Do I need to use a separate fermenting vessel & racking equipment for this, as I would when pitching bacteria in a sour beer?
Liam wynn on Sep 23, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We do recommend keeping a separate set of all plastic and rubber pieces for doing sour beers. Any steel, silicone, or glass can be shared and trusted if you sanitize it by boiling.

Perfect level of acidity for my taste
I can make a batch of beer that tastes similar to a kettle sour but without the additional step of souring the wort to the proper ph level before adding yeast.

Quick and easy sour beer
Love this yeast. I love sour beers but sometimes they can be a hit or miss with kettle souring or other methods. This is an easy to use, consistent, and wonderful tasting yeast. It isn't as sour as other yeasts but it is still a good kind of sour and tartness. The stone fruit flavors really come out. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to get into sour beers.

Not a pleasant sour beer
I brewed a sour wheat beer with this yeast. It got mildly tart - maybe I should have used 2 packs instead of 1 in a 5 gal batch. What bothers me more than the lack of sourness is the red apple note that the yeast produces. I cannot think of a beer style in which this would be a welcome addition and it really clashed with the the American citrus-forward hops that I selected. I won't be in a rush to use this again.

This stuff makes awesome beer. From my experience, and from watching Dr. Farber's presentation with Lallemand, I would recommend using two packs for 5 gallons and letting it heat up to 77 and holding it there. It should finish in about 10 days. Also, add sugar or mash low for more acidity.
