  • Posted in thread: What to brew for non-beer drinkers? on 11-12-2015 at 01:55 PM
    I've been thinking that it would be a lot of fun to brew something that could win over someone
    that "doesn't like" beer. In my own experience, I didn't really like most beers I tried at
    first. It wasn...

    You guys are making the fast souring sound pretty attractive. Unfortunately, I've already
    ordered WL630 and it should be in on Friday. I had to special order it from my local home brew
    shop. I wont ha...

    The problem is that lacto doesn't really do much once primary fermentation is complete. To get
    long term souring in a beer, you need to use pediococcus, which develops over many many months.
    The recom...

    But why would you want to take 3-6 months to brew this style of beer when you really can turn
    it around in about 2 weeks? My biggest concern with this blend would be the yeast out-competing
    the lacto ...

    Another question. Since lacto can tolerate low ph, should I switch my sanitizer from Starsan to
    something that isn't an acid sanitizer?

    Since I'm pitching lacto and sach at the same time do I need to worry about having enough food
    for the lacto to work? Do I need to mash on the high side to make sure there is food for the
    lacto?

    When we talk about fast and slow, what kind of timeframe are we talking? I'm expecting a
    drinkable beer in 3-6 months. Is that reasonable with the above recipe?

  • Posted in thread: My First Sour Beer on 11-10-2015 at 04:13 PM
    I would skip the hops. Commercial lacto pitches are very hop sensitive and your beer will sour
    very slowly if it sours at all.I just realised I didn't include the amount of hops. 0.5 OZ of
    Hallertau f...

  • Posted in thread: no rinse sanitizor incompatable with metabisulphite? on 10-11-2015 at 01:45 PM
    I just thought of this this morning. This is more applicable to wine making than, beer brewing.
    1 Step no rinse sanitizer is a peroxide based sanitizer. In wine making, usually metabisulphite
    is added...
