You can absolutely get a beer that's as sour as a "legit" sour beer if you use a sour mash, and
regular sacch can ferment it out, it will just lag a bit. You won't get a traditional funky

Dry-hopping doesn't add bitterness. You could get a hop shot and squirt it in there. It is what
some super hoppy beers are bittered with (Pliny the younger) to help with loss due to hop
absorption. I ...

I'd get like 1.130 on my system. Regardless, I'd be shocked if you could dry this out more than

Whatever bugs that would be "in the air" from sour beer are already "in the air" from the

I have a very similar beer in a carboy right now. It was "sour worted" then got a huge pitch of
brett C. Gravity samples are tasting RAD, I reccommend you go for it.

I'm going to take the advice I've gotten from pro brewers and wait at least three months after
the malto addition and then bottle if I like it. The two I've gotten advice from have told me
not to expe...

Still not bottled and I'm tasting it every other week. The acetic quality is getting more
intense and it reeks of Brett goodness. I've gotten some tips from some highly regard pros and
they say go ahe...
