Turbid mash?

(1/2) > >>

babalu87:
We're doing a wine barrel Lambic

Going to go with some sort of a turbid mash and long boil

Boil will probably go 2 hours but we dont want a 12 hour brew day so we're thinking of turbid mash options.

hopfenundmalz:
Randy Mosher recommends adding wheat flour at the end of the boil, as the turbid mash gives you starch at the end.  The bugs and critters use the starch as food.  Your lambic will be clear.

If you are a traditionalist, go with the long day.

Maltodextrine will also add sugars that Sacc. have difficulty chewing up, but your Brett will
be able to use as food in their cycle....I put 1/4 lb in a five gallon batch of rochefort that
got soured this weekend. The  fermentation continues nicely... :)

You don't need to add flour if you do a true turbid mash. You'll get plenty of starch from that. Perhaps that's what you meant, but your wording was confusing.
