Anybody have an update? I ended up adding dried cherries about a year ago. I just bottled it about an hour ago. The taste I jut sampled was amazing. Smooth lactic sourness. Light on the funk. Nothing...

Believe it or not the WalMart brand dried cherries don't have any oil on them. They were the only ones I could find for my sour brown.

They do still pasteurize, but their method is different from your standard filtration method. So while there are still some critters sitting at the bottom of the bottles.... They're all dead.

Actually yes, it's quite sour and a small amount of Brett funkiness. Lacto usually takes that long to do its job for two reasons, one is IBUs and the other is alcohol. Both of those things slow down...

Keep in mind my recipe for that was using lacto and Brett only.... No pedio. In most true lambics pedio does the bulk of the souring, and it is slow and needs time because beers with pedio go through...

I love the hop socks. At my LHBS they're like $0.40 a pop, so I just by a handful whenever I'm there and use them once only.

Cold crashing will work, but finings will work better. For future reference though it's a good idea to put your hops in a hop sack and weigh it down with marbles. At my LHBS I saw this mesh tube that...

I would actually recommend racking it in a few months. Since you have it in a bucket it will absorb oxygen more quickly than if it were in your carboy, and that could be problematic.

And also I think any really citrusy American hops will work well, especially amarillo. My SWMBO says that it tastes like grapefruit juice with the citrusy hops and acidity.

Standard 60 minute boil. A half ounce of willamette in the mash. I was going for as little IBU as possible, and mash-hopping is said to get 70% utilization vs. a boil.

If you're really that worried about it I would throw a couple ounces in for dry hopping. What's more is that your beer will completely change by the time it's carbed and conditioned.

Maybe for you, but for those of use who don't live where we can get bottles of RR very easily to pitch the dregs, those barrel chunks can be great. In fact, I wish they'd just sell the chunks.
