I just bottled an 11 month-old lambic that used BugFarm 5. Got down to 1.008. Started around
1.050. I was hoping for a bit more attenuation, but we will see how the bottles develop. Cork
and caged alm...

I put some under a microscope about two months ago. Full of lacto. Have not seen any ropiness
yet. My only IBUs were 1 oz saaz 5.0 AA for 60 minutes. I think its a good, maybe even very
good, on its o...

Yeah, my dubbel turned pretty sour. Its still nice though, but I don't have space on tap for
it. Almost all the 5 gallons is in my brewing closet. I think i will propagate up the keg dregs
to make a n...

IPA is kegged, 1.058 to 1.010, 70% belgian pils, 26% flaked wheat, 4 % C75. Mashed 152F. Nice,
dry, hoppy. Real winner. Not sure where the Trois is here, but I think it only helps with all
the hops I ...

he probably means he boils and cools in his kettle, then pitches directly in there, maybe into
a fridge for temp regulation. I have heard of that before; its just one less vessel to clean.

Thanks guys. Makes sense for the difference. I just usually here from people that brett
starters are quite silent, but this strain is quite a different beast from other bretts.

Did people's starters get going immediately? I have made a 500 mL starter and the next morning
there was definitely activity. People say brett starters need more time to get going, but
perhaps Trois i...

Well i just kegged this dubbel up, and my friends agree there is something sour there. I am
tempted to just throw the beer into the closet for a few months; i figure it will get ropy
