It very well might be a strain of something known. I don't have the experience with liquid
yeast to say or not.I am going to hopefully bottle it this weekend. I may even get a corker and

Lambicus will go a little further and produce a more assertive brett flavor. I'm not sure if
clausenii will go amazingly or horrible with the peat. It has typical wet hay characteristics
mixed with pi...
Posted in thread: My BRY-97 vs. US-05 experiment on 09-04-2014 at 05:05 PM
I recently did an experiment with the 2 yeasts. Pretty much the same conclusion everyone else
reached. BRY-97 is good. US-05 just performs better. It depends on fermentation temperatures
for me. US-05...

That reminds me. I have a sweet stout barrel aging with a mix of souring bugs and multiple
brett strains. The last I tasted it was 3 months in. (It is now around 5 months) When I tried
it then it was ...

The type will factor in. I made a bretted up black IPA with clausenii in the secondary. I would

grassy. Not u...

New update. Tasted another sample last night. Most off flavors are tailing off. Fusel is still
there but, should work with age. Gravity is stable at 1.006. That is 87.7% attenuation. As a
recap, it st...

I would try them to see if they are even good. Probably stale by now. Especially, if it is
already crushed. If they are somehow fine, mystery beer it is. Your already paid for it so
aren't losing anyt...

Strange flavors is definitely the way I would describe it. Also, to clarify, I threw enough ice
on it to maintain it at 76F not to crash it in the middle of fermentation. The recommended
range for thi...

HDPE has very small pores. I doubt gluten can get through. Especially since it isn't a gas. It
can, however, hide in small scrapes and scratches. A thorough wash should be sufficient but, I
