Yeast and Fermentation / WYeast 1388: Does it give the beer a sour flavor?
« on: November 17, 2010, 03:43:26 AM »

I recently tried brewing my first Belgian IPA.  I picked up WYeast 1388 because it was labeled as "Belgian Strong Ale" yeast.  When I went to bottle the beer, everything smelled fine, nothing out of the ordinary.  Everything looked okay, but when I sampled a little bit, I noticed a definite sour taste.  I later read the profile that said it gives a "tart finish."  I was wondering if anyone else has used this yeast, and, if so, has does it make the beer sour, or did I probably have a sanitation problem?  I bottled it anyway, since I put all that work into it, but if it went bad, I guess I'll have to dump them out.

So, would that be a bacteria they add?  Or is that something that is just a result of an open air fermentation?

Yeast and Fermentation / Souring Fermentation

I recently had the opportunity to tour the New Glarus Brewing Company as well as sample some of their beers.  I tried the Old English style porter and was shocked to the unusual sour taste.  Looking on their website, it says they performed a "souring fermentation."  I was curious is anyone knew what is meant by "souring fermentation" as I don't have a clue.

I am curious if there are any clubs around Madison, Wisconsin.
