Like the BBB, the homeBBBrew board is not a club, just a place to talk about making beer. Is there a swap you would like to see happen? If we can find a few others who have something similar then lets do it!

I just really like the work levifunk is doing!

bottling question
I just bottled my first lambic style brew. I brewed the beer back in October 2007 and used an Safale S-4 yeast, a Brett Lambicus yeast and a Pedio strain. The orgiginal gravity was 1.05. When I bottled it was at 1.004.

I used regular 22 ox bottles and 2 Coopers carbonation drops in each bottle. Am I going to have bottle bombs or am I OK given the gravity was so low? I am concerned because of what I hear about Brett liking to keep on going.

Re: bottling question
Brett + pedio is definitely something I'd keep an eye on. I make sure to open a bottle often enough that I'll know before things get too crazy.

Re: bottling question
When the carbonation level starts to get a wee bit crazy(and it will!) then be sure to put all the remaining bottles in very cold storage to help stop the critters from going farther into bomb making territory. 22oz "bomber" bottles aren't called that for nothing!! Next time use champagne bottles that are designed to hold high pressure.
