    I brewed 10 gallons of saison, split the wort into two clean and sanitized carboys, and
    fermented one with white labs saison III and the other with Gigayeast saison #1. Both fermented
    in the low 70s t...

  • Posted in thread: Funky beer lover correlation to mushroom lovers? on 02-11-2015 at 05:30 PM
    I think the relationship is not as far fetched as the replies here suggest. After all, yeast is
    a fungus and a lot of wild/sour/funky beers have musty, earthy, and savory flavors in common
    with the ed...

  • Posted in thread: Can White Labs brett c ferment lactose? on 01-30-2015 at 03:49 PM
    Does anyone have experience with WLP brett c in a beer with lactose? According to some papers

    anecdotes ...

    I agree that Tart of Darkness was sort of one dimensional and not very dark tasting. I'd reduce

    you are pi...

    We have done several batches on grapes that turned out great. We used about 2 lbs/gallon for 3
    months before bottling. I thought the tannins were complementary.Sent from my iPhone using Home

    After a few weeks in the bottle, this turned out quite nice. Fruity hops backed with a mild
    peppery flavor, dry but with nice mouthfeel. Still seems pretty reserved compared to the saison
    yeasts I've ...

    I primed the brett half the same as the clean half, to about 2.7 vol, without accounting for
    any further attenuation. I bottled these in sturdy 500 ml bottles though, so I'm not
    concerned.I mashed at ...
