    Brewing a belgian pale with the Wyeast Lambic Blend. Then, for National Homebrew Day 2013,

    Skip th 122 rest. It's unnecessary and can be detrimental.Just curious, why is it possibly

    2.1 gallons ...

    Bottled today with the stopper and everything. I filled and capped one bottle and left it in

    So I want to brew a belgian pale and sour it over the next couple years. I also wanted to
    attempt to mash it using a flemish sour multi step mash schedule. Here's what I've found so
    far:11 lbs. total ...
