The calcium chloride really did the trick. My pickles still have a few days to go because they are not sour enough but these are the most firm and crisp pickles I have ever had.

BTW: According to your argument Jackson Pollock did you create because he used paint and andy Warhol was not an artist because he used silk screen. It's not the canvas, it's what you do with it.
Keith, you're completely missing my point, so I'll give you some examples. I think you're taking exception with my use of "derivative," so I'll replace it with "innovative" as in, creative vs. innovative.
Creative vs. innovative:
Newcomen's steam engine vs. Watt's steam engine
Xerox's GUI vs. Apple's GUI
Pale lager vs. every beer made to compete with pale lager
For me if a beer is from Belgium it should be classified as so. Made elsewhere with the yeast it should be termed "Belgian-style" or inspired if you want as the aforementioned Belgo indicates. This will at least alert the consumer if strong yeast byproducts are apparent in the flavor and construed as intentional.
I love that strange beer they make, but it's not creative.
What makes it Belgian? Um....if it's made in Belgium.
