Title: Berliner Weisse
Post by: jamie_savoie 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 (http://nbcba.org/forum/index.php?topic=2171.0), age it another month then bottle.  The inspiration for this came from Hopfenstarkís Boson de Higgs (http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/hopfenstark-boson-de-higgs/140090/) which is a cross between a berliner, a rauch and a saison, itís great stuff.  

Those will be sweet for next summer :)

You need to get to a meeting some time with these exotics... I'm sure many would be interested to give it a try :)
