I think for NJ it's a toss up between Maloney's or Cloverleaf. There are classic places like
Andy's and Shepard & the Knuckle Head but they have a very limited space without food and a
small tap list.

Without a warmer temp, it will take longer for sourness to be present. Can you test the pH?One
thing I'm starting to do is collect and pour dregs from some Berliners I've had. Maybe if you

Airlock activity is not 100% representative of fermentation activity, especially with some
bacteria. Give it time. Keep a slightly Warner temp for another day. If you're SOL on more
yeast maybe make a...

Update: beer has now had fruit for about a week and is going to get cold crashed for almost

less. With this c...

What is a "good" pH level for a berliner weisse? Im going to get some wine strips today and
test it out.

I'm just going off the idea of sour mashing at 110 or whatever it's suppose to be. Why not
ferment at that if possible? I think OldSock should try it while in San Diego, it's hot enough
there and he's...

But what if I only have lacto in my primary? Then I won't have off flavors, right?

If sour mashing is done at such a high temp, why isn't fermentation done at the same level??

I can't think of a good reason to add hops to a Berliner weisse as a homebrewer (to get label
approval, commercial "beers" have to have hops). As was said the primary "preservative" power
of hops is t...
