Posted in thread: Pitch onto 4 month old ECY20 cake? OR pitch slurry? on 04-14-2015 at 06:21 PM
Yea dont bother washing, just rack the beer and pour off the slurry into the next batch. I dont
like pitching directly onto cakes though, youre way over pitching, just pitch a measured amount

Not really sure what Vrai is going to be like, most of us think it could be similar to BSI's
strain Brett Drie, which we all thought was the same as Trois originally so who knows. I will
be trying it ...

I'm confused then. Is Trois Vrai going to be actual Brett and WLP644 is going to be renamed
some sort of Sacc?Exactly.

Wow, blast from the past. I actually still have some bottles of this from when I posted back in

I havent seen a reason to push the Wallonian over 76F so far, Ive been getting dry beers with
complex yeast character in the low to mid 70s. I recently fermented out a 1.045 Saison to 1.002
with a 68F...

I would just add a strain of Brett, or a blend, into secondary and let the Brett chew through
the remaining sugars until its finished. You will likely see light activity in the fermenter,

There are a bunch of events like that in the area, so it can definitely be done. So long as you

Quick question about IBU's. When I plug my numbers into Brewtoad for a 6 gallon batch, I'm
getting 42 IBU's with 0.6 oz of 17.5%AA Columbus at 60 minutes. Why is the original recipe
getting 47 IBU's w...

Great notes there. I'll be using 1318 shortly on this beer as well, heard from a good source
that its what TH uses and your experiences support that.I have always used Pale Malt on this
beer, I always...
