    Lactic acid vs Acetic acid profile

    Did my first batch of Kombucha yesterday and there's already visible results from the 1 gallon jar, but I had a few questions. Is it possible to get lactic acid profile from Kombucha? I really enjoy brewing sour beers and wanted to know if that sort of tartness can be achieved with Kombucha...

    Real Ale Hans Pils

    Whiskey Barrel Aging

    So I picked up a 5 gallon Balcones Blue Corn Whiskey barrel. I added some Rye whiskey to it and shook it around and then added my fully fermented Rye stout to it. I actually had the rye stout on 10psi of Co2 for about 5 days before transferring it to the barrel. So my question is - how...
