Yeah, I might do the same. I bought a bunch of them cheap to use with sours and I'm not pleased
with them. I'm not concerned with the temperature because I can wait for it to sour. No rush.
If the hop...

My Melange smells awesome but isn't the slightest bit tart. I brewed it in August and it's been
between 60 and 70 the whole time. I used 4oz of debittered hops in the boil, so I wonder if
that's the i...

From a perspective of potential infection of the wort by unwanted organisms, that's true.
However, without a rigorous boil you're not driving off things like DMS, which can lend a
pretty foul aroma. H...

I ran it directly into a bucket and then used a heat stick to heat the wort to 180 for ten

so far. I ha...

I had trouble with White Labs Brevis souring. I've used Wyeast's De Bom, which I believe has
Brevis in it, and that soured fine. I can't figure out what the deal is.

you are clearly more risk-tolerant that i am - i'd be nervous fermenting anything with that
little headspace. was/is a blowoff tube needed?Nope, not at all. Usually I use Fermcap so I
don't worry abou...
