Posted in thread: Catch-all thread to discuss brewing 100% brett beers. on 12-08-2013 at 03:21 PM
I made an all Brett L golden ale back in April. Built up starter for 7 days on stir plate.
There was an average take off time when I pitched- don't remember it being quick, but don't
remember it laggi...

Old hops- as long as they smell good, and were stored well- should be ok. But only for
bittering. Also, IBUs are LOW on this.o2 permeability- I don't think O2 (emphasis on think) is

I think cocoa can go very well with a Belgian- just the darker varieties. But you had a Belgian

Belgian GOLDEN ale and cacao nibs? Not too sure about that. I think The chocolate blends well
with "darker " beers- I.e. Stouts, porters, maybe even browns and dubbels- because the
sweetness or roaste...
Posted in thread: Oktoberfest taste like a Nut Brown Ale? on 09-16-2013 at 02:47 AM
