I will brew mine in the next

I will brew mine in the next week or so and will ferment it here at my place.  I will coordinate brining over the fermented product at the end of the month or the first few days of Sept.  I am out of town the last week of August.

Josh S,

Josh S,

Will do.  I just stopped by B&G for my specialty grains and yeast.  There were still 4 yeast packets still there after I took mine.  I'm hoping to brew tomorrow or Saturday and will keep you posted.

I brewed this AM and am

I brewed this AM and am stepping up my yeast until I pitch tomorrow. 

I could not find C90 at B&G so I used C80.  My mash temp was off a bit, probably closer to 153 than 155. OG is just below 1.09.  Otherwise, all went according to plan.

Do not step up this yeast.

Do not step up this yeast.  These are designd to pitch straight.  Stepping up will only multiply sachro and not bugs throwing off the proportions.

My ferment has considerably

My ferment has considerably slowed and I took  small sample of it yesterday and cold crashed it.  Wow, did it taste great.  This is going to be an awesome barrel!  I will definitely brew with this yeast again.

Pretty sure you aren't gonna

Pretty sure you aren't gonna wanna cold crash a beer with brett and bugs. Whole point of that cocktail you pitched is to let it hang out for a long long time at room temps to funk and sour up that beer.

What's the status of this? 

What's the status of this?  Did we get 30 gallons of brew and will we be filling the barrel soon.  I have 5+ gallons of wort and can bring it over at any time.  It tastes great and will make a super beer, with or without souring.  If needed, I'd be happy to talk about brewing more of it to reach the needed quantity.

All,

All,

Ive been trying out this barrel for the last few months.  I dont see it going anywhere on its own.  I am going to say we should pull it out of the barrel soon.

It is an ok beer on its own but it never really got sour.  I will personally be blending mine with another batch that I have.  You can do with your whatever you please.  If you want advise let me know.

I want to pull it out of the barrel early afternoon before the next meeting on 4/12/2015.  I will try and give a better time closer to then.  Otherwise please come help around noon.  We will empty it then I will blend and keg my batch.  If you do not show up leave specific instructions for me to fill your carboy or your batch will not be saved.

No its not the barrel.  Its a solid beer just not what I expected.  I think the alchol was to much to let it go sour.  There are ways to change that through blends etc.

Friendly warning this barrel

Friendly warning this barrel will be emptied this sunday around noon.  

Make sure if you have a batch in it, that you have a clearly marked sanitized carboy, keg or some type of vessel.  Or be present to help.  If you do not have something on site and I cannot locate something of yours on rack you batch will be dumped.

Please come help if you can.
