No spices, other than possible some spiced tea, which I'll add at flameout and steep for 10 minutes. I also appreciate the advice on the hops. I'm still torn on whether or not I want to remove them...

I don't really care too much about the actual style, so I guess more of the latter (good brew for winter). However, it does fit the BJCP WW style guidelines. I want it to be ready for this Christmas,...

Thanks for the input, guys. How would you feel about 5 packs in a 5L starter instead? Still severely underpitching, or a little more realistic? Obviously, I'm somewhat out of my comfort zone here, ha...

Pitching rate for 1bbl saison?

If I'm brewing a 1bbl batch of a light saison (around 1.045 OG), the "proper" pitching rate would be over 1 trillion cells. Really though, how should I approach this if just using Wyeast packs from...

Thanks! By the way, the weather should be getting mild soon. Almost time to experiment with some Florida wild ales!

Here's what I ended up doing, which leads to another question (if you couldn't tell already, I'm new to brewing "wild" beers):

The leftover wort was 1.020, so I added a pound each of wheat DME and...

The wort came from the final runnings of a larger brew session, which produced another 5 gallons of low-moderate OG wort (I'll measure it tomorrow when I pitch the yeast). I didn't brew this beer, so...

Using Roselaire in high-IBU wort

I've come across some leftover wort from an IPA batch and I have a spare pack of Roselaire blend in the fridge. I'd like to just pitch it into the IPA wort and forget about it for a while, but would...

I ended up talking with a couple very knowledgable folks who suggested I wait until the weather cools down. Fivepoundpossum pretty much summed up the conclusion I came to in his post. When it gets...

This is an interesting option. Would pasteurizing the fermented batch burn off the alcohol in solution? If not, will the alcohol already present inhibit fermentation from wild yeasts? As far as the...

I'm actually going to make some wort today to try and harvest some yeast in my backyard. I have a lot of banana trees, so who knows what will happen?

No, the flask was used to rehydrate the S-04 that was used in the large batch. There was a full gallon of good wort left over after transferring to the fermenter, so the flask was cleaned, filled...

Sure, I know it will take right off if I add the wort to the fermenting beer, but my original goal was to ferment this with local wild yeasts, rather than saccharomyces alone. If I add it the wort...

Spontaneous fermentation experiment gone "wrong." Now what?

I've never brewed any sour beers, and I had no plans to for the immediate future, but last weekend (4 days ago) I brewed a 1bbl batch of a session IPA and ended up with 1 gallon of wort afterward. My...

First attempt at designing an American Brown

I've decided to have a go at designing an American Brown Ale from scratch, but I wanted to add a bit of a twist to it in the form of a small addition of peat-smoked malt. Ideally, I'd like it to be a...
