make any change whatsoever in the
    finished product?...

    Just talked to Kyle at Millstone Cellars for an article on "weird" ciders for BYO. He's a big
    advocates of wild ciders using yeast from unpasteurized cider.Cider lacks the complex dextrins
    of wort, so...

  • Posted in thread: apricot lambic pits or no pits on 07-10-2015 at 12:00 PM
    FWIW Casey Brewing does halved apricots with no pits.Agreed, although as the other poster noted
    they also brew Noyaux, which is aged on toasted apricot kernels (the actual seed within the
    pit). It is ...

    I must have looked for an hour on your blog and missed all the wine and sour beer posts.

    catch most of them: ...

    I wouldn't worry too much. No way to guarantee they're good, but I'd be less worried about
    sulfur than acetic. I've had some great beers go through a rotten egg phase. Best of luck!

    I'm a big advocate of blending wine into sour beers! It's much easier to get good wine than it
    is good grapes, and it gives you much more control.Last night I posted a tasting of a saison
    with German ...

  • Posted in thread: Turning a beer into a sour or funky beer on 07-08-2015 at 12:52 PM
    I think lambic dregs would be the best option if it doesn't taste terrible already. Any way to
    move the beer to a carboy? You're luckily that the lid was attached well, that's usually the
    biggest issu...
