    100% Wheat 100% Brett ''American Brown Ale''

    Tomorrow I brew that monster. Because why not. It's gonna be around 90-95% Wyeermann Pale Wheat, and the remaining will be carawheat, roasted wheat and midnight wheat, to get a brown-ish ale. Looking for 1045. Yeast is gonna be a blend of Brux Trois and Clausennii, a huge pitch. And...

    Ale, Lager, Lambic, Weizen... and 100% brett

    Real weizen yeast (Weihenstephaner) is not a saccharomyces, it's a close relative, sometimes called Saccharomyces Delbrueckii, but it's Torulaspora Delbrueckii. Most of weizen yeasts today are just plain Saccharomyces cerevisea who produce lots of banane esters, that's why nowadays, weizen are...

    Ale, Lager, Lambic, Weizen... and 100% brett

    I find 100% brett pretty boring, as an appelation. Personnaly, I call it by the name of the yeast species. Sacch. Cereviseau is Ale Sacch Uvarum is Lager My 100% brett brux are Brux My 100% brett lambics are Lambicus

    Ale, Lager, Lambic, Weizen... and 100% brett

    The question is.. where do you categorize it/ how do you call it? For you it's ''100% brett'' ?

    Ale, Lager, Lambic, Weizen... and 100% brett

    True Weizen aren't ale, because they don't use saccharomyces.

    Ale, Lager, Lambic, Weizen... and 100% brett

    Hey there! Just for fun... My question created some debate on a facebook group.. I was curious to see your american point of view on this. Definitions for the types of beer can vary.. but most of the time, the definition of an Ale implies the use of Saccharomyces Cerevisea (brewer's yeasts)...

    Berliner Weiss, many ways

    My concerns wouldn't be the temp (sour mash is pre-fermentation, anyway...), bu the low pH level.

    Berliner Weiss, many ways

    Yes, my plan is to boil and ferment with sacch, then bottle with brett. But now i'm just wondering what I'm gonna do with a sour wort that finished at 1014. Whatever. Sorry if I may seam rude, my english isn't so good, and I probably don't show the tone I want to :) I don't argue your infos...

    Berliner Weiss, many ways

    The sacch would have die in a pitch at 110+ °F no? And other bacteria... it was an anaerobic medium, pre-boiled... and to take it down from 1038 to 1014 in 3 days...?...
