Oops forgot to report back... I brewed this last December and recently bottled half the batch, overall I was satisfied with my first go-round. It's hugely tart but also gives off some nice aroma and...

Good point on growing them separate just to be safe. My initial plan was to let the JP ferment the batch by itself anyway, until the graverhopke piqued my curiosity. Maybe I'll start that one up...

Thanks for the feedback. So the issue of stepping up being that it'd throw off the balance of sacc to bugs? Guess I didn't think that through fully. Last time I played with JP dregs I combined with a...

Gaverhopke dregs

Ok so I've got a starter going from Jolly Pumpkin dregs, it's been going a little over a week and has a nice krausen going. I had planned to just step this up once and pitch it, but while out tonight...

what's that smell

So a few months back I had a bottle of Jolly Pumpkin La Roja staring at me and, having never forayed into the world of sour brewing, figured what the heck might as well start somewhere. The JP bottle...

Turned out quite deelish if I must say. If you crack the seeds (like you're supposed to) I would probably go like 0.5oz. Since coriander comes in 1oz packages from the LBS I figured I'd toss the...

Yeah I guess we'll see how it turns out, I'm not a big coriander fan myself but used .5oz before and found it was hardly detectable. I can see if coriander was the only spice and I was adding it in...

I've brewed this one which is a simple but solid recipe, was a big hit. If you're looking for a redder hue, maybe replace one of the Munichs with Carared. I believe this one was like a 26 SRM.

Yeah, in hindsight I probably could've stirred it around better and taken a couple more readings in different spots. Or at least, that's what I'll chalk it up to if it ends up fermenting down to the...

Yep, first infusion was 130 which settled right at 120F. Since you mentioned it, I did preheat the cooler a little longer than usual just because I got sidetracked with something, probably 20mins or...

first multi-step mash, overshot my target temp

I usually just do single infusions, but over the weekend was in the mood for a summer beer so I brewed a Belgian Wit. With the wheat in the grain bill figured I should try my hand at a beta/protein...

One more question. What's the idea there with secondary fermenting at 55 F or less? Got my hands on some JP and wanted to give this a go, but the best I could prob do is like 60-65 in my den

First AG batch -- two batch sparges?

So I'm ready to delve into my first AG batch, went with a pretty basic amber/red ale recipe. I've tried to digest as much as I could about batch sparging and this is what I came up with. Any pointers...

Sounds like a reasonable analogy. The wife loves sours but hates the smell of brewday, I'm hoping to microwave a steak just to keep her happy and not kick me out of the kitchen :) Thanks for the input

Any reason I couldn't use this Rodenbach GC recipe (http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f72/rodenbach-clone-224122/) and just do a sour mash and pitch with us-05? As opposed to aging with the roeselare....
