If you liked the Lindeman's Gueuze, there are likely plenty of sours that you will like. That's a good gateway beer into the style and should prime you for some of what to expect in other sour beers....

I qualified for, and entered a beer into, the 2013 MCAB. I was underwhelmed by the feedback I got. Each criterion had a single line, 3 - 5 words of feedback, from both of the judges. It was the least...

Not saying you're going to end up loving them, but you should at least try a couple for yourself.

Craziness. Live a little.

That would be 600 ml of a 75% phosphoric acid solution to adjust pH. Phosphoric acid is a cost-effective way for commercial breweries to get correct mash and/or sparge pH, and has the benefit of not...

I would chime in as one vote for souring a portion of the stout. I've done two now, and I can't get enough of them. If you get the balance right, they're amazing. I've got 3 gallons or so left in the...

Yes, very familiar with brett and souring bacteria, and that brett doesn't make a beer sour. What we're referring to is the fact that the descriptions on the bottle (and the website) for Wytchmaker...

So, then yeah, I'm with Ted. Why put bacteria in there if the beer's not going to be sour? I was thoroughly annoyed with Mad Meg. Brought it to a New Year's Eve shindig wanting to share a sour that...

I didn't think Wytchmaker's label mentioned souring bacteria. I thought it was only brett, but I could be wrong. If you thought that was bitter, don't try Mad Meg. That was my problem with that one....

I just picked up some bottles in Denver a couple of weeks ago. I like Wytchmaker a lot, but was not impressed with Mad Meg. Maybe it gets better with age, but I did not like the bottle that I had.

My amusement is a little more basic than that. There are loads of chemicals in beer which aren't "additives", and those chemicals make the beer what it is. I'm pretty sure the last time I opened up a...
