  • Posted in thread: Bottle sour beer from the keg? on 06-09-2016 at 07:26 PM
    I've been bottling beers off of my taps with a bowie bottler (not a blichmann beer gun) for a
    couple years now with no issues and perfect carbonation. I have a sour that is kegged and
    carb'd and I'm c...

  • Posted in thread: Bottling sour beers - priming yeast necessary? on 06-09-2016 at 07:22 PM
    You have the option to do either. Don't add fresh yeast and it has the potential to take longer
    to fully condition, potentially just as long or longer to meet the flavor profile you have now.
    Some bre...

    the Brett in t...

    I have used regular halloween pumpkins, but I believe you get better flavor from the elongated
    pinkish/tan butternut pumpkins.

    Reviving this thread. Is baking the pumpkin at 350 for an hour enough to sterilize it before
    throwing it in secondary? And is it actually worth doing to get the best flavor? Or is there a
    better meth...

    I'm intersted in others input as well on this. My take has been more fruity esters in higher
    fermentation temps, especially the belgian strain, not the french. But I wouldn't describe the
    esters as le...

    I would not rack again unless its to bottle. The fly is already in there so if there is a
    chance of infection you're already too late. By racking again you are risking unnecessary
    oxygen exposure and ...
