I used a 5 gal corny to sour wort a berliner style beer last summer and it worked great. I just released the pressure once or twice a day.

You lose a lot beer when you use whole leaf in the fermenter. They suck up a lot of liquid. That said, I've had better aroma when I dry hop with whole leaf, but I know this isn't true for everyone....

If you're referring to the WLP 644, while it's technically a Belgian strain (isolated from a Belgian beer), it's not a typical Belgian ale yeast. It won't produce huge phenols like the abbey strains...

I've been thinking about doing something similar. However, I was thinking of doing it even quicker than the 3 - 6 months you're talking about. My plan was to sour mash (or sour wort) for a few days...

Update?

I realize this is an old thread, but I was wondering if the automotive high temp silicone seal did the trick? I have the same gasket issue and had purchased some sealant rated to 700 F, but I want...

I wonder then if the difference is aerobic vs anaerobic (or at least 02 depleted) environments. I seem to remember reading somewhere that many Brett species produce more funky acids & esters under...

After some more reading, I agree. According to "The Yeasts, A Taxonomic Study" (Kurtzmen, Fell, & Boekhout, 2011), a number of Brett species can produce a pellicle under anaerobic conditions. I had...

Wow - that's quite the pellicle. I'd say it looks pretty normal, but indicates that there is plenty of oxygen in the carboy. There is quite a bit of head space, which could explain the O2. How...

True, there could have been acetobacter in the culture from 3F. In either case, excessive O2 ruined what could have been a great culture

With regard to your second question, I think you want the barrel as full as possible (completely full) so that the wood doesn't dry out. Dry wood = lots of O2 and leaks.
