I caught a wild yeast about 3-4 years ago as well.First batch I did with it was 5 gallons of
small beer. Figured I didn't wanna waste a brewing day, so went the small beer route from the
batch I was a...

If you don't already know all of this, this link shows the supposed sources of yeasts from
Wyeast and White Labs.I like the Duvel and Westmalle strains myself.

I just bottled a tripel, and was not impressed with the sample I took. Maybe will improve with
carbonation.Also not as attenuative as I had expected. Only took a 1.060 down to 1.006. Mashed
low and lo...

Glad to hear that you brewed this up.I'm a little surprised that the Brett is so dominant in
the aroma. I would have thought it would be very hefe-like for the first month or so until the

I've never seen a blowoff tube suck back into the beer after all these years of brewing. Might
happen if you leave it on and then cold crash the beer. Never tried that myself. These days I
don't have ...

What BrewinHooligan wrote. I would also argue that it's not necessary to mash low to get high
attenuation. This yeast will give high attenuation no matter the mash temp.

I had to take 7 years off when I lived in places where it wasn't possible to brew. And when my
son was born, I took a few months off. That time when babies are so young is pretty exhausting.

This is some good stuff. I'll trade out the WLP677 for the WLP655. From this thread I've
learned that Lacto is inhibited by high IBU's but what about Brett? I don't mind if it takes a
while to sour. T...

I have seen Brett produce diacetyl. Nothing like what you're writing about and not that set of
