    Kettle and mash tun? You don't need to worry about contaminating those. There's probably going
    to be something that gets into the wort during the 24 hour sour because mash tuns are covered
    in bacteria...

    I might suggest a mashout for this one to save some of the body to balance the acidity. I
    pitched pure lacto and still feel like I got some Parmesan aroma from the grain. Possibly
    because I didn't mas...

    Glad to hear it does well at low temps, what kind of beers did you all make? At those temps
    it's hardly a Cali common. Scharzbier sounds nice.

    How cold do YOU ferment 2112 yooper? I have a pack I'm about to use, was thinking of a smoked
    steam beer or an imitation doppelbock. What are your thoughts on playing around with this yeast
    and trying...

    I went ahead and kegged most of this without any fruit. I'm very pleased with the results! A
    bit of barnyard funk on the nose, nice tartness right up front that lingers for just a bit.
    Decent body as ...

    Here's my sour mash. I just completed the saccharification rest and added 11oz of acid malt.
    Gina let that sit while it cools and hit it with some CO2, lacto and wrap it up. Not sure if
    you can see th...

    Ok, thanks yooper I couldn't have asked for a more knowledgeable person to answer this. May I
    ask then, why is it that campden is used to prohibit bacterial growth on mead/wine musts?

  • Posted in thread: Lacto vs Campden on 04-23-2015 at 11:48 PM
    Will adding Campden tablet (very small piece) in my mash water have a negative effect on my
    lacto when doing a sour mash??

    I'm about to start my mash and was wondering if I should skip adding any Camden tablets to my
    tap water as I usually do. I did t want to interfere with the lacto in any way

    Ok, I'll heed your advice then. I have a 5gal cooler and it barely drops 1 deg F during a 60
    min mash. Any advice against leaving it outside during the day? It's topping out at 92F this
    weekend
