You aren't going to get a very balanced response asking on a board dedicated to sours. The ones that answer no to your question probably gravitate away from this board and will not see your question....

I ferment in a freezer. I decided on this because it took up less space, was easier to find for cheap on Craigslist and allowed me to ferment two 6.5gallon carboys within it. I tape the temp probe to...

Do you fine your beers? I have been using Biofine Clear with good results with a wide variety of yeasts. I'm going to add it to the keg for this one as well. I'll report back.

The fuller carboy seems to have finished it's ferment. The gravity now sits at 1.004. So the apparent attenuation is 94%. That's pretty darn dry and I'm also happy with how the hydrometer sample...

Well, I'm still waiting on it. It's sitting in my temp controlled freezer at 82 degs right now. It's been 22 days since I brewed and the airlock is still bubbling about every 30 secs and there's a...

Weak ferment with WLP570

I'm curious about people's experience with WLP570. I did my first Belgian Golden Strong recently and am disappointed in the extent of attenuation I've acheived so far. This is my first time using...

I use biofine clear in the keg. Biofine Clear is a clarifier made from SiO2, and is added to precipitate yeast and other haze-causing particles. Biofine is a vegan product.

My typical regime is...

To close this thread out I thought I'd give some feedback.

The WLP400 finished at 1.009 and the WY3726 finished at 1.007. I pulled the saison yeast carboy out of the temp controlled freezer that...

Whole foods in Cool Springs had it about a month ago. I can't verify if that's still true since I haven't been there in a while.

Just to close the loop on this thread. I let my WL670 age for 90 days at ambient room temps and then bottled it. It turned out great and I'm really happy with the complexity and added depth the Brett...

Any reason why? You could also harvest some dregs from a beer with Brett in it like Orval.

I'm not saying that exactly. Perhaps some bitterness would help. It's just not my thing and I'm not quite sure what I'd say would make it great. I've got a 100% Brett beer of my own I'm not very...

I've recently had both of these beers. I can't say I'm a fan of either. They are interesting to taste and I'm glad I tried them, but I certainly will not be buying them again any time soon. I could...

I'm taking mine a little higher than that, more like lower to mid 80s in the garage. Perhaps it will highlight the differences between the two beers. It's my first time using this yeast so I'm not...

Well I hope they both turn out well. I'm varying the fermentation regimen with them. I pitched both at 67F and kept them both at 68F for 48 hours. I then pulled the 3726 carboy out and put it at...

Brett character when added at bottling

I have a 5 gallon batch of saison fermenting now that I pitched WY3726

I wish it was just a chill haze. I let it warm up to room temp, but it's still pretty cloudy. The beer was dry hopped lightly (1oz for a 5G batch) and I know that can cause a haze along with other...
