Like I said, the most efficient use of your time would be to do a sour mash then to pitch the wlp630 after the boil. It would achieve exactly as to what I understand to be what your searching for but...

What are you trying to accomplish with this? I feel like your doing a lot of extra work than you need to. You'll be pitching the lacto just to kill it off 2-3 days later just to reintroduce it, as...

While I don't advocate the ability to purchase a bottle on the condition that you also purchase a 6pk (which yes is illegal), I don't think that the general public realizes that that is how it works...

They discontinued the 4pks and opted to make them part of their 22oz rotational line, so you should be able to track down some of those

Keep in mind that having not boiled the wort means chances are whatever wild yeast you may have propagated here is more than likely going to be "tainted" with lactobacillus seeing as it is naturally...

Did you forget to include hops? Or miss calculate the IBUs? I know you specified this was just the grain bill, but without that included thats the first thing that comes to my mind. Not enough...

What makes you believe it will help cool things any quicker? The rock salt will just alter the water's freezing and boiling points. 50 degree water will cool with the same effectiveness and speed as...

Are you sure the F.G. is actually 1.012? It looks like in the picture you posted you are taking a gravity reading of a fully carbonated beer. All that co2 in solution is sure to effect your readings

You could always look into adding some amylase enzyme to it to convert those complex sugars if mashing too high was your culprit. Never done it myself, and have heard mixed reviews on using it. Not...

Well I've been planing on doing my first mead soon, and like most others plan on doing Joe's Ancient Orange Mead as my first. It strictly uses bread yeast, which is why it's supposedly a sweet mead,...

If your only going to be sticking around the 9-10% area max, I wouldn't think pitching in stages would do much. It's low enough in alcohol that most yeast will chew through all the sugars no...

To be honest, I don't know how good something like that would taste. I would assume it would taste like a watered down beer with low abv.

I've thought about this subject in the past, but seeing as...

Now I have zero clue how this would change the final product, but you said you wanted it dry and alcohol free. What about fermenting out a cider as you normally would, and then just "burning off" the...
