    Going to have another bottle of my over hopped batch today, the last two bottles had a nice
    tartness,but not really sour. After about 2 months I think it is time to pull the second batch
    off its yeast...

    I've run into carbonation issues with blending sours with clean beers (duh). I now prefer to
    blend in a fermenter first, allow for the additional fermentation to occur, then bottle the
    beer.How much d...

    I used the Brevis in a sour wort Berliner Weisse just a few weeks ago. I let my starter go for
    over a week and it was super tart when it was finished. It soured my wort in 3 days and I have

    to the keg. Good to know about the Brett. I may use that trick in the future.

    Just got home with the recipe. After talking it over with my wife I decided to take out the

    chocolate whe...
