IMO it is better to take out a portion of the slurry - heck, it only takes a minute to dump in clean, sani mason jar, and measure out the appropriate amount. Also, the bruno hefe - the old yeast and protein hop resin on the sides if the fermenter - you dnt really want that to dissolve back into your beer. I think you make better beer by measuring out the slurry and pitching into a clean fermenter.

Hey BTW is it called barunhefe? IDK I always forget how to spell it.  I heard the Masterbrewer from Aanheuser-busch give a talk about exactly what you said majorvices.

I think you could plant one now. You're really only trying to establish a root system the first year.

This beer recipe seems tempting to make. I'm thinking of making an all grain version of this.  When it's cold and carbonated, it would be appreciated if you can post your thoughts on the beer.

morticaixavier,   I've been thinking of brewing up a low gravity sour.  Although, I've never tasted a very low gravity sour, I think you make a good point about using wild yeast strains, so that the beer can develop complex flavors.

how about something that is about 3 pounds each vienna and munich 20l then throw in a little 60l crystal/5gallons should come in just under 3%

yeah, I think munich and vienna are going to play a roll in making this.

Are we talking low alcohol or low calorie or both?

At this point I'm strictly foucusing on producing a very low gravity beer that tastes great. At this point I'm not concerned about the amount of calories.  The style of the beer does not matter either just as long as the low gravity beer tastes great.

I guess what I should be asking is, have you ever brewed or tasted a low gravity beer that was phenomenal?

 kylekohlmorgen, I am a big fan of the mad fermentationist, but have never seen that blog post. Thanks for posting that link.  Most of the low gravity beers (3% or lower) I have tasted, have in most cases been one dimensional.  Therefore, I like Mike Tonsmire's approach of trying to retain a certain level of complexity when dialing down the ABV.  I will absolutely try this.

Kgs, using splits is a great suggestion.  I'll have to get some for my high gravity beers. 

My thought:  I don't think I've ever tasted a beer of 3% or lower abv and said dang that is a truly great beer.  I've tasted beers of 5%-6%-7%-8%-9%-10% abv-etc.. and have thought that some were great tasting beers.  However, I can't say the same for a low gravity beer of 3% abv or lower. 

I've tasted craft brewed English MILD brown ales, and thought they were great examples of the style.  But they did not not fall into the category of being some of the greatest beers I've ever had. 

My objective is:  To try and make a beer of 3% abv or lower, that is great tasting. Maybe this low gravity beer will not belong to any particular beer style category. Sometimes I just want to drink a cold and fizzy malty beer that is great tasting without getting a buzz.  Sometimes I might want to drink the heck out of it, and sometimes I might just want to have one.

I'd like to take a look at your blog.

"Resin has been widely compared to opium, however without the addictive qualities."

Looks like I'm going to have to make a grape seed oil tinicture to see what this is about.  Maybe use 95% Everclear alcohol to extract the resin.

If you are not force carbonating with CO2 then you can add 4oz of corn sugar for 5 gallons of beer.

That's flattering someone had Schoolhouse Tafelbiert on tap.  Thanks for the recipe.
