Hi, it's been a while since I brewed this one but if I remember correctly it turned out pretty
good. If I could do it again I think I'd increase the amount of victory to 1lb or else lower
the other sp...

Generally I would trust your pyrex jar because the fridge must have been calibrated at some
time and so might have fallen out of calibration over time, the mark on the jar is not going to

Update: Transferred today from primary bucket to secondary 6.5 gal carboy with 9lbs of frozen
raspberries. Gravity was 1.020 as I transferred to secondary, ideally I would have let this sit

Ok, here goes:Before this brew I have zero experience with sour mashing so if the experts

Update:I let this sour for 15 hours, it had a great flavor and smell, kind of like a sour apple

I ran out...

That's ok, I'm not trying to get an exact clone, I think Lindemans is too sweet. What I really
want is a sour and dry framboise that hopefully has a little residual sweetness. I have no idea
if I will...

Quick update:I mashed using 8 lbs of 2-row, 2 lbs of white wheat, 1 lb of C-60, 2 oz of honey
malt, and 1 oz of black patent. I dropped the roasted barley. Mash temp was 149° although it

I am going to try and start the mash a little earlier today and let it go for at least 18 hours
before I boil. Are there any thoughts on the roasted barley, black patent, and honey malt? Let
me know w...

Hmm, a sour starter, I wish I had thought of that 2 or 3 days ago! From my limited exposure to
sours I like what I've tried so far, and so does SWMBO (go figure!) so I will definitely be
making more. ...
