I have left samples of turbid mashed lambic around 6-8 months old out over night (forgot to
dump them). They went distinctly purple and cloudy.

Have you considered that "less is more"? You are making a hefeweizen american salty sour

Every beer I have used Roeselare in has gone to zero. Many if not all of those beers are
blended so could easily be off a few points, alongside that acid production (lactic acid is
