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!

Flanders Red in primary for duration?
I do understand that typically, Flanders Reds are not kept on the yeast cake for the entire fermentation and conditioning phases as is ,(or can be) a lambic. Got my batch of critters from bugfarm #3 to use (many thanks to Al B.) and wanted to get the most out of these badboys. I have previously always racked my flanders reds/browns into a carboy for extended aging but was wondering if anyone has had good success with leaving them on the yeast cake for their entire time. I guess I am trying to understand why a flanders red could also not benefit by sitting on the primary yeast cake as in the case of lambic. Wouldn't the autolyzed yeast cells still end up as food / nutrients for the bacteria to chow on?

Cheers-

Rob
