    Having VERY sour beer is a great blending tool, as long as it's not overly acetic (and even
    then, in small quantities, it's useful).In general, I think of the acid beer is the blender,
    and another, mo...

    As I see it, as long as you have beer ready, you have three options.1- simply rack the next
    beer in.this maximizes the amount of micro flora you're bringing over into batch 2. Given that

    Did anyone else get awful quality Simcoe Leaf hops from YVH this year? I ordered them in
    December (2014 harvest) and they are brownish and do not smell like Simcoe. I'm guessing these
