    Thanks for the reply, Zippox. With only the 655, does it still have a strong initial
    fermentation (that blend does include sacc, as well as brett, lacto and pedio), with a big
    krausen that eventually ...

    I believe you will want to do "E) pitch only the 655 into the bucket for primary, then rack off
    trub to BB for extended aging". That's at least what I did and what this recipe does and many
    others hav...

    I plan on bottling at 2.5 volumes. You bottled at 1.5. I assume this is all a preference thing
    but are there any arguments for/against either volume?

    Picking up some EC-1118 Champagne yeast, corn sugar and some oxygen absorbing bottle caps.
    Going to get 10 gallons of this recipe I brewed back in March of 2013 in some bottles!This
    thing better be wo...

    If I were to make 10 gallons of this, how many packets of Salfale US-04 should I use? (Keeping
    in mind that yeast starters for dry yeast aren't necessary so I would use the packet
    directly/or rehydrat...

    Buckets introduce far too much oxygen for that length of time, I get that. But if it's in a
    good carboy, I would think that would be totally fine and you would get just enough. I would
    think... :)If I...

    Traditional lambics are not racked, they sit in the same vessel for the duration. That's why I
    askYou know what, now that I think more about it I remember why it was suggested from this
    recipe to rack...

    Do you really need to rack it? It's not necessary is it? I was thinking of just keeping both
    carboys as is from the beginning..... but if there is a reason why I should rack it to a
    secondary... then....

  • Posted in thread: Airlock dried up at 1.5yrs in on 10-06-2014 at 09:16 PM
    I made AmandaK's lambic recipe a long time back and I forgot about the airlock and it was dry
    for probably 4 weeks at the 1.5 year mark. It has a strong pellicle and I have never opened the
    carboy. Th...

    The airlock in one of my 5 gallon carboys (of a 10 gallon batch) dried up for a month. The
    lambic is over 1.5 years old. Think the pellicle and CO2 bed will be it's savior from
    oxygenation?
