Decided to begin my first sour experiment after almost 3 years of making non-sour beer. Brewed
a Berliner Weiss and decided to kettle sour (or for me cooler sour to try and hold temp).
Pitched a strai...

Ok - as far as the water considerations go. I was watering fairly regularly (3-4 times a week)

Unrelated to the insect post (sorry for having two concurrent posts) I noticed some white dust
