Posted in thread: Boutique Yeast? Anyone heard of them, or how to contact them? on 07-11-2015 at 03:02 PM
I used some of his brett saison mix back in the March. Still aging, but turning out to be an
excellent beer. It's the same guy that runs Black Project Brewing. I see his posts on MTF and
he seems to b...

I have one going that is a sour brown that I added some cabernet must to. It's about six months
old and I'm still a little unsure of it. I'll hang on to it and see. It's around 12% ABV and
the pH has ...
Posted in thread: Anyone used RVA-263 (Fantome strain) yeast yet? on 07-09-2015 at 09:07 PM
If memory serves me, the Wyeast Biere de Garde strain is supposed to be the primary Fantome
strain too. Who knows what else goes in the beer, but it's definitely not a single species in
there when it'...
Posted in thread: Anyone fermenting sours in corny kegs? on 07-09-2015 at 05:49 PM
I secondary/bulk age all my sours in corny kegs. Just easier for me. I like the amount of space
they take up. I like that I can take samples without having to open up the vessel and allow
oxygen in. J...

Some more attenuation would be good because it's still a little too sweet for my tastes. If I
can get it down a between 1.010-1.005, I'll be happy. It's not that it was a bad beer before,
but rather i...

Thanks. I wasn't planning on it being done any time soon, but I always like to have a
contingency plan. I figured with the simple sugars from the grapes it would be droping a little
quicker, but you'r...

Last year I brewed a darker biere de garde that was fermented with WLP670 and Crooked Stave Hop
Savant dregs. Long story short, it never really developed to my liking. Not bad, but not
something I wan...
Posted in thread: Yeast Bay--offering some Brett blends on 01-13-2015 at 12:59 PM
the smell was akin to bad vegetablesThis is pretty much spot-on for the way mine smells. It
was an experiment, so I'm not real bummed if it doesn't work out, but ti would have been nice
to get two ba...

I did a no-boil beer the other day from my second runnings. I ended up with a wort that was
around 1.031. I pitched a vial of Melange on Saturday. It's been at 69 since then. I just
checked up on it a...

The first one came out interesting. It was an experiment, so I had no idea what to expect. I
drank it all, but not sure if it was my thing. The second stout was great. I just bottled the
sour stout a ...
