Also, get your ph down before you pitch grain (lacto). I believe 4.8 is the happy spot for
lacto. And, +1 for kettle souring. That 5 week number is no joke. I suggest letting it hang in
the bottle for...

The author of Farmhouse Ales also suggests those temps for 3724. And DuPont uses those temps as

this by fermen...

Awesome! Glad you liked it. There is very little working info on this yeast so I'm glad we're
able to play a part in it.I started mine in the mid 50's (55) ramped up and it no hovering at
60 and I'm g...

Old Newark Beer yeast acts quite odd. I propped up a starter from an older vial and it went
