What’s Fermenting?

A list of beers currently fermenting.  See also the Projects page, which is a better overview of the site.

I’ll try to keep this up to date.  If you want to understand my fermenter naming system, the main thing to know is that the second letter indicates whether the fermenter has had brett and/or LAB in it: “C” means clean, “B” means brett.  My “house culture” started with Jolly Pumpkin dregs, and has since had more dregs, a bunch of brett strains, and ECY20 added to it.  The lactobacillus started as a pack of Wyeast Berliner Weisse blend (3191); I’ve kept it going by feeding it apple juice, and there’s a chance there’s some brett from the original blend in there too.
