    I signed up for the classes in Santa Rosa and am really looking forward to it. I'm in your

    Vinnie's hopping tec...

    Cheers! The Sour Beer session just sold out for Burlington, but room still available for Santa

    @oldsockCare to comment how your sour is coming along with this yeast strain? Picking up any
    plastic/phenolic off-flavors? Also, any notable differences between this and the Brett Drie
    you've used in ...

    I've had some 688 kicking around for a couple months. Pitched it for bottle conditioning in a
