Default Boring nut brown - throw some bugs at it?

So, i've been debating making a sour soon... picked up some expired roeselare, lacto and pedio about 2 weeks ago. i'm not looking for the sacc in he roeselare to be active because the brown that i made already fermented out.

So... after the nut brown fermented out i took a sample, and i've made this recipe before, but i guess because of the yeast it's a bit... boring (like a normal brown, which i'm not a fan of) and it got me thinking. Could i just dump all 3 sacks of bactera onto the brown and have an old bruin after awhile?

thanks!

Well its a great brown. Just not one i would have brewed intentionally as i dont like them much. But i love flemmish reds and browns may not be far off so thats why i was deciding. But i have so much going down the pipeline that itll be awhile till i can use the bactera... figure this is the best shot

I did this with a few beers that weren't that interesting to me. Turned out great. Go for it.
