    Sour Mash or Sour Wort?

    In my limited BW experience, sour mash and sour wort did produce different sour levels and flavors. The sour mash a slightly off aroma, sour was mild, nice wheat and/or grain character while the sour mash was way more sour and not noticeable contributions from the malt. Held both at the same...

    Hop Pricing

    Anyone have an idea what an average or reasonable number, regarding price, would be for hops by the pound for a smaller brewpub or brewery? I realize this varies, especially on hop types, just looking for something close.

    Sour Mash BW Question

    Great, another Berliner Weisse thread, lol... I did a BW not to long ago with really really nice results, the final beer tasted Bells Oarsman, so much so that my brewing friends could only tell the difference by the amount of sour, mine was more sour, and color, mine was a little darker. I did...

    Impatience - quick question

    I never dump a batch for at least 30-40 days, unless something drastic has happened, somethings mellow with age and it might surprise you what will become drinkable.
