Yes, us05 dry yeast is good and inexpensive. I wouldn't add any bittering hops, but some fresh hops at 15 mins and flameout would add some flavor, aroma and a few ibus to make up for what was lost...

Ive made a berlinerweiss using a 48 hr sour mash and it was definitely tart.

These were totally different with no flavor impact. My theory is the hops, ABV, and yeast competition kept it at bay...

I appreciate the feedback and your perspective. I'm sure they were infected and I'm sure they tasted fine, maybe it is just the type of bug I got. Lacto? Not enough time to sour it? The pellicles...

I figure they didnt taste different because I cold crashed, kegged and drank them fairly quick. Chilling to low 30s really puts a damper on the bugs. If I bottled, that would have been 3 more weeks...

Yeah I just had my 3rd infection in 2 1/2 years, a pellicle is pretty obvious. There is a film and white bubbles with white debris and often white strands.

None of my infected batches tasted any...

Bottling Belgian Quad with Kriek

I think your overthinking it. Just put a bottle of Kriek in the bucket, add the priming sugar and rack the beer on it.

Yes, there must be a leak, the ABV shouldn't matter and it should be carbed by now.

Would you spend on kegging equipment or AG equipment?

I'd keg, you can continue to partial mash and BIAB w/o any additional equipment. I have a nice 3 tap keezer and still do partial mashes and BIAB AG half batches since I don't have room for more...

Looks like a solid DIPA. My only suggestions would have been to FWH the Simcoe for some flavor instead of 60 min and at least double the dry hop amount.

How do you measure mash temp?

My wife got me a Thermapen for Christmas, so I just stir the snot out of it and measure. I was using an inexpensive BBQ meat probe digital before that, it is within 1 deg of the Thermapen.

Yup, vacuum sealer. I got one as a gift and never used it until I got into brewing. Buy in bulk, seal and toss in the freezer.
