Sour mash questions

#1 Post by Dale Wheeler » Tue Dec 11, 2007 12:31 pm

Has anyone experimented with creating a sour mash? I am planning yet another attempt at a Guinness clone, and I want to add this element, as I?ve read about elsewhere.
In the past, I mashed a lb of malt a day ahead, which I added to my brewday mash. I couldn?t taste it in the end result.
Also, any recommendations on brewing methods, grainbill or yeast for dry stout? I?m never satisfied that my stout is dry enough.

Ever consider acidulated malt?

2. The phenomenon a person has when craving more bitterness in beer.
3. The long-term exposure to extremely hoppy beers; if excessive or prolonged, a habitual dependence on hops will occur.
4. When a "Double IPA" just is not enough
