  • I currently have a fairly minimal setup. I have a 20L stockpot for boiling, a 20L bucket, a 15L fermenter, 4 x 5L demijohns, a hose, hydrometer, 4 airlocks, a plastic mash paddle, and a large grain bag for whole mashes. I don't do false bottoms.

    I'm not sure but I would guess that cider clones are far more difficult than beer clones so you
    might just have to experiment.

    Alright, it's been sitting for 14 months now. Eucalypt honey, cooked to a deep burgundy,
    fermented with Trappist High Gravity, FG 1.000. Tasted it again just now and the rocket fuel
    flavour has subsid...

    After reading nearly all of this thread, I decided to take a stab as well. I threw some
    generously hopped pale ale into a couple of mason jars outside for an hour. Two days later I
    had what looked lik...

    First, thanks a lot guys.Ok so now it seems after a little more research on the info you two
    gave me it probably is Kloeckera? I'm in the 2 week window and down the points that would have
    likely been ...

    Sounds like Kloeckera apiculata ate all the glucose from the maple syrup and then bummed out
    when they got to the maltose. Wait until it starts again; if there's other strains, they'll eat
    the dead K....

    A post I saw a couple of pages back about the use of heavily hopped wort intrigued me. Does
    hopping reduce the likelihood of growing mould, in addition to bacteria? Mould is the main
    thing that stops ...

    Interesting. If you wanted to get a good feel for the lambic-ness of it, I'd actually do a
    lambic wort (minus aged hops) with unmalted wheat instead of malted, as that's what the
    bacteria munches on. ...

    The minimash sounds like quite a good idea, and cheaper than extract, which is what I used last
    time I tried this, a long time ago.Anyway, I've been planning to brew a Saison soon since it's
    Summer he...
