Sour ales uniquely and artfully combine sour and funky characteristics with the malt and hop profile of beer. Be careful when brewing these beers, as the microorganisms that infect sour beers and cause the desired funk can attach themselves to plastic/rubber brewing equipment and infect future batches. It is highly suggested to use separate equipment for sour brews.
