Thanks. No fining for me, just cold crash and two weeks in the keg.

You can use Potassium Sorbate at 1/2 tsp/gal and wait at least 24 hours, then you can back sweeten with sugar dissolved in some water. Be careful of sweetening too much.

I suggest make the Pale Ale and sub in a 1/2 lb of Crystal 40 or 60 for the 2 row. Also, leave out the orange peel. This beer won't have a ton of hops to hide any flaws. If you can make a nice, clean Pale Ale without any off flavors you can make any IPA later. Remember to keep your fermenting temperature in the 60's.

Thanks for the feedback.  I am going to do the pale ale, and replace some of the 2 row with c60.  I am also dropping the orange peel in secondary, but do want the orange as the late boil addition....I love a hint of orange in beer.  I am also changing from Cascade to Amarillo.  This is what I have now:

10 lbs Pale Malt (2 Row) US (1.8 SRM)
1 lbs Caramel Malt - 60L (Briess) (60.0 SRM)
1.00 oz Amarillo [9.20 %] - Boil 60.0 min 34.3 IBUs
1.00 tsp Irish Moss (Boil 15.0 mins)
0.50 tsp Yeast Nutrient (Boil 10.0 mins)
1.00 oz Amarillo [9.20 %] - Boil 5.0 min 6.8 IBUs
1.00 oz Orange Peel, Bitter (Boil 5.0 mins)
1.0 pkg Safale American (DCL/Fermentis #US-05) [50.28 ml]
Amarillo will give you more orange of a citrus flavor than the grapefruit flavor of Cascade.

Being Belgian I wouldn't use anything I wouldn't put in a fruit lambic, so no pineapple, sorry.
I dunno, pineapple lambic sounds like it has potential to me. Brett brux can get pretty pineapple-y.
My favorite Sour beer that I make with fruit consists of pineapple, mango, and papaya. It doesn't last long especially in the summer.

You must have some weird laws in Belgium.

BTW, any suggestions for another fruit to add to a base cider? I really like this  method: ferment dry an apple cider, add another fruit in secondary, and back sweeten with honey and some juice.
I had one with pineapple and it was amazing.

You could buy frozen cherries and rack your beer on them after primary fermentation.

I'll add a few more...MC5 and Velvet Underground.


Totally underrated and influential. I think Iggy and the Stooges were added by somebody, too. If not, they need to be on there.
Yeah, that was me.
