    Very Sour - What would you do?

    A little bit better answer than my previous one. First of all you already have two years into this what's another 6 to 12 months. If it was me in this predicament i would brew the same beer ferment it out with a clean sacc strain. Then pitch a menagerie of Brett strains in secondary. Use that...

    Added dregs to an American Brown Ale

    For mixed fermentation I use wyeast or grow up bottle dregs. For Brett beers I use white labs and bottle dregs. For lacto only I use a probiotic called pb-8. I really like adding fresh packs with bottle dregs from 4 to 6 bottles

    Added dregs to an American Brown Ale

    I brew up an extra gallon every brew day just for bottle dregs. Let them sit for 6 to 12 months. If the beer is good the next time I'm brew it I do 10 gallons and split the batch half sour half clean. I just use the cake from the gallon on the sour.

    Help - your opinion needed

    It's gonna take an awful lot of strawberries to get strawberry flavor I would go with raspberries personally. A pound per gallon gets me where I want to go. Fructose is a simple sugar the sacc will have no problem fermenting out the sugars from whatever fruit you use. Don't worry about that...

    Green coffee

    Has any one used green coffee as an additive? I'm brewing a stout in a few weeks and I plan on splitting the batch with 05 and some dregs from my cellar. I have been thinking of adding a touch of green coffee to the sour side. I'm also thinking what other direction I could go with green...

    A sad day

    What does it look like? If it is green dump it if it is a white powdery looking taste it. I know unintended infections rarely produce a hood sour beer. But you will never know if you don't try it.

    The "Dear" , "Sincerely" thread

    Dear past self, You sir are a knucklehead. Really you were at the hardware store buying new tubing. Why on earth did you decide not to grab the screw for the grain mill. I don't know. Maybe you like crushing 30 lbs of grain by hand. Masochist. Sincerely hoping I remeber next time.
