  • Posted in thread: Lactobacillus fermentation temps on 11-21-2014 at 04:35 PM
    I ferment my lacto at ~100 in an oxygen deprived environment. I typically use brett and not
    sacc to finish ferm. I'd get it down to the ale temp you want, and pitch. Don't oxygenate.How
    much sourness ...

    Has anybody actually made what they deem a successful batch with either of these yet? Seems
    like people are a bit underwhelmed at the 2 month mark.

    Sounds like no Sacch was used. 100% Brett.::facepalm::Doh

    I have 3 different 100% Brett Trois beers in bottles from when Trois was a platinum strain, and
    all but one has developed a funky edge to them, specifically the 2 IPAs did but the Saison is
    clean as a...

    I'm going to try to rebrew this within the next couple of weeks. Their attenuation is pretty
    ridiculous, even with a low mash temp, unless you add corn sugar. I'm just going to use a more
    attenuative ...

    I haven't done this before, but just from a microbial standpoint, pitching more brett versus
    waiting for the existing brett to get funky doesn't lead to much of a difference unless the
    brett varieties...

    Yea, either the roasting in the oven or honestly just leaving them would probably be fine. How
    much does it call for?One thing that's great about wood and brewing sour beers is that wood is
    an excelle...

  • Posted in thread: How much coffee would you recommend for a Coffee Stout? on 11-12-2014 at 09:05 PM
    I take a French press and add 1oz of ground, low acid coffee to 12 fl oz of boiled, cooled
    water and let that sit in the fridge overnight the day before bottling. Then on bottling day, I
    press it and ...

    I think that sounds right. One other thing I would recommend to is to taste it periodically,
    especially for your first batch. It's really interesting to see how it changes over time. It's
    definitely a...

  • Posted in thread: My westy clone got something goin on on 11-11-2014 at 06:28 PM
    I'd imagine it's either brett or pedio -- my understanding is both can create a pellicle in the
    presence of oxygen.If this is taking place in a fermentor in which you previously had infected
    batches, ...
