Didn't RPIscotty brew mostly Belgian beers? If he's gone whole-LODO he'd be a good source on that info.

While I'm not going LODO, (it's hard enough brewing in my house as it is) I'm becoming sold on the spunding idea. Seems the Brits have been basically doing the same thing in a way, transferring to the cask before the primary fermentation has completely finished. Granted, they do add wort/sugar to prime the keg at this point, but the still-active yeast should be doing much to scrub O2. It'd be interesting to see how well this would work compared to trying to transfer to a purged keg.

In the past I have frozen fresh-pressed cider, and upon thawing it started to ferment on its own.  I let the wild yeast take it, and I enjoyed that batch the most out of the five batches I did that fall.  I did yeast trials, and here were my rankings:

1) Wild yeast
2) Cote des Blancs
3) Munton's Ale
4) Montrachet
5) Pasteur Champagne

I'm getting ready to do my first pressing this year and realized I have several gallons of juice from last year's pressing still in the freezer. These were frozen right after pressing. If I were to thaw them and toss in some yeast should I sulfite them first or should there be very little wild stuff left after a year below 0F? What would you guys do here?

Fruity, interesting.
Did  you have any issues in fermentation with foam production?

Thus the reason there are so many microbreweries popping up all over the US.

My hats off to microbreweries and their artistic skill set.
