    Currents are wonderful. They such an underused fruit in the states. They're fairly tart and
    astringent such that most people don't like them out of hand( I do). I would think they would
    go well in a l...

    To see if you can malt it, I would take a few grains soak them in water for a bit and put them
    in a jar with moist paper towel. If they begin to sprout then you can try a few pounds, maybe
    enough for ...

    I love the idea of using old heritage grains like emmer, einkorn and spelt in beer. Emmer beer
    was well respected in Babylon. For extra fun and flavor you could try malting it.

    +1 for jolly pumpkin's Bam Bier. It a nice mellow sour with some bready-ness to back it up, not
    the super intense sour of some i've had.

    I would add sugar to get to the potential alcohol you want. Ferment until dry. Then stabilize
    with k meta and sorbate and sweeten.

    I see kind of like a pitch in dinner. Except people bring money in lieu of dishes so everything

    If you have a combination that you already like go for it. Otherwise I would split the batch,
    add fruit to part and herb to another part, and blend to taste later.

Planning:Choke cherry wine, brown ale. Fermenting: Bulk Aging: Oud bruin with elderberries, Brett Saison, ordinary bitter. Bottled: Oud Bruin, cider, black raspberry mead, Elderberry wine.
