The boys at NB are doing open fermentation quite a bit and not with wild yeasts for lambics. They said infections haven't been a problem. You just need a good top cropping yeast and you need to move it out of the primary in 2-3 days. The fermentation goes much quicker when the yeast is exposed to more O2 and less pressure

Looking for more info on the table sugar. Just dump it in for the last 15min or does something have to be done to it first? And by table sugar you mean just regular C&H Pure Cane Sugar?

Thanks for the answer. I read post #5 but it was still unclear to me since I don't know what cadi sugar is or the difference in clear sugar. I didn't want to guess and screw this batch up.

Plain old granulated white cane sugar is what us mere mortals know it as.

Yes for this puppy, plain sugar is fine. Though as I talked about yesterday and Sunday when I brewed this, I'm interested in honey and honey malt for a honey blonde.

Any updates on the honey blonde? Sounds interesting.

I'm looking forward to making this beer in a few months (it's 3-4th in line at this point). Besides being a solid beer in it's own right, I'm liking the idea of a good base brew for adding fruit. Not sure I'm going with peaches, though, after giving it some thought...just not sure they would be pronounced enough. Probably will look at raspberries, cherries or blueberries.

I don't know when I'll get around to trying it. Probably not til the dead of winter when I'm looking for an inside small batch brew to do.

Do you typically skip gypsum & Irish moss on this one? I've had my starter going for a while but life keeps getting in the way of brew time. Also planning on saving some of the cake and trying the honey version after the first batch finishes in a month.

Thanks!

My batch will be going on tap this weekend. Brewed it back in July, and it's been in a keg for a month now under pressure. I've got a tap finally opening up, and this will be taking the spot. I'll report back next week on how my batch turned out.
