I don't know about you, but a lot of mine (at least with BF3) were *really* astringent until they got to around the 8-12 month mark, at which point most of them started getting really good with La...

Do you re-pitch any bugs every time you put a new batch in, or just go with what's resident in the wood?

I've done an Imperial Stout based off Madrugada Obscura. I used a 3rd generation slurry East Coast Yeast's Bugfarm3 (no longer available, he's on to the 5th version of the BF now) for souring after...

I also agree about La Roja. In general, Jolly Pumpkin is among my favorite US breweries, but La Roja is just not a good Flanders-inspired sour ale. In addition to the assessments above, it comes off...

Cool. That's about what I expected. Since I've owned Wild Brews for quite some time, I'm not necessarily looking for another brewing book on lambics. At this point experience is more valuable to me...

I've used it in 1.108 OG brews with no problems. I like the results of other blends better in strong dark ales like this though. I'd go with East Coast Yeast's Bugfarm, or a lambic blend of some sort.

I was given a few 2 year old packs of Lambic Blend & Roselare once. Out of curiosity I pitched them (and only them) into a 5 gallon batch. It actually still soured nicely. I certainly don't recommend...

I just bought it New off Amazon, so apparently. I'll try to remember to report back when it arrives. From what I've read they updated some of the brewery info for this latest addition.

Over the course of 20+ brett/sour brews, I've found that I generally prefer the flavor of brett developing in the bottle over giving it 6-12 months in the carboy. (This can depend somewhat on the...

Are you sure Splenda will not get broken up and digested over time by brett? I'm pretty sure a friend tried backsweetening a bretted cider once that ended up overcarbing in the bottle due to a...

Assuming you meant alternative, Wild Brews by Jeff Sparrow is a great homebrewing book on lambic, Flanders red/brown, etc.

The 60-minute and 90-minute IPAs are the only 2 of their beers, out of many, that I've actually liked. Thus, I'd say whether or not they are all expensive, they are definitely overpriced! :p

Rather than fermenting with use of a scoby, I would consider fermenting a small batch separately as kombucha, pasteurizing it, then blending. That way, you'll avoid a wort that gets more acetic over...
