Welcome to the homeBBBrew board!
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!

NO SPECIFIC REASON FOR THIS LINK...
I just really like the work levifunk is doing!

How do you get the fruit out of your sours?
How do you get the fruit out of your favorite sours?

My plan is to use a nylon bag around the "out" side of the transfer tube, between the carboy and cornie.

That way I hope to minimize the fruit uptake and through put.

Any other options?

Thanks,

BW

Well I bought a 5 gallon paint strainer. It is nylon, just like the bags you buy at the LHBS.

The cherry beer should be okay to transfer and bottle straight away. The raspberry puree was transferred and placed in the cold box to help clarification.

Leaving fruit in the bottle just seems like a bad idea in the long run. Even if just to minimize nucleation points for gushers.

You definitely don't want fruit in the bottle. It will gush.

I transferred to a bottling bucket when I bottled my fruit lambics recently and I used a cheap in-line irrigation filter on the transfer hose.

I picked it up at the local hardware store following someone's recommendation.

I had to empty it a couple of times but it worked pretty well...
