I cracked the bung on this again today for a taste and gravity. I never formed a pellicle, so I
was afraid that it wasn't cooking right... I was wrong. It has dropped to 1.004 and tastes

It tastes sour and a touch funky with subtle notes of pineapple. The only reason I am getting
into the long aged funks is because of the smells coming off the fermenter from the grain. It

0. Adding new yeast and food would do nothing to kill off your infection. It would just
potentially make it worse, since the bacteria often times can outpace yeast.1. Absolutely2.

So my next beer is going to be something a little weird. I want to do a sour saison, but am

months and figure...

Ok, so my wild bugs have been chewing through gravity like Pac-Man chews through little white
dots. In two and a half months I've dropped from 1.018 to 1.008. The hydro sample tastes
phenomenal, too. ...

So all of the cottage-industry hop yards opening across New York and New England are growing an

I pulled a hydrometer sample today, and at a little over to months from finish of primary BM45
fermentation it has dropped 10 points to 1.008. It's lightly sour with subtle notes of
pineapples, funky ...

The BM45 had visibly wrapped up in 5 days, so I racked it onto the bugs one week ago at a
gravity of 1.018. The bugs got to work almost instantly, since it came from a continuously fed

Primary: Saison "Vomissure de Grenouille" (2nd Gen 3711 from dregs, Pale Ale malt, Crystals and Willamettes)
Secondary: BM45/Spontaneous Bugs Experiment (down to 1.004, and tastes awesome), contemplating what fruit to add.
