Posted in thread: Attenuation in sour wort? on 05-28-2015 at 01:33 AM
I had a similar experience from my latest grain lacto culture. The wort attenuated from 1.034
to 1.011 while trying to kettle sour over 2 days. Oops! I pasteurized at 160f, trying to
minimize the etha...

I've actually made both recently. They're quite close, with ruination obviously being the more
bitter of the two. But the centennial flavor comes through clearly in both.

Keep the updates coming! You've got me wanting to try this, if for no other reason than to say
I did it. I mean, beer from sauerkraut. How cool is that?
Posted in thread: What type of wild yeast on grapes? Anything sour? on 03-18-2015 at 03:41 PM
Yeah, just for 5 minutes or so to sanitize it. It took two more repitches before it did
anything worthwhile, and I'm assuming that was because it took awhile for certain strains in

I started with about 2C of 1.030 unhopped wort. Probably should have started lower, but it was
second runnings from an AG batch, or at least what ran out of the spent grain at the end of

Posted in thread: What's going on with my lacto starter? on 03-16-2015 at 12:48 PM
