Yes I find this subject of some interest. Especially on a sour Braggot. Anyone got any experience with these?

I haven't used braggot level of honey in a sour, but I've gone up to 20% of the fermentables. I am a fan of what the Brett and bugs do to the honey. Adds some interesting notes. I did just blend a braggot with a sour in the keg, and am looking forward to that. I have used Brett in a braggot, but I don't think I let it age long enough.

Guys, I really don't think this is gonna happen.  If we do that, why not an area for IPA?  Brown ale?  If some of you want a separate area, give me reasons I can take to the other mods.

That's exactly why there doesn't need to be a separate section for sours. This forum doesn't move so quickly that further atomization is necessary. A thread can stay on the first page of any of the existing sections for weeks or longer.

On Tapatalk select the "Homebrewers Association" drop down menu at the top center.  Go into a particular forum then select the menu button in the upper right of the screen.  Select "New Topic."

Or, what about a competition/judging area?  We get a lot of questions on that kind of stuff.
I'd be happy to keep my eye on that for you guys if you want the help.
