  • Wife got me a Mr. Beer Kit one year for my birthday...seemed to easy so I tried upping the volume and using partial grain, on a stove top...still seemed to easy so I got myself a cooler and put together my own false bottom manifold and a propane turkey fryer and am now doing all grain brewing!
  • Definitely continuing my sour projects...I love funky brett beers too, so I will probably try a non soured brett beer sometime in the near future. As far as clean beers are concerned I am still trying to perfect my IPA and I plan on trying a Weihenstephaner method for brewing a Dunkelweizen this fall.

    I brewed a batch of french saison using the Wyeast 3711 French Saison strain, which attenuated
    the wort down to 1.004 gravity. I then pitched a starter I made with the dregs of a Boulevard

    Traditionally speaking Saisons were fermented at pretty high temps. They don't call it
    "Farmhouse Ale" for no reason. I have only used the Wyeast Belgian Saison blend, yes it is a
    little high maintena...

    Do a short boil (about 10-15 minutes) and pitch your lacto. I tried to sour a mash once, never
    again...LoL If you don't mind my asking what were the flavors? Did it just have a bunch of

    rely on a very clean mash tun to make sure I only get a lactobacillus infection...I don't
    really want any...
