That same year, on a flight home from Belgium, Tomme Arthur and I were discussing everything we had learned the previous week. He brought up the idea of first making a sour mash in the mash tun and then the following day use the mash tun as a horny tank (after the spent grain is removed) to start collecting some wild yeast and bacteria. This is an alternative for those brewers who do not possess a coolship. The wort from that first batch of Sonambic sat in the mash tun overnight and by the next morning, to my surprise, it was fermenting.
We had to uncork all of the bottles in order to release some CO2, then recork each one. We did this process by hand four times to over 3,000 bottles before finally adding a new wire hood. Fortunately, it worked and we were able to sell all the beer. That money was likely needed to make payroll back in the early days! Then there was the time when our first bottled batch of Sanctification (100% Brettanomyces beer) formed a pellicle in the neck of the bottle. At the time I had no idea what a pellicle was or what caused it.
In addition to the beers that fall into the classic styles, the country is also dotted with a plethora of tiny breweries making acidic and funky beers all their own. Despite its size, Belgium produces a greater variety of beers than any other European country; their brewers simultaneously hold a reverence for tradition and a passion for experimentation. Even several of the most ardently traditional lambic producers brew experimental batches with nontraditional fruits, spices, and barrel aging techniques.
