He meant the cup you are drinking from not the bottle might have soap on it, or was not cleaned
properly.I use the same glasses when I get them the beer from the keg.The only difference in
the bottle ...

It is possible you have soap residue in the glass you pour into.I don't use soap. Just hot
water to rise them well, then I dry them then before bottling I do starsan them, let most of it
drain out usi...

Alright. I mostly keg but when I brew belgians I bottled. I trully think it makes a huge
difference, the brew is better after ages a bit (or a lot more) in the bottles.However that's
not the reason I ...

reach 86F in 7-8da...

Get some stainless steel wire and wrap around the spiral. Make it long enough to leave a bit
out of your sealing mechanism and you can fish it out as you please. It could be used to
inoculate another ...

My concern about oak is that once I put the spiral in the keg (I use a 1/2 keg) I will not be
able to fish it out. If the solera goes for years I might actually never get it out till late
when I'd may...

I was planning to add 2 spirals - I have 13 galons, maybe I'd only add one. I might boil one
out and then add only the wood.

I'd say that's not too slow. It could take 9 mos to a year to fully attenuate. The oak can be
added in the last few months but I'm not sure you'd want to leave it in there. Transfer some to
