Title: Berliner Weiss with Blackberry Syrup
Post by: ynotbrusum on August 18, 2015, 12:10:04 pm
My Berliner went a bit further on the tartness scale 2.9-3.0 pH, so I made a blackberry syrup to balance it out a bit.  Very refreshing and quite the hit with friends.....

Almost as colorful as Amanda's Beet Berliner from NHC 2014!

Looks and sounds delicious! How did you sour it? Sour mash? lacto in the fermenter?

Souring was done in the kettle - I used a Lacto starter with Omega's Lacto blend.  It went from 4.3 to 2.9 pH in less than 16 hours.

I have got to get my hands on that one.  It sounds like a strong acidity producer.
