    Handwrought, welcome to the community and the wonderful hobby of homebrewing. Your question is
    not absurd by any means, as homebrewing is all about experimentation. I myself love to brew
    both sour/fun...

    I do not believe those are Perlicks. Not sure what I'd offer the guy, looks pretty dirty to me.

    I got my SS Brew Tech conical a couple years ago and it does not have a weldless thermowell, in

    I've got TYB's Saison/Brett sitting in the fridge, and currently fermenting a IPA with their
    Vermont Ale yeast strain. The fruitiness coming out of airlock is amazing. I actually did a
    split batch wit...

    I'm tasting it now and I am a little worried. It has a slight smell of mustyness and maybe,
