WLP410 used to be my favorite for wits, though Forbidden Fruit has been treating me right with great flavor, solid ferments, and quick starts. Might be my new favorite!

I don't treat my sparge RO water with the thought process being that I want it to be as unbuffered as possible so that the mash's pH will stay in the 5's while I sparge.

Nice - the Brewer's Friend gets me to an estimated 5.29 for yesterday's mash that measured 5.25, so it's definitely the closest of the three.

Thanks! This has been VERY helpful! I plugged in my numbers for the original sour PA, and it said my mash pH was probably 4.9@room temp - obviously a big problem.

I'll have to wait to brew again,...

I pitched two packets - my recipe has it listed wrong. My OG was 1.045, so pitch should have been fine. I'm going to try to find a beer judge in the Minneapolis area to give it a taste.
