Sexually? Yeah but not as much as I'd like to. These days I've been experimenting by making raw
ale, berliner weisse and no hops in the boil (hefty whirlpool additions).Sent from my iPod

The risk is that proteins are going to degrade/go bad, right? In a sour, you're relying on
'spoilage' microbes that are going to feast on those proteins and clean them out.I've heard

I think this is an awesome method for sour beers.I'm not so sure. Beyond kettle souring, I plan

my process:1: Collect 51L (for my high 2% session beers) of carbon filtered water the night
before, treat ...
