I brewed this recipe up yesterday. I loosely based it on bobbrews recipe. I know it's a bit
over the top, but hopefully it's not too over the top. I used Conan yeast because I want to use
it in my nex...
Posted in thread: Souring a Saison - 1st Time With Sours on 06-23-2015 at 02:33 AM
You won't get very sour with Brett alone, if at all. If you want 25 ibu, try to find a
commercial sour beer with 25 ibu and try to harvest that. I've soured a 35 ibu beer with jester

about 2-3 bottles, and that stuff took off like a rocket on my stir plate. Soured the hell
outta some beers...

I'd probably avoid this. River sediment also contains lots of heavy metals and other
pollutants. Hydrocarbons and lots of nasty junk, depending on your location.

I'm drinking my first saison with 3724, the dupont stain. Brewed on 4/3, so it's taken what,
about 9 weeks? This strain just takes time and heat. It sat at 90 fir about a month. Put it in

Thanks. Let me rephrase my starter question. How do you calculate how big of a starter you need
