This now has my interest. I hope to brew something with this yeast later in July.

Curious as to how one acquires the smell of "sweaty horse balls" character??

I just brewed a mini-mash batch yesterday and after reading this thread I am very exited for the finished result. I'm going to rack onto 5lbs of Apricots and let it rest on them for about a month then dry hop with some Sorachis and Amarillos before bottling. I'll update. Anyone else finish theirs??

Hijack!

I wonder if we can achieve the flavor of the balls of other animals if we tried. Sweaty monkey ball IPA sounds appealing?

Here is the recipe I just brewed the other day using wlp670 I love sours and am hoping that the brett plays nice with the apricots. I used to packages and made a starter. Any thoughts.

5lbs EPLME
2lbs Wheat LME
1lb torrified wheat
1lb Belgian pilsen malt
3/4lb flaked maize
1/2lb honey malt
1/4lb acid malt
WLP 670

60min 1oz Tettnang, .25oz Sorachi Ace
20min 1oz Saaz, .25oz Sorachi Ace
5min .5oz Sorachi Ace
Rest on 5lbs of fresh apricots in secondary and dry hop with 2oz of sorachi ace 2 weeks before bottling

I'll let you know about the 'Sweaty monkey ball IPA'. I just brewed an IPA with this since the guy at the store didn't know what type of ale it was for and when i looked at the WLP site they didn't have it listed.

Complete noob mistake, but I am sure it will be drinkable.

On 7/1 I brewed a saison of sorts, mixing continental malts and American hops. Gravity went from 1.056 down to 1.008 in about a week. I tasted it yesterday and it's quite saison-y (sorry, i don't have the flavor vocabulary of a BJCP judge) with a tiny bit of brett so far. It's very good as it stands now but my plan is to leave it for another 2-4 weeks to see what happens, though at 1.008 I'm not sure how much more will change.

Here is my recipe (though I changed some of the additions and amounts of hops when I realized I didn't quite have exactly what I thought. I stuck with the same types of hops though...I'll edit when I get home and can check my notes).

I just bottled a mini batch this morning. The only way to describe it is sour. I'm hoping it will tone down a little after a couple of weeks in the bottle but we'll see
