I cracked the bung on this again today for a taste and gravity. I never formed a pellicle, so I was afraid that it wasn't cooking right... I was wrong. It has dropped to 1.004 and tastes incredible....

It tastes sour and a touch funky with subtle notes of pineapple. The only reason I am getting into the long aged funks is because of the smells coming off the fermenter from the grain. It smelled...

0. Adding new yeast and food would do nothing to kill off your infection. It would just potentially make it worse, since the bacteria often times can outpace yeast.

Sour Saison

So my next beer is going to be something a little weird. I want to do a sour saison, but am wondering what souring method I want to use. I want it to be a "quick" sour, so the usual methods of funk...

I'm not planning on touching it any sooner than appropriate, was just wondering if the fruit addition was more a gravity concern or one of age. I'll pull another gravity in another 2 months and...

Adding Fruit

Ok, so my wild bugs have been chewing through gravity like Pac-Man chews through little white dots. In two and a half months I've dropped from 1.018 to 1.008. The hydro sample tastes phenomenal, too....

I pulled a hydrometer sample today, and at a little over to months from finish of primary BM45 fermentation it has dropped 10 points to 1.008. It's lightly sour with subtle notes of pineapples, funky...

The BM45 had visibly wrapped up in 5 days, so I racked it onto the bugs one week ago at a gravity of 1.018. The bugs got to work almost instantly, since it came from a continuously fed starter...

How small is the bunghole? I use a small rubber bung that gits the grommet hole in a drilled bucket lid. I doubt it could be any smaller than that and have any function at all.

Rapid depressurization made it gush like that. Shake a bottle of beer and crack the cap, same effect. If it can breathe easy the whole time you don't quite get the same effect.

Never listen to anyone who uses a timetable to define when fermentation is done. It's done when it's done. Use a hydrometer and when you have stable readings for 2 days it's ready to bottle. Never...
