    This sounds good. How will you carb in bottle or keg. I believe the carb level is supposed to be up around 3.0 vol. Normal bottles might not handle that level

    IIRC a standard American glass bottle is rated to 3 vol of CO2. I've been using carb tabs to prime lately, I probably won't change the dose from what I've been doing on my pales/IPAs.

    Another Farmhouse strain I've been interested in is Lithuanian farmhouse Simonaitis

    Like kviek but not quite .
    Anyhow this is the isolated strain.

    Looks intriguing. I'm trying to avoid low floccuating strains because I bottle straight from the fermenter. Omega has a Lithuanian Farmhouse strain as well, but the description of strong black pepper turned me off of it

    Took a gravity reading on the kolsch just under 1.008 81% attenuation so I think it's pretty much done.

    Also slugging some passionfruit saison for Quality control purposes;);)

    I got an email back from the brewer about the grisette! I spent a lot of time today researching mixed fermentation and yeast strains and came to the conclusion that I'm going to need solid fermentation temp control before I attempt this beer. And preferably a 2nd fermenter. I've never used diastaticus yeast before and I'm worried about the long fermentation time and my lack of patience in packaging to open up the fermenter for another brew :)

    Nice when a brewer is happy to share :D

    Diastaticus scared me, even though I was kegging. Yes, you think it is done, the Tilt says it is done, but those Diastaticusses are sneaky. Then to avoid 'infection' I used Iodophor to make sure it was all dead after. A second fermenter will let you leave it be for a while.

    Patience, and multiple fermenters are quite the plus. I am glad to be in possession of both.

    I have my second batch of IPA of the 3 C’s in the fermenter since Labor Day, and my wife and I are going out of town for a little vacay. Sunday, before we leave, I will dry hop that brew. It should be ready for packaging when we return on Thursday, so almost 3 weeks in the fermenter. The previous batch I had bottled in about 2 weeks. I am hoping that the extra time in the fermenter might improve clarity - that is the patience part. If not, it is still a very tasty beer.

    Leaving town is certainly one way to deal with fermentation impatience Herm! :D

    I just renewed my AHA (American Homebrewers Association) membership, and as a result of renewing early, I saved $5. An added bonus is they are sending me a half kilo (1.1 pounds) of Azacca hops. Therefore, I will be looking into beers to use this huge (for me) quantity of hops.

    I'm debating whether to renew or not. To me it is essentially a magazine subscription.

    A nice benefit of membership is the discounts that are offered by home brewing supply shops, breweries and brew pubs/restaurants. I will try to use membership to my benefit next week in Palm Springs.
