I have an all-brett beer that's been sitting for about six months in 2ndary. It's pretty close to bottling time.

Secondary with Brett question

Last night I racked a black saison into secondary, pitched Brett Lambicus, added oak, and some of my favorite dregs. I thought I had three gallons of beer, but in actuality only had two (don't ask...

Pitching dregs into secondary

I'm curious if anyone has had success in pitching the dregs from various sours, lambics, wild ales, etc into secondary. I'm thinking about pitching some into a dark saison that's about 7%abv. Would...

Culturing Wild Yeast

I thought I'd try to culture some yeast off my apple tree in the front yard. It's been four days and I see no yeast activity. I'm curious what I may have done wrong or if I need to just wait longer....

How pervasive is Brett?

I brewed up a Petite Saison which finished fermenting yesterday. Before I threw it in the keg, I pulled aside one gallon and pitched some brett on top of it. I plan on letting it sit in this nasty...

Mashing Acid Malt?

If I'm going to be using some Acid Malt in an upcoming all-grain recipe (about 5%), can I mash it as normal? I seem to recall I'm not supposed to, but now I can't find any sources that say otherwise.

pH meter

Anyone have a favorite pH meter? With my Gose brewday coming up, I realize I need to pick one up.

I saw this one on amazon, and it was cheap. Anyone have any luck (or problems) with it?

Lactic Acid

More questions on the Gose I'm going to be brewing.

On p. 159 of "Brewing with Wheat," a recipe is given suggesting adding Lactic Acid at the boil. This will be the first time I'm working with...

What did you decide? A little carapils might be nice, but looking at your recipe, I don't really think it's going to be necessary.

Are you using your boiled down maple sap for *all* of your water?...

I actually plan on pulling aside one gallon of the finished beer and add some brett in secondary.

maple ?

Do maple additions to the boil tend to dry the beer or make it sweeter? In other words, does maple function like table sugar?
