Default Kiwi Sour?

Has anybody on here made a Kiwi sour before? I have seen some recipes for a Kiwi wit and a few other beers but not a sour.

My idea is to make a quick sour using a large lacto ferment from a blond ale recipe and then boiling it off to stop the lacto. After that I plan to pitch a Brett L yeast and rack it to about 5-10 Lbs of Kiwis.

What do you guys think?

Ive used them in a sour before, and they are almost too light of a flavor to really come through

I think you would have to use absurd amounts to get anything out of them,

You know what might be really good? Berliner Weisse with a Kiwi Syrup.

That is a thought, using a syrup or extract. The extracts scare me though, I hear they can give a artificial taste.

Well, I meant instead of a traditional Woodruff or raspberry syrups, a homemade kiwi syrup sounds like an excellent alternative.

I wouldn't use extract flavorings in any beer of mine, but that's just me.

Yeah i read someone who stated they got about 3.5 lbs of kiwi from about 15 fruit. so that would be over 100 Kiwi, i think i may pass. that will be one expensive batch of beer and alot of labor skinning all of those kiwi Fruits.

AmandaK what would a good way be to making a syrup?

Passion fruit?
