Extract Brown Ale With Wild Yeast: Homebrewing With A Log

In this extract brewing video we make a sour brown ale with wild yeast and steeped grains. This is our second video where we use a log covered in wild yeast to ferment a beer, except this time we make a darker beer using malt extract and specialty grains. Besides using wood to ferment this beer, it is also unique because it has zero hops. We made sure to add no hops to this beer so they would not interfere with the lactobacillus which will make this beer more sour. Out of the three total methods to brew beer – extract, partial mash, and all grain – the extract brewing method is cheapest, fastest, and easiest way to brew beer at home. The extracts we’re using are Golden Light and Sparkling Amber extract from Briess. At the end of this brew day, we put our log that’s covered in a unique blend of Saccharomyces, Lactobacillus, and Brettanomyces into our wort to start fermentation. Dailey Crafton, a homebrewer from Yonkers, New York, sent us this log that he’s become known for from a Vice documentary series. We explain who Dailey is and take a deep dive into wild yeast in two previous videos. Check out the resources below for brewing equipment, previous log beer videos, Dailey’s projects, and an educational article about 10 Steps to Better Extract Brewing.
