Repitched last night and it's bubbling this morning. I guess the yeast was just bad. Who knows.

How'd you like the smell of all of that DMS blowing off while you boiled it? It smells like sweet apple sauerkraut to me. I kind of like it.

Took a sample to see if the gravity had gone down at all.....it hadn't. The sample was DMS city. Will that get scrubbed out by the yeast during fermentation.....assuming this most recent yeast pitch will take?

I think I may have figured it out. Our water company recently treated our water with chlorine. I did boil my rehydration water but not long enough to boil out all of it.
That has to be it.

Yeah nothing at all. Wondering if the yeast was bad. I know it wasn't expired.

I haven't had issues with lag, when pitching yeast in a soured wort. It's not like 3.9 is a highly acidic, and hostile environment for US05. Did you directly sprinkle the packet in, rehydrate and pitch, or make a starter?

I do notice that soured wort needs a bit more aeration than normal, to get a really active fermentation initially.

I've heard of folks making starters with the same PH as the wort, so there is no shock to the yeast, but I never bothered doing that, and never had an issue with a no start/stuck fermentation.


Rehydrated in sterilized water. Injected O2 in the wort, had yeast nutrient, and cooled wort to same as the yeast slurry. I've had issues with US05 lately. I'm really getting close to swearing it off. I've had it start slow before, and it usually doesn't finish. I never have problems with 04 but I wanted a clean yeast profile in this.

TGCM does the yeast lag bad in a kettle soured wort?

I'm 36hrs after US05 pitch with no action.

Lol the DMS while it was souring was crazy.

Boiled the Berliner last night. Final ph was 3.9. I could have let it go another day or so, but it's low enough for me. Added US05 and after fermentation I'll either do 1 secondary with some fruit, or split it up and do 2 different fruits.

You won't be disappointed with Russian River at all. That is a truly great brewery. The drive up there is pretty and there's quite a bit to see in downtown Santa Rosa.

Come on up to Portland and we'll go to Breakside. 👍

That's definitely on my list for future trips.

I wish I could get out to this place today. Oh well. :mope:

Damn. I'd just start at the top and work my way down. Great beers on there. We're going to San Fran in a couple of weeks. We're definitely going to Russian River.

6hrs for me.... pass. A local FB beer group I'm in split the cost of obtaining a barrel for your choice of beer from Prairie. Like 60 of us. Going to be bourbon barrel aged Stout with cinnamon, vanilla, and maple. Can't wait.

I'm not sure that they distribute. May be Brewery release/on site.

Yeah Prairie makes killer stouts. Their sours are good too.

American Solera is a sister company that makes amazing sours as well.

Harvested my hops. Just have to dry them out now and then vac seal them. Going to use them to dry hop a pale ale. IMG_7066.JPG IMG_7067.JPG
