Well, first time using BIAB to save time on a double brew day resulted in a hugely inefficient
batch. Ended with something like a tafelbier, 1.022 to 1.004 with 3711. Dry and lemony, and
suitable for ...

Since you have an idea for what you want, rather than a style you are targeting, I have a few
ideas you might consider.I think you might consider changing from witbier to weizen yeast.

Thanks for the advice. I guess wit is mislabeling, but I'm shooting for a spicy, low alcohol,
wheat heavy ale. I do plan on using rice hulls, and possibly BIAB to avoid the stuck sparge. I

I usually add a small amount of champagne yeast at bottling (like 1/4 sachet per 5 gallons) to

I'd suggest doing at least one variation with oenococcus in place of the LAB. I've had very
pleasant results from Wyeast 3068 and oenococcus fermented cider, and a shorter time frame than
you would ex...

Thanks for the information! We mashed around 156 and the long boil reduced our volume by about

I pitched Wyeast brett L into an imperial stout that was first fermented with US-05 from 1.122
to 1.042. How far should I expect the brett to attenuate? I've read that it will go to 90%, and

Which brett strain is in the old ale blend? I have a 1.122 RIS that stopped at 1.042, and I'm
