    Hate to bring up an old thread, but why add magnum so late in the boil? Not much in the flavor
    department, seems like a waste of AAUs.

    With all that honey, I'd think a touch of yeast nutrient would be beneficial (up available
    nitrogen and get yeast nice and happy), but I'd probably pitch a low attenuation sacc strain (I
    prefer wyeast...

    I brewed a cream ale with wlp080 that my brew partner kept at his apartment to condition. He

    Let it ride for a bit. I like my sours to take their time. That being said, I do prefer mixed
    fermentation because of the symbiotic nature of the bugs. Brett alone usually gets it pretty
    dry, but I fi...

    You'd have to weigh the stuff pretty precisely and cap quickly. It would be a logistical
    nightmare. Probably would be awesome for kegging, though.

    So I want to make a crazy as hell brew for next summer starting soon. Essentially I think I
    want to start with pediococcus and a few days later add brettanomyces to finish it up. I plan
    on doing my us...
