  • Posted in thread: trub and angel share loss in barrel aging sour beer on 07-24-2013 at 10:31 PM
    My club filled a 60 gallon wine barrel 26 months ago with a lambic inspired base beer, and the
    time has finally come to empty it. We conducted primary fermentation outside of the barrel, but
    when we r...

    If you're brewing a cheap-ish session beer, I would just roll with your starter as is. But if
    you're doing a big, expensive, cellarable beer that you intend to enjoy over the course of
    several months ...

  • Posted in thread: Possible stuck fermentation????? Thoughts on 07-03-2013 at 09:01 AM
    This is totally normal. The beer is probably close to final gravity, but it could still take
    several days for the yeast to chew through the last few gravity points. You really never know
    for sure with...

    Was the barrel originally used for wine or bourbon? If it's bourbon, it might be very tricky to
    use for a sour project.My club acquired a 60 gallon white wine barrel that we did aged a
    lambic-esqe con...

    What yeast did you use? WL Beliner blend contains lacto, and WYeast's blend contains lacto and
    a brett strain. It might not hurt to run the wine thief through a high-heat dishwasher cycle.
    It may not ...

  • Posted in thread: lactose to feed lactic bacteria on 10-04-2012 at 04:40 PM
    Unless I'm mistaken, lactose can not be fermented - even by souring bacteria. The conventional
    wisdom is to use maltodextrin, which can be fermented by the souring critters but not by
    regular beer yea...

  • Posted in thread: Saison already at 1.002. Should I bother to add brett? on 06-04-2012 at 02:07 AM
    Brett develops character in beer from more than metabolism of sugar so I don't think you should
    not add it just because your gravity readings are very low. Much of what we perceive as "Brett

  • Posted in thread: brew in a bag question- Sparging? on 06-03-2012 at 04:54 AM
    I do a modified version of BIAB. I use a 5 gallon jug style cooler lined with a bag as a mash
    ton and just use a "normal" mash thickness of 1.25-1.5 qt/lb. After the mash is over, I lift
    the bag up, s...

    Oregon Fruit produces 3 different cherry products. The information they sent you was for their
    Royal Anne Cherries... you don't want to use that blend. You want to use their Montmorency pie

    How does a club sign up to pour their beer for club night? I looked through the AHA website
    forever but couldn't find that info. an email address in the middle of the page. I'd email
    them ASAP and cr...
