I bottled a 13-month old Kriek last month and added half a pack of S-05. It carbed perfectly and timely (I let it sit 2 weeks at room temp).

Yay - still aerate after pitching like usual. Like the previous poster noted, the sour mix has sacc and Brett and needs oxygen for normal primary fermentation like usual. I just brewed a batch with...

Yeah, swirl the hell out of it as often as possible, no need to be gentle. You'll see normal krausen signs eventually (you'll swirl it and it will suds up like you're swirling a carbonated drink). ...

It's possible, or just added sediment from your starter liquid. Is this on a stir plate and/or are you aerating it somehow regularly (giving it a shake/stir somewhat often)? In my experience some...

100% Brett commercial beers are tricky to come by in my experience, although I know Mikkeller has a 100% Brett B. out right now as part of their yeast series, look for that if your local shop has a...

La Folie

New Belgium's 2013 La Folie came out last week - that's a mighty fine beer, grab some while you can. Just saying.

Any signs of fermentation or active yeast in that jar? Looks like you're getting mold on top, you might want to skim off those white/green/gray fluffy spots or scrap the whole thing and start fresh.

Raspberry and rose hips, sounds tasty to me, I'm curious how this comes out. I think a full pound of maltodextrin is way too much though, I'd halve that at least (unless you've used that much before...

Quite a bit really, standard 5-gallon batch so there's probably a good 5 inches of headspace in the bucket. This is also an older Ale Pale, so its been around the block, but when I opened it today...

Or maybe I could dry hop the non-sour portion to bring it closer to style, that would give me the best of both worlds? Sorry just thought of that idea. I've never dry hopped before so I'll read...

Ok good. I knew I'd be ok on the sour portion, and it sounds like being in the 9-12 range on IBUs (what I anticipate) should be fine for the non-sour 1 gallon I pull off of it (since that is just...

I just don't want the IBUs to inhibit the lactobacillus or any of the other bugs that will be in the kriek portion, which is why I dropped them to about 10. I'll be using Palisade hops, which I've...

That makes sense to me. Just this week I ran out of DME and wanted to step up a Brett starter I have going. I used my maltodextrin instead and it's chugging away. Unless there's some reason I'm...

Well, that's not mold, it's a protective pellicle layer covering the surface produced by the bacteria/yeast. So when he siphons the beer out from below it, a pinch may come with but it doesnt really...

So start to finish in under 2 months? I think if you want the said intricacies of a lacto culture you probably need to give it 6-12 months to cycle. At least based on the charts I've seen. A sour...
