I brewed another 10gal of Berliner Weiss. That makes 20gal I have fermenting. This new batch will be split, half will be dry hopped with amarillo hops, and the other half will have cinnamon added to it for a nice fall version.

Up next, I think I might try a Berliner Rye, or maybe a Black Berliner (or one made with dark wheat instead of pale wheat). I am trying to find the limits of the style, because my dream brewpub will have this as one of its flagships. The fact that every BMC drinker seems to like the style makes me think it would be a great unifier between beer geeks and casual beer drinkers, especially when paired with a wide array of homemade syrups (that could also be seasonal).

What technique do you use to sour them? Just add some lacto?

Lactobac, yes. Of course, I also do a no boil, but I don't know yet how much that contributes to the sourness. My next step is to boil for 15 minutes and see if that affects things much.

Just tried some framboise that is ~6 months. I used only WY labic blend to ferment. It is very sour but good. A little more aging and I think it will mellow a little to near perfect.

It was a kit I added rasp to but have now moved to AG...anyone have a good AG recipe? I was going for a less sweet, more sour, Lindemans since that is the only one I have had.

Just brewed my first sour beer this weekend, a Flander's Red. I've actually only ever had a Lindeman's Cherry Lambic, so this is a "wild" leap out there for me.

The only thing I had open was a plastic Ale Pail to ferment in. I'm guessing that I want to move it out of that and into glass pretty soon after the really active fermentation dies down.

I've also got old school Mr YUCK stickers to put on the pail and lid just to remind me not to cross contaminate any future brews with my bugged gear.

If you have already "bugged" up the bucket, you might keep it in there for a little while to allow some oxygen transfer.


Anyway, I've got 5 gallons of a blond ale with Brett C + dregs galore that's been going for about a month and a half.
