Sounds like what I was planning. I am going to rack onto an extra pound of honey and let it settle for a month or two then taste it.

I'm not sure if it's that roasted flavors are undesirable or if they just are lost. A lot of the malt and hop flavors are lost while souring in my experience.

I'd start with looking up recipes for...

Depending on the insect population, I would suggest something with a tighter weave than cheese cloth. You can use a paper towel and still catch the yeast and bacteria of the area.

Calder, the high ABV is most likely to help control how much of the flavor is there. The higher ABV versions of sherry don't have much almond flavor at all.

Also, another point is timing of when the bugs are added. If they are added early, I would say a turbid mash would probably be less necessary since there is more sugar that they will be able to eat....

When you think of barn yard, this of the smell of hay, dry grass, cumin, clove-like spices, and possibly some musk.

I pitched the Lochristi blend over the weekend. It's already developing a mild funk on the nose. It doesn't seem to clash aroma wise, so I am still hopeful. Fingers crossed
