Notes

2L lacto starter from nancy yogurt used to kettle sour before boiling/hopping. (1/2)

Actual yeast Wyeast Brett C

Non sour 1/2:
6/18/18:

  • OG: 1.056
  • pH 5.40
    6/29/18:
    -SG 1.011, very cloudy, very tasty

    7/21/18:
    -bottled
    -FG 1.007
    -pH 4.15
    -tastes like rubber (what happened over those 4 weeks?)

    -9/18
    Rubber flavor somewhat faded. Still not great.

    Kettle-sour 1/2:
    6/18/18
  • 1/2 inoculated with lacto starter, pH at 1 hour 4.50

  • pH 3.4 @ ~ 21 hours
  • brew completed decreased hop boil from 50 to 40 minutes
  • OG 1.049

  • now clear, unlike the non-sour counterpart. Flavor dominated by lactic acid.
    7/3/18:
  • FG 1.008 (probably been there for a week)
  • Just tastes like lactic acid with little other character

    8/3/18:
    -tastier
