Posted in thread: Sourdough to make sour beer? on 07-01-2014 at 08:27 PM
The Wild Beer Co Sourdough tasted like a pretty normal Berliner Weisse to me. It was really
good, but I didn't get any cider character. I emailed them awhile back asking how they

Looks like normal yeast to me also.However, what's not normal is fermenting a Flanders Red with

How did you drill it? I am considering building something similar using an aluminum cake ring
(for easier drilling), but I know very little about drilling metal and what bits or techniques
to use. I'd...
