Modified to say funkify rather than sour.Plums are fresh/frozen from my tree. Last year I made
a Plum Saison with them and heated them to 160+ or 170+ (don't remember which I chose). This
year for the...

Hey all. I'm going to brewing up a Porter this weekend. In four weeks I'm going to transfer it
to 10 lbs of plums and secondary it for about two weeks. I want to funkify it with Brett B.
Should I add ...

Yeast was Wyeast 3711 French Saison BTW.

Very sure on the 1.003. Yes, I was very surprised as well. I added 10 lbs of fruit to 5 gals.

down to a...

Evil Twin, Evil Cousin, and Shallow Grave. It was a good tasting. He's very up front about what
the grists are and what hops. Even went as far as saying they use X number of sacks of this or
that. He ...

A little/lot off topic, but I just met Jamil Z at a Heretic tasting. Very nice guy. Just wished
I would have remembered to bring my own beer for him and the other guests to taste. Oh well.
Posted in thread: Kettle Dip Tube Question on 03-06-2012 at 05:29 PM
Reading some of the threads today made me think about dip tubes. Has anyone tried using
something like: something like: on the inside as your tube? Assuming you measured your height

Love those bottle bombs. Brewed up a nice Porter (think Black Butte Porter in flavor) last 4th
of July. Had it in primary for 4 or 5 weeks (don't have my notes on me). Been in bottles since.

That's really up to the beer and to you. The majority of people on here would say let it
ferment in the primary for 3 - 4 weeks. But you definitely want to take hydrometer readings for
several days in...
