I've had a soured Scottish ale that was pretty awesome, and I've had a few good sour stouts. These were all commercially soured in barrels, FWIW.

I just noticed mine has a crack recently too. I emailed AHS to ask, and they advocated against any sort of direct heating. Basically using it just as a fermenter rather than a fermenter/pot combo...

Not sure how nano it is, but I have friends at a 1bbl brewery where everything is basically in a big garage. Until they built a mill box, they had to be really careful when they milled grain, because...

Sorry, wasn't trying to call you out on poor sanitation. There's a difference between sanitation and sterilization. There's always bugs around, and wort is a great growth medium for a lot of them....

Personally, I'd use a pressure cooker. There are bugs that can survive boiling temperatures, and they are some of the nasty ones. You're basically giving them a buffet with no competition. I wouldn't...

I forget where, but I've heard the same thing, but only when in the presence of oxygen (so no worries in your brewing).

The explanation I heard was that in the wild (say, on a piece of fruit) the...
