First bottle of the unblended batch, it's not bad. Different, nice acidity. I think it will gain more complexity with time, I'm looking to see how it is at Xmas. Over all, success so far.

Subbed. I've got three almost full kegs that were pulled out of my fridge during a recent move. They've been sitting in the garage under pressure for six months and I haven't had the heart to check them (much less dump). Maybe I should say F it and give them a potential new lease on life

Check them, if they haven't soured they may be fine. I they have soured and you enjoy sour beer, I say dose them with Brett to eat any by products and attenuate any sugars left. You won't be guaranteed any results but it could be awesome. I'm very amazed at how my experiment is turning out and I'd say the guy I got these kegs off of has no idea I took beer, he probably wrote off not long after brewing, since the kegs were almost full.

Did a side by side tasting of the unblended and blended batches, last week. Everyone was pleased with the tastes and aromas. The blended batch was obviously less acidic, both batches seem to be ready for some extended aging to really see how they turn out but so far this has been nothing but a success.

Would roselare need oxygen to do its thing? I put my bad beer into a better bottle with roselare two months ago with some raspberries. Theres a big nasty raft of raspberries and mold on top of the beer. I was wondering if i would be able to transfer the beer and yeast to a corny, hit it with co2 and let it ride.

Mold? Are you sure it's mold? If you have mold, that's bad news but may still be salvageable. If its just a pellicle, then you're safe. Roselare is a blend of yeasts and I think also lacto so o2 would help just a little. You need to taste it to determine what the next step is. What made it a "bad beer"?

That's not mold my friend, that's the pellicle. You see those bubbles trapped in there? Mold don't do bubbles let alone produce co2 like that thing is doing? How long did you say it's been with the roselare and raspberries? And what was wrong with it initially?

Cool, thanks for the help. The only problem was it had a funky peppery taste that i didnt care for too much. Its been on the raspberries and roselare since 7/7 so 7 weeks only. I'm figuring on it being on the yeast for close to a year, so i dont want vinegar. Figured a corny and co2 woukd be better for long term than a bb.
