    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
    incredible. T...

    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
    smelled butt...

    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.
    Absolutely, but just...

    So my next beer is going to be something a little weird. I want to do a sour saison, but am
    wondering what souring method I want to use. I want it to be a "quick" sour, so the usual
    methods of funk ar...

    You need to mill your grains first, don't forget. Find someplace to buy a corona style mill
    locally, or buy one online. Make a cooler mash tun, there are plans available all over. Then
    you'll need to ...

    I'm not planning on touching it any sooner than appropriate, was just wondering if the fruit
    addition was more a gravity concern or one of age. I'll pull another gravity in another 2
    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. ...

  • Posted in thread: Too many whole-cone hops? on 03-30-2012 at 02:27 AM
    So all of the cottage-industry hop yards opening across New York and New England are growing an
    inferior product compared to the mega farms of the Pacific Northwest? Like all things that one
    tends to ...

    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 ...

  • Posted in thread: First Funk, thoughts? on 02-08-2012 at 07:58 AM
    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
    starter essenti...

On Deck: Saison "Jardin d'été" (3rd Gen 3711, Wild bugs, Pale ale malt, wheat, Willamette dry hop) 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.
