Berliner Weisse
« on: January 23, 2013, 01:32:22 PM »
Brewed this one using the no boil method and made a 6gal and 3gal batch.  The 6gal will be fermented with 5335 for 3-4 days; Iíll measure the pH and taste before jugging when itís time to pitch S-05, Iím shooting for a pH of 3.0-3.3 but Iíll let the tasting decide.  Itíll be in bottle in 3-4 weeks, adding more lacto/yeast and half will be bottled with brett-L.  

The 3gal version will be fermented the same way but just a little longer on the lacto.  After fermentation Iíll blend it with 2gal of my grodziskie, age it another month then bottle.  The inspiration for this came from Hopfenstarkís Boson de Higgs which is a cross between a berliner, a rauch and a saison, itís great stuff.  

Those will be sweet for next summer :)
