Ok - so I have a couple of questions prior to my Lambic brew day.
I am looking to do a pretty simple recipe, 60%pils / 40% wheat.
Here is what I need more info on:
- I have a sack of malted white wheat and a 5 gallon bucket of hard red wheat that my wife uses to make whole wheat breaad. Is unmalted wheat necessary?
- Everyone keeps saying to throw all the bugs you have into a lambic. Is this because there is just not a knowledge of what each do and when they should be added? Along these lines, I have Wyeast 3278 and 5526. Should i pitch both or just stick with the 3278 only? I am also thinking of doing 5 gallons of each. Thoughts?
- As I am doing 10 gallons and do not have a starter, should I throw some Saach in as well? I have S-04 or nottty that I could add first.
- I am planning to do a turbid mash. Is this really necessary?
Thanks for your input.
