Beer Recipes / sour cherry rochefort brett in oak
« on: March 21, 2010, 04:28:59 PM »
i am considering making 15 gallons of rochefort in the venue of Herman Holtrop's recipe
fermenting it with the saccromyces to completion then rack it into an oak cask
that had red wine last on the wood (recently). Then I was going to put in a good amount
of Brettanomyces Lambicus and some tart cherries to see what happened when you
get carried away with an already great beer...... :-\

Those things seem to grow though. I don't remember them being that large before.

Kai, I googled rod bacillus and believe that is what you are looking at....
we do live in a biological soup of sorts.

Somehow this is clear as mud. 
To Dry Hop a Lager (which should be kept at COLD temps)

just do it....?

do it before cold crashing?

Don't do it...?

I do not desire to vary the temps (warm up) on my cold lager to accomodate
the apparent better result from dry hopping at higher temps.

BUT, I do want to have dry hop results for my lager.... :-\

Thanks, now you have given me a term I was not familiar with...solera...and
the associated reading that goes with that.  Learning as I go.....

Wood/Casks / What type of beer would you put in your bbl
« on: March 11, 2010, 11:27:23 PM »
If ya finally found an Oak Barrel that had red wine last held
against the wood?

If the barrel was brett free, and you just wanted to start with the Oak
flavorings, would you put like a blond belgian in the thing ....
the wine would impart a nice color and flavor to the beer...then in the interest
of keeping the barrel full so the wood did not dry, remove an aged 5 gallons at a time
and replace it with a like colored beer until the color naturally darkened....
\
at which time you perhaps would introduce brett...and repeat the process letting
the brett beer age out harvesting 5 gallons at a time for consumption and replacing
the liquid with fresh wort....

My personal desire is to fabricate a great cherry saison...and this remains a work
in progress. All input is appreciated. i.e. what type of brett to use to accentuate cherry
flavors, what is a good source for sour cherry pulp and fruit???
The Cherry pit/ almond flavor aspect is highly appealing to me.
I am really liking the idea of this process.  But am unsure of the tried and true methods

 :-\  I tossed the only bottle I ever obtained....after a small sample.

Funny thing is, I can tolerate fleischmanns dry yeast in my pie hole...

as was mentioned, I may have to re-try as tastes change
