I'm with ptownbmac - it sounds like you inoculated before you really mashed anything. You need

Good call. I'm not even doing a 60 min bittering charge, only doing a 10 min and FO/WP
addition. So I could just pull off a gallon before adding any hops at the 10 minute mark.

I used grain to sour my first-ever BW and it worked perfectly but I think I'll try the capsule

Well at least your instructions err on the side of longer fermentation than the kits which

Not relevant to this at all, and I appologize for slightly hijacking your thread.... but I

Thank you!Is there a rule for the temperature of the sparge water?The recipe I'm doing only
