  • Posted in thread: Varietal honey and brett/bacteria question on 08-07-2014 at 03:12 PM
    I have vials of wlp645 brett C, wlp677 lacto, and wlp665 Flemish ale blend that I'd like to do
    meads with, but space and carboys are limited. I currently have a batch with wlp665 Belgian
    sour mix goin...

  • Posted in thread: Varietal honey and brett/bacteria question on 08-06-2014 at 04:30 PM
    Thanks for the replies. My thought was that if brett and bacteria can eat esters from other
    yeast, they could devour what contributes to honey taste/aroma as well. It had occurred to me
    that sour mead...

  • Posted in thread: Varietal honey and brett/bacteria question on 08-05-2014 at 04:01 PM
    I plan on making a few experimental meads with brett and bacteria. Will the brett/bacteria wipe
    out the flavor and smell from a varietal honey? I don't want to waste my good stuff (buckwheat
    & orange ...

  • Posted in thread: White labs lactobacillus questions on 06-09-2014 at 12:53 PM
    I guess it's just a matter of what works for you then? I asked, because I saw a thread some
    where (can't find it) that was very similar to dantheman13's reply. I was under the impression
    that this was...

    Thanks for the info. For the pre-boil souring, I plan to briefly boil, just to sterilize the
    wort, then sour, and boil again. For the Berliner, I'll either do the pre boil souring or a 15
    min boil and...

  • Posted in thread: White labs lactobacillus questions on 06-03-2014 at 04:28 PM
    This is the first time I'm attempting to use lacto (white labs), and have a few questions. I'm
    interested in doing some pre-boil souring and maybe a berliner with lacto pitched a day or so
    before the ...

  • Posted in thread: How much headspace is too much? on 04-13-2014 at 05:33 AM
    Thanks for all the information. What is an appropriate amount of head space? Most the pictures
    in the Pellicle Photo Collection have a good bit of empty head space. Also, if using fruit or
    juice, do y...

    My thinking is the same as Hresvelgr's, but I don't know if it is right. I've been reading that
    the bung seal is not totally air tight, and that's my concern.ABV should be around 5-6%. It was
    a bit of...

  • Posted in thread: How much headspace is too much? on 04-10-2014 at 05:45 PM
    I'm just getting into making wild brews and wanted to know how much headspace is too much? I
    have 4 gals of a braggot of sorts in a 6 gal carboy that I added brett C to about a week ago.
    My plan was t...

  • Posted in thread: Can using brett/sour bugs infect a room? on 03-31-2014 at 02:19 AM
    I'm venturing into the world of using brett and other bugs. I was wondering if by just using
    them, is there a chance I could infect an area of my house? I don't make a ton of beer, but I
    have a good b...
