"I preferred 1318 to WLP008, though both turned out good. I used 80% Gladields pale, 10% wheat and 10% flaked oats. I did FWH with Sauvin then big whirlpool with equal parts of Sauvin, Simcoe, Amarillo and Citra, same again for the dry hops, 10g/L…"

"Thanks. Im going to run with S-04 on this one. Its a good yeast, I have found its very fast and to manage diacetyl I've  need to respond faster with temperature. This doesn't run well with my rather lazy brewing style."

"Hey bro - blueberries do go nice and red in a sour - I've used them at a rate of 125g/l - I think I've got some kicking around at home - the flavour was a bit off but the colour should be there still if you want to take a look. Might also…"

Making your Beer Red.....

Hi all,Its a relatively simple/quick question. I have a Pale Sour beer coming out of the barrel in a week or so, and had planned on adding some berries for further ageing. (most likely Blueberries) however, I've found with other pale beers with fruits, that while they take on some colour, they never really end up a beautiful red/pruple colour.and wondered about adding some hibiscus to make it look a little more vibrant?Thouights?Oh and where would I find hibiscus?See More
