I've never had a problem with a bit of Carafa III at the end of the mash with 15 min or so.

...Swore I'd never brew wild or with fruit... don't rule out doing beers you've never tried awesome examples of.

Welcome to the dark side!

It won't be long until you have funky ferments going in all corners of your house...

My wife is an angel and the proof is that we have not had a master bath shower for over a year because I took it over for my 'sour room'. This also means that on occasion an exhalation of lactic/funky wonderful will waft out of that bathroom in the night and STILL she doesn't kick me to the curb. love.
That is awesome...sacrifice for the sours!

I would check the gravity first after a week or so. You might have some fusel alcohols and some off flavors, but it might still be drinkable. You will never know until you taste it.

Getting your fermentation temps in control and pitching the correct amount of yeast will significantly improve your beer.

Yeah, I would say you under-pitched. Check out the Mr.Malty site for proper pitching rates. You really should check the gravity to know where the beer is at this point.

72 is warm and the actual temp in your fermentation vessel could be up to 8 degrees higher during active fermentation. 1056 ferments cleaner at a lower temp like 60-64. You can use a swamp cooler method to keep your temps down. We would need to know more details about your recipe to know whether or not you pitched enough yeast. The only way to know for sure is to check the gravity of your beer. My guess is that it fermented quickly because of the high temps.

Yes this looks like some nice sour beer experimentation.

Maybe add some victory or biscuit malt?
+1 I like some Victory in mine.

Yeast and Fermentation / A little Wyeast 2124 experiment

I crushed through my German Pils in early June and I wanted some more this summer. I don't have a fermentation chamber and I still use the frozen 2 liter bottles in a large bin filled with water. I've heard that this strain can handle higher temps without getting too fruity so I decided to give it a try. I got the wort down to around 55 before I pitched the yeast and within two days it got up to 60 (that was as cold as I could get it). By the end of the first week it was hovering around 64 degrees. The next two weeks it hovered around 66-68 and I thought it was probably messed up. I just racked it into a keg and tasted it and to my surprise it didn't taste bad at all. ;D

Wow, you guys are old. Don't get me wrong, my friends' parents turned me on to a lot of the bands that have mentioned here, but there has actually been some great music put out since the 70's.

Plus, everyone knows that Master of Puppets is the greatest cassette tape of all time.

Hey, I'm only 44. I just like good music. While all my friends were jamming to Metalica in 1988 I was diving into the Allman Bros and Steely Dan.

Anyone who thinks SD sounds like "elevator music" hasn't listened to anything but a few songs that hit the radio once in a while.

I've been putting together a decent sound system in my pub room and it simply blows my mind the sound quality SD was able to produce in the 70s.

I get some of you guys have "Bud Lite" music pallets. ;)
Believe me, my brother has played a couple of their whole albums trying to convince me that I should like them. I just don't care for it and I like a lot of different music genres. I have hundreds of albums and CD's and also played in 3 different bands in the 90's. I make my own music and rarely play covers (Bud Lite). ;)

I recently had an argument with my brother who loves some Steely Dan. I just can't get into them...sounds too much like elevator music to me.
