Lallemand Philly Sour yeast: 

Away we go

2021-1-21 (+11): Transferred to keg, fermentation seems to be complete at 2°P/1.008. Nice mellow sourness present and the saltiness is very subtle. 

2021-1-31 (+21): I didn't actually have any coriander for brew day so it's getting added to the keg in the form of a vodka tincture 


2021-2-14 (+35): Pretty much finished conditioning at this point. Pleasant tartness without too much acidity. The saltiness is subtle and I'm not really picking up any coriander which is fine - it should just add to the complexity. 

2021-3-6 (+55): full pour. clear and clean. Not very salty, I might bump that up for the next batch.
