  • Posted in thread: Lambic sour after a month on 09-23-2014 at 10:21 AM
    Lambics go through a complex life that really does take 12-18. The bacteria and Brett become

    The green sludge that you harvested will not offer enough, if any, aromatic bearing oils for a

    extracted was converted. your ipa is a light grist, leading to a borderline pH. Consider buying
