Leaving it on the yeast cake won't prevent acetobacter from forming. I would leave it alone till its been on the fruit 3 months, take a sample to taste and determine what you feel about it then. If you like it, I would say bottle it but do it at a low vol of co2. Let the bottles sit at least 3 more months then try one.

Update on the blended part of this experiment. Cracked a bottle open tonight and as you can see its pitch black with a small white head. Smells of sour apples and fruit. Taste has a nice sour bite not a lot of complexity but I can see it getting deeper. Very drinkable and still a success so far.

I did something similar, I had a hoppy APA that for done reason wouldn't clear and was too acidic, I couldn't put my finger on what went wrong. It just wasn't 'right'. So I threw it into my soured barrel with a little top up wort, threw some belle saison yeast in it and now letting it ride. I tasted it a 2 months and it's really cool, it's tropical fruity funky. Now to try to collect more bottles to bottle it.

Good luck, it sounds tasty. Ya heavy bottles are the hardest to find if you don't wanna buy them. Luckily I scored a lot from the last zwanze day and I have a friend that drinks brooklyn local 2 and those bottles take a 29mm cap.

Small update, let a buddy have a bottle and he said it was ****in amazing. I might try and crack open a bottle around the 25th to see how it is myself. It seems to be only getting better with age in the bottle.
