  1. 1. I have ten gallons of a pale ale about 4 days into fermentation. Im thinking about taking 5 gallons of it and doing something different. Should I...?

    • Leave it alone. Keep 10 gallons of a pale ale
    • Do a secondary ferment with some oregon fruit
    • Do a secondary ferment with some Brett

Help me make a choice

Lol, I voted! 

Although I've never split a batch or moved to a secondary, 10 gallons is a lot of beer to me, since I only do about 4 gallons and change a month.

I like the variety, so yeah I'm all in on splitting and adding some fruit.

Sounds like you just need to go with the Brett. It's what you really want. Come back next time with a plan for the fruit.

This wins. It is what i would prefer. I used delta hops for the first time and i think id rather be familiar with the hop flavor before i start adding fruit flavors. Im kinda surprised no one asked what hops i used.

Some of the funnest things about home brewing is being able to experiment. Do this this time, the other next and hell, maybe something else next time. :) 

 

I look forward to our jump to a bigger system to where our current becomes our “pilot” system and we can do those things again too. :)

So you're goibg with tge Brett...I feel so dirty and used. 😃

This poll went further than just this forum. My wife, four year old and two year old also said brett. That brought it up to 8, which beats 7 for fruit. The two year old was quite persistent
