Beer Recipes / Re: Souring Advice on Fruit Saison

Id say yes, but pedio will be doing all the heavy lifting. Then the bret will have some cleaning up to do. So you're looking at a few months for this beer to be all done. That should be expected though.

So, you're going to just pull a gallon of your saison and play around with it, right? If so, I think I would just purge the secondary with CO2, rack my beer onto the fruit, pitch the roselare straight from the pack. Airlock till it quits then bung it and let it ride for several months.

Wyeast lactose won't do much at that level of IBU. It will take pedio to get much sour. You get both in roselare. How sour do you want it?

I'll just suffer through only having Logsdon Farmhouse and The Commons in my neck of the woods. Kind of a sour apocalypse

I'm afraid I will have to report you to the Belgian government for this. What is your real name, date of birth and passport number?
There goes my dream of a sour beer vacation

Cool. I'll have to try to find some and compare. I agree with him that a touch more bite, or sharpness would really make mine pop. Fine tuning that one will be a fun fall project

Hey that's good news. I don't keep it around lol. My wife loves it. It goes fast. I get the sweetness perception too. That one was tettnanger bittered. The one before was hallertau. The one I'm bottling tonight is magnum. I'll see how that one comes out and choose which hop of the three works best. Then I'll do a double brew day and bump the pH down a little on one of them. Glad you enjoyed it.

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

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.
