    Five sours in. All 1.5+ years old before bottling. None ever used an airlock after primary
    fermentation. Used the toasted wooded dowel in a bung method. All are fine.We can speculate all
    day about wha...

    If this is a ~5 gallon batch this is like a ~9% ABV 130IBU beer. Will it be an IPA?, uh yeah,

    big arse IPA...

    a. A 40 watt light bulb will maintain a 100-110F temp in an insulated cooler/closed
    fermentation chamber, or even in the oven with just the internal oven light on. Wrap the pot in
    a towel to help insu...

    Next time I think I will give the lacto a heads start and then pitch the yeast so I can keep
    the wort at a higher temp.That's probably the quicker way to get it sour. It will still sour at
    a lower tem...
