Default My First (accidental) Sour

This is my first sour beer. It has been sitting for about 2 years now. This started as a red ale that just didn't taste that great. I left it sitting and the airlock dried out and a white pelical started growing. I took the airlock off and covered with tinfoil and let it sit.

This is what is looks like now...does anyone know if it should be safe to drink?







Also, do you carbonate with corn sugar as normal?

Thanks for the help!

cheers

Nick

Morning glory seeds contain LSA, a chemical very similar to LSD, and have been used as far back in time as the ancient Mayans(they called it tlitlitzin) for their psychoactive properties. Depending on potency of the seeds as little as 25 seeds can be a dose with effects lasting 6-10 hours. Check out Erowid.org for more info as there are also health risks of ingesting morning glory seeds. Especially for those taking certain types of anti depressant medications.

I've got about 20 sacred datura plants around the yard if ya wanna harvest the spiky pods.. I believe every part of that plant can make you trip balls even getting scratched.. no wonder all the hornets could care less about anyone around in my yard especially my girls

According to wikipedia it will ferment sugars to acid and gas, it didn't state what kind of acid or gas, but it doesn't really matter because neither of those things is alcohol.

I gotta go on record that I hope no amount of scientific curiosity leads anyone here to make poop beer.

How does it smell? It looks safe enough to at least try a sip to see how it is.

It actually smells GREAT which is why I'm excited about it, I just didn't want to die hahaha

I think I will just put it in some bottles and see what happens.

Do you know if you prime with corn sugar for this type of brew?

Personally I prime with regular old table sugar. Corn sugar is a rip off. You'll want to re-yeast though after aging that long

Good call on the re-yeasting, do you think US-05 would be fine? that is all i have on hand at the moment.....I could try and source some champagne yeast.

Us-05 would most likely be fine. I usually use US-04 because I like the way it flocs for bottling

Sweet S-04 it is, I actually have an extra packet of that I can do a small starter with. I will post some pics later of the final product.
