    Okay, so I tried the KY Common and I have to admit, it is turning a bit but I am still
    conflicted whether I like it or not. It has a complex nose now - hops and deep malt with a
    little vomit, but now ...

    12 deveined and deseeded habaneros (mine were pretty big- like a cup and a half) 12 habaneros,
    wow - how hot is that relish? I guess if you take the seeds out it will tame it a bit, but I
    would imagi...

    it's what i just used for a habenero sour relishThat sounds fantastic, do you mind sharing the
    recipe?

    Cool, that makes sense about the starters. I will try that for my next sour mah. I am actually
    buying the 5335 single strain Lacto for a Berliner next week as well, so I may keep a "stock
    strain" of p...

    I have read about consuming these beers young as well, but if it still smells like this after
    clearing it might have to turn into an accidental Oud Bruin... Of course I had to make a 10
    gal. batch.

    I just racked a Kentucky common to secondary and there seems to be some butyric acid presence
    in the nose, but the taste is relatively clean. I did a sour mash for 2 days at 90-120 F, and
    it smelled/t...

  • Posted in thread: Cilantro Beer?? on 03-20-2009 at 01:51 AM
    It's funny - last night I "dry-hopped" a belgian wit with cilantro in the glass. That is, I
    crushed some cilantro leaves and drew a beer on top of them. It complimented the beer
    tremendously well. A l...

    Wow, you guys weren't supposed to answer like that. I had just convinced myself that I wasn't
    crazy! I have some acreage that gets a lot of sun, and I tend to be overly-ambitious when it
    comes to beer...

    I was at a sustainable hop conference in December, and they found great results with white
    clover as a companion. FWIW
