As for damage mitigation, I do agree that Midwest could do a better job communicating, even if it is just to say: "Hey, we're still monitoring our systems. We still have not found any security...

I had fraudulent charges on my debit card with similar patterns--Walmart.com, Sears.com, Gamestop, gaming websites--during the same time period. I have never shopped online with Midwest. So that's...

Here's my experience with all the brewing I've done with Brett and bugs:

1) Brett is slow in the secondary but if the gravity readings are the same across two months, you should be good. If it is...

If you're interested in this idea, I'd definitely check out a Berliner Weisse. Mine is 70/30 pilsner/wheat, no boil. Not a single of the 12 score sheets I got from competitions, including NHC...

Competitions don't care about the age, just how tasty and close to style the beer is. That Flanders Red I entered was close to 2 years old but I've also entered beer that were less than a month old.

Thanks for the tidbit about the runner up best of show. I got my score sheets today and while I think the BW was legit, the Flander's Red was a bit of a gimme. Only 5 beers in the sour ale category...

Eh, no worries Matt. I stumbled across your rant after searching for March Mashness results and it gave me a healthy chuckle.

Do you get much conversion with water and grain mixed at 100F to give the lacto sugars to eat?

The process I'm describing is basically what Papizan, Jamil, and BYO is calling sour mashing, whether...

My sour mashing technique is pretty similar. I mash and sparge as normal than transfer back to my kettle. I pitch a couple ounces of grains and then put a layer of sanitized plastic wrap on the...

I think a sour mash + lacto is an interesting idea. Pure lacto strains are less complex than a sour mash because the sour mash introduces more bugs than just lacto, but are far more consistent and...

I do my sour mashes and lacto starters in the oven with just the light on. It keeps the temp around a 100. You can also turn it on for a minute or two a couple times a day to inject some more heat.

Not sour, more tart. As Almighty said, Brett doesn't really produce sour.

I'll also agree that with the 3711, adding Brett in the primary doesn't buy you much unless you're planning on funkifying...

I do a very similar beer in both the grain bill and the yeast selection (3711 + JP dregs). The 3711 is a beast but I always get a nice level of Brett tartness without any maltodextrin. Mine comes...

I've had pretty good luck getting sourness from sour mashing. The warmer you can keep it the faster the sourness will develop. I do my sour mashes in a 4 gallon stock pot. I mash as normal (or...

Tiber- did you sour the beer at all? How was the flavor? I chose the WY Brett L because everything I read said ended up fairly fruity.

Well I hope it actually finishes the ferment instead of gimping out after a couple of weeks.

First All Brett Beer

After lurking for a while, I decided to take the plunge and brew and all Brett beer. Now I have a few questions.

I went with a fairly simple recipe:
4.00# Maris Otter
3.00# Light DME
1.00#...
