I tried fermenting a beer with a probiotic with a similar mix. It didn't turn out well. Not sour. It didn't taste like anything. Even the grain flavors disappeared.

Yeah it fermented out but it just didn't taste like anything. Like you poured a splash of brown ale in a pint of carbonated water.

Not a bad experiment, but sometimes it just shows you why after thousands of years of trial and error S. cervesiae emerged as the nearly universal fermentation organism.

I should make this for my girlfriend's father then. I gave him a great smoked porter I made  couple years ago. He loved it a tablespoon at a time in his bush light.
Don't let the bastards cheer you up.

Wow.  Well, you do have to be careful when you're a Busch Light drinker. If you drink a beer with any discernable flavor, who knows what could happen ?   ;)
