I've done one sour (10 gallons of Flanders Red, only in carboy for a couple of months), and am now looking at getting another one going. (So, very much a noob in this area). With my brewing setup, I typically brew 10-11 gallons of beer based on one mash and then look at variations between the two carboys (different yeast strains or dry hop additions for example).
For my next batch, I'd like to brew up something a bit maltier/more roasted than the string of saisons, wits, and IPAs I've been making recently. The question I'm turning around in my head is whether I can brew something that fits that profile and would be equally tasty clean and sour.
A couple of (clean) brews on my bucket list include Janet's Brown and a Scottish 80/-. I don't necessarily need 10 gallons of either, and wondering how well these would translate to sour beers. I understand that hop-forward / high IBU beers may not be good candidates. So perhaps if I did the Janet's Brown, I could pull off some wort earlier in the process.
Conversely, how would a clean Oud Bruin based recipe taste?
Some rambling thoughts, but I figured I might get more mileage on this forum than any other public outlet I've got.
