  • Been interested for a while. A friend came up to me and wanted to offload his brewing equipment. I got it in the first week of June ('10) and brewed my first batch the second week of June. I wanted some customization ability with my very first batch, so I tried a pale ale all grain, currently fermenting as of June 14th, 2010.

    I'd like to see a small winery do something like this to their wine. Get a buggy barrel and get
    a merlot must in there. The woody character from the brett is surprising. Good experiment. Keep

    This particular wine yeast is a killer yeast. Brett will not survive the encounter. The bugs
    might but this is purely AFTER the brett/bugs have imparted their flavors.I've had saisons
    brewed with K1-V...

    What about light colored, high starting gravity wort with a commercial mix like a lacto and a
    dupont saison strain, then finishing the beer with wine yeast? The saison yeast would end up
    being killed ...

    Loving this project. Wish I could do something similar but sourcing barrels/brewers is kind of
    hard unless you know a guy.

    Finally got the control brewed up today as the final gallon of my single gallon batch
    experiment. The control is brewed with only the malt extract and hops. Eagerly awaiting the
    first tasting of the p...

    I just dont see what the problem is. Long lag has been shown to be normal with these strains.
    Mine took 3 days before anything did anything. Do a proofing/starter if you really need to get
    the mix act...

    Of course you could also add some DME to make a full strength sour brown. It wouldnt be a hard
    addition and it would add some malt for the bugs.

    3 out of 5 of the single gallons with adjuncts done. Flaked barley, flour, and flaked oats. So
    far, the most vigorous ferment has been the flour. Time to sit on them for at least 9 more
    months. Sent f...
