  • Probably same story as a lot of folks bitten by a radioactive spider. rnrnI got a homebrew beginners kit as a gift many moons ago, but never even opened the box until after 4-5 years. I finally figured it was time to give it a shot or chuck it. I used it, made good beer, now I'm a psychopath.

    I'd file this in the 'anyone who gives a definitive answer is full of crap' category. I'd guess
    it's more common with mixed fermentations as I feel that a fair bit of acetic acid is required
    in the fi...

    Is ethyl acetate more or less common in underpitched brett beers or mixed culture sour beers?

    I'm kind of going down this road as well. I use 1 leftover vial of trois & 1 lambicus. I was
    going to do boysenberrys. I brewed this past Saturday. Should I still get some commercial dregs
    or let it g...

    Gotcha, so add the fruit at the end? I thought you added the fruit early? I want it to be
    lightly fruity and more sour. I really want the color from the fruit more than anything.Yep,
    wait until the en...

    Hey guys,I planned on doing a fruit lambic soon. I was curious if after I do the fruit and let
    it set for a while should I transfer to another carboy to bulk age and let sour or bottle and
    let age/sou...

    Yesterday was my first brewday in a couple months. A buddy and I brewed up a pre-prohibition
    lager based on a historical recipe for an old DC brewery. Cereal mash of corn grits, 6 row and
    just a hint ...

    Just an update on mine... Tasted a small today. Sweet, chocolate, some oak/vanilla. Not as much
    of a whiskey flavor as I had hoped for. I'm hoping another month will perhaps improve this
    area. But, a ...
