    Less oak sat for longer gives a better overall flavor than more oak sat for less time. I'm not
    sure about the 0.25-0.5 oz deal as it often comes down to taste and time in the wort but I plan
    on puttin...

    I've never reused any wyeast except for Roeselare but I would be comfortable reusing it. The
    only issue is it's a mixed yeast so the ratio of lacto, Sach, and Brett will go out of whack
    eventually. I'...

    My opinion is that you should keep it on the yeast cake because:A) 1st generation Roeselare is
    notorious for being weak.B) Keeping it on the yeast cake increases the sourness which is wanted
    with a 1s...

    Good to know about the Monks Cafe. I read a few posts stating otherwise but you're right it's
    listed in the mad fermentationists bottle list of viable dregs. My bad.

    Assuming this is your first try I would just do the 1 oz of Columbus. Bad mistake by the LHBS
    though so I feel your pain. I'll be brewing this one myself in a week and am going 100% off the
    recipe as ...

    29th floor what flavors are you getting in your Berliner Weiss?I brewed mine 45 days or so ago
    with the raw grain method dropped into wort for a 3 day head start and then finished with
    WLP001. It's a ...

    Also I'm almost positive Monks Cafe is pasteurized. I'd use different dregs next time. Everyone
    raves about the JP dregs being super quick though so I'm a little surprised you have no
    sourness yet. It...

    Good to hear, Berliner Weisses are homebrewer's favorite beer after the first time you do it
    because you can't believe how easy it is. There are commercial ones available but it's hard to
    find and I d...

    I'd love to but will have to pass I'm just getting into the sours and have just made my first
    batch. I think it'd be more stealing on my part than trading.
