Guess I havenít updated my plans on this beer, so here goes.

10 lbs Dark Munich
2 lbs CaraMunich
1 lb Melanoidin
1 lb Oats

1 hour mash at 158F

1 hour boil with no hops and reduction of the first 2 gallons of runoff by 3/4ths

Cool and pitch onto a yeast cake from a sour amber ale

Ferment for 3 months.

Split batch with 1/2 staying plain and the other half getting 2 lbs of D180.

Ferment 9 months.

Bottle.

Iím sure nobody remembered to tell you to add a few cigarette butts to the finished product for authentic bar ambiance.

All I know is that Roselaire isnít doing shit for acid production (beer smells good though) for the batch I have aging right now. Iím thinking a kick-start with a little of another sour that got plenty acidic might be the ticket. Anyone have good luck with roselaire? Primary or secondary addition?

Never really had any luck with it myself as far as making a beer sour goes, but, then again, I brewed sour worts completely differently (read: incorrectly) back then, so I donít think my input really means much. FWIW, I used it in the secondary. Others have said that it is primarily Brett forward and doesnít produce much sourness. If I were to use it again, Iíd pitch it as the primary fermenter and see what it did in that circumstance.

Ended up pitching a mixed culture of Brett B, C, L, & Drie with lacto and pedio.

Oud Bruin looks about spot on as far as color goes, but Iíd like the Flanders Red to darken up a bit. Hopefully age will fix that.
