One could always go to a cherry eating festival and bring a sack to collect pits.

I transferred my Dunkel to kegs today.  Does that count?
Huh, I just bottled a Dunkel.

Wow! 3B must be a pretty skilled brewer, rocking the high score with light lager. Not much wiggle room for error in those.

Ive done burboun, and burbon oak. The best way I can describe the difference is compare a barrel aged sour with a fresh beer that the brewer just squirted some lactic acid into.

When they don't easily fit, its time to invent a style.

Ya sure. If ten pounds of pils in one beer, but 12 pounds in beer number 2, beer number 2 will be 1.2 times darker.

Boil time differences?

What are the gravities? Percentages are not enough info. In other words two 100% pils beers can be different colors if one is 1.040 and the other is 1.080

So after boiling pils wort for 90 minutes there IS smm still available but you'll be fine as long as you don't cover it? Or there is NOT smm so covered or not you're fine either way?

I did two fruited sours last summer with roselare primary pitch no starter. A month in temp control at 68f then I put in my fruit and moved to a closet for about 7 months. They turned out great. Plenty of sour. Moderate funk.

I wouldn't be worried so much about controlling it but protecting it from freezing solid in the winter.

I really should have thought this through better. Beer swap pyramid scheme. Whatever you ship you have to also ship to me. Dang it!

Because it's still producing DMS but no rolling boil to drive it off

Not sure I agree with this statement.  You boil Pils malt longer to drive off all of the DMS.  Once it's out, it's out.  It doesn't keep producing in perpetuity.
I'm going to go with this thought. If I find DMS I'll rethink it. I have yet to find DMS in any of my beers, so probably im going to slay another boogie man. I think that its something I heard on a podcast, that pils malt has so much SMM that even after 90 minutes it will still convert to DMS. This won't be the first podcast dogma that will prove untrue. Thanks for chiming in and encouraging me to try it out.
