Sorry, wasn't trying to call you out on poor sanitation. There's a difference between
sanitation and sterilization. There's always bugs around, and wort is a great growth medium for
a lot of them. Hec...

Sounds like you made a 10L wort stability test, and it failed the 3 day test. Not sure what the
flavor impact will be on your beer, but when I've done wort stability tests it has smelled

There's also the possibility that the yeast are suffering from a lack of nutrients. Not sure

They get out competed. The likelihood of you getting something in your jars is really low,

I forget where, but I've heard the same thing, but only when in the presence of oxygen (so no

I'm rebewing a sour saison base beer I made a few weeks ago. The last one I put onto cherries
and added the dregs of one of Jester King's sour saisons. I want to have a similar un-cherried
beer to com...
