As many of you all are aware, Wyeast has the Roselare blend available one again! I am very excited about this opportunity to try my hand at another sour ale. My first experiment was a super saison which was soured with a bottle of Orval's brett and it is fantastic. Now I know that the classic Rodenbach-style Flemish red ale or an Oud Bruin would be the standard go-to options for this yeast, but I thought it may be fun to throw some ideas around about some different alternatives for the blend. IIRC, alcohol tolerance is around 9% and it will take 18 months to fully mature. Sour beer seems to be the next major trend in craft brewing, perhaps we could throw some ideas around and do a group brew with some different ideas and share our results when we are done. Anyone in?
