Thanks. That definitely gives me some ideas. I assume it's 100% brett beer?

I have a vial of this stuff and can't really figure out what a good beer to use it in would be. I was thinking of doing a 100% Brett Beer with it, maybe a Saison? I am open to suggestions.

Cascade have just started to bud but the Zeus grew extremely fast.

I am experiencing the opposite, my Cascade is budding big time, and my Zeus is barely growing

For some of us "bacony" sounds delicous. Vegans need not apply.

I haven't done it with actual sour cherries since they're not exactly local to my locale, but I have goosed a saison with this stuff - King Orchards Tart Cherry Juice Concentrate.

It's a pretty good effect. Don't know if you need the Brett, but what the heck!

How much did you use?

I'll take 2  :D

I left mine at the default. My effciencey has increased about 10% compared from the LBHS grist

Miguel, I used habanero so it was mostly heat. If I do try it again, I will use a more flavorful pepper with less capsaicin, such as a Anaheim or Fresno chili. Also I didn't need to sanitize the peppers, the vodka does that.

I would advise against putting peppers directly in your boil, you have no way to gauge the heat. What I do is make a tincture. I chop up peppers, and add to a small jar of vodka. Let is sit for a few weeks. Then you can do some taste tests to gauge your heat. I used an eye dropper and added from 1 to 5 drops at bottling time to each bottle, and marked then accordingly. I still have that small jar of habanero juice years later, a little bit goes a long way.

All those pro brewers out there using open fermenters don't worry.
Take a cue from them.

No big ting bruddah!

That's what I was thinking Carl. That's why I didn't freak out, and relaxed with a homebrew made with only home grown hops.

I brewed a simple pale ale yesterday. Put the bucket in ferm chamber, but forgot to put liquid in the airlock. The fermentation chamber is a brand new chest freezer than hasn't has anything it really, except for a bucket. So I'd assume the envirment in there is very sanitary. It was probably about 12 hours with out liquid in the airlock. I used a starter of ECY12, if that makes a difference. Should I worry?

I have a lot of Simcoe I need to use up, thanks for the idea.
