If you're "toasting" the entire volume of base malt, I'd be concerned you won't get any conversion. I agree that your roasted barley and black are way, way too high. Are you really only at 40 SRM...

Are you seeing any kind of a pellicle on top of these very sour beers? I can't imagine you'd have an acetobacter infection that bad without 1) a visible pellicle and 2) a lot of exposure to oxygen. A...

I used them unroasted in a stout and found them interesting, more fruity and vinous than chocolate. Toast em up if you want a more traditional chocolate flavor. If you don't like the way they taste...

I tried natto for the first time recently, in maki. I've always been curious about it. Hey, being vegetarian limits the weird foods I get to wonder about.

I never quite understand the objection to lifting the bag out of the wort. For a five gallon batch it weighs at most 30-35 lbs, which is quite easy to lift. I generally lift the bag out, then place...

Another newbie with a question

So the really ancient hops are definitely a problem... I would replace those with fresh hops immediately, if at all possible. But I don't see how they would be souring your beer if they're added...

It's 11 3/8" diameter and just shy of 24" high with airlock. I'm laid up with a stupid blown out knee, or I'd get out to a Lowes and measure! Was hoping to get two on the floor next to the hump....

Top of brew looks like a Petri dish

Lactobacillus is airborne, so more air means more spores. Plus if the beer is further down the tapered neck, it's exposing more surface area.

EDIT -- but yeah, not a *direct* cause, I guess.
