  1. hey Mike, The AHA rally is this Sunday and Surly’s wort give away description is as follows:Wort Specifications

    Pale Lacto-kettle soured wort
    Brewed with Simpsons Golden Promise & aromatic malts
    Minimal bitterness
    Boiled & oxygenated for your experimental homebrew pleasure
    Target OG: 13° P (~1.053 OG)
    pH: 3.2

    What are some of your recommendations for yeast with the soured wort?

    • Sweet! Or actually acidic.

      I’d be tempted to either run something kinda clean (Kolsch/German ale-type) to let those nice expensive malts show through, or something Saison-y … or split batch with both.

      Let us know how it goes!

  2. MISTER DAWSON, SIR! My loving wife bought me a variety of hops for my birthday, and one i’m not overly sure what to pair with it..
    So I’ve been doing some reading and coming to the conclusion that it apparently pairs well with Nelson Sauvin… and Nelson sauvin supposedly pairs well with galaxy (i’ve never used them on the same beer, or had them in the same beer).
    So i’m debating doing a nelson sauvin, galaxy and kohatu pale ale… thoughts?
    May knock it back to just nelson and kohatu, but this is where i seek your expertise, sir!
