---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Wed, 11 Dec 2013 11:54:11 +0100 From: Thomas Rohner <t.rohner at bluewin.ch> Subject: Berliner Weisse Hello fellow brewers I was wondering, if anyone has tried the Wyeast "Berliner Weisse"? If so, what are the experiences with it? I did two batches, where i made a sour mash for the acidity. The first batch came our wonderful. The second batch had a nasty off-taste. (something like those film wrapped hay bales you see on farms) I guess there was just the wrong strain of bacteria on the malt... Since i really like Berliner Weisse, i'm looking for a "foolproof" way to do it. Cheers Thomas Return to table of contents
Date: Wed, 11 Dec 2013 15:17:24 +0000 From: Jeff Krynitsky <jeff at wheats.com> Subject: Fruitflies And Alcohol We keep a fair amount of fresh fruit in out kitchen, generally out in a large bowl or bowls on the kitchen table. Bananas, apples, etc... The fruit flies used to be a problem, but no more. My wife bought some fine mesh produce bags. She said they sell them as re-usable bags to shop for produce. We started using them to bag the fruit then put it out in the bowls. They allow air circulation but keep the flies off the fruit. I haven't seen a fruit fly in months. My wife is happy that I don't complain about the potential contamination of my beer from the flies anymore as well. As for the crate of beer bottles, they should have been rinsed shortly after pouring.
