I pitched a bunch of slurry from a vienna lager into a sour-mashed (and then pasteurized) BW yesterday. There were concerns on here, as well as my own, about the PH, but today it's bubbling away, so...

I wouldn't worry too much about infection if fermentation takes off one way or another. Any kind of infection wouldn't stop the fermentation or kill yeast (except maybe some wine yeasts), so I would...

I would start by learning as much as you can about it. Try mixing a measured amount of it in a measured amount of water and take a gravity reading. That should give you basis on how much it will...

How about a hop tea for all of the water? I've heard that boiling hops in only water will result in hop flavor but little to no bitterness. It might be a way to bring an interesting new dimension to...

PH could definitely be a problem, but I wouldn't think it would be for lagers any more than ales, would it? I've only used lager yeast once (so far), so I'm no expert.
