Posted in thread: Using Sourdough starter as yeast. Is it possible? on 06-07-2016 at 12:08 PM
Look forward to the tasting notes! My experience is that the lacto from the sourdough starter
will contribute very minimal if any sourness to the beer. I've done two sourdough beers so far
and they ha...

So. This is a little late now. But I have been playing with sour dough for 2 months now.
Recently I brewed a test batch with the yeast to see if it would taste good. Also, as a
disclaimer I started th...

Ok. So I just bottled a batch of beer, it's been sitting now for about 2 weeks at 65 degrees or

no I don't, and I live in norway, where it is difficult to find rubberbands in most

though, it's been going st...

I think I'm just going to separate it out and recombine it later on like a did with the oatmeal
stout before this. I'm going to work in a few hours and the last thing I want to come home to
