Anyone ever have any trouble souring due the the buffering capacity of their water? I brew
using tap water (I know, I know) and it comes out at about 8.5PH and +20KH. I know that the
mash should lower...

What's your recipe ja09? It looks quite a bit darker than most BWs. Just curious.

BTW: Don't waste your time watching the whole video, you get the idea after a couple of steps,

I pitched a bunch of slurry from a vienna lager into a sour-mashed (and then pasteurized) BW

I would start by learning as much as you can about it. Try mixing a measured amount of it in a

How about a hop tea for all of the water? I've heard that boiling hops in only water will
result in hop flavor but little to no bitterness. It might be a way to bring an interesting new
dimension to A...

I just made a Vienna-ish lager with s-23. I fermented right around 60 and it is super clean. I
was a little nervous to use this yeast after doing some reading, but most who reported super
