Anywhere from 6 months to 3 years. I have a lambic that I haven't touched yet that I brewed in June 2011-- that's my oldest. On average, 6-12 months before bottling/blending.

So, here I am 10 months later, and I'm still having this problem, and in fact, it is worse. I definitely taste buttered popcorn in most of my sour beers, even fermenter samples. Some of these have...

Cuvee Rene varies wildly based on batch and age. Buy two bottles and stick one in your basement for 2 years.

I have a bottle in my basement that I just coincidentally looked at. The beer is 8.5% so there should be plenty of residual sugars for the brett to work on. This will never taste like a lambic but...

In my limited experience, the Wyeast blends are rather bland in the first generation, except in cases where I've aged the beer in a barrel. It seems the oxygen really makes the souring bacteria take...

I've always wondered if a brett-fermented beer (either with, or without sacc), that had lactic acid added before packaging, would be a good way to do a poor man's flemish-style beer.

I'm not 100pct sure, but i definitely do get the traditional butter taste from time to time, so I am assuming that Cheerios taste is diacetyl at lower concentrations.

Diacetyl in a variety of sours

Been making sour beers for a few years now, and the one problem that seems to consistently show up is relatively high levels of diacetyl, which comes across as a honeyish, Cheerios, or at its worst,...

Allagash Interlude. Any Jolly Pumpkin Beer. As stated, Cuvee Renee, Rodenbach, Petrus Aged Pale, and I'll add Boon Gueuze to the list. Ithaca has some sours but they are hard to come by.

To reiterate, the fruit lindemans are pastuerized and don't have viable dregs. The exception to this, the cuvee renee kriek, is a pretty rare beer.

I see you're in CT. Some of the beers you want...

Thanks for the advice everyone. I think will wait until the early spring when the temp is back around 60. I don't want to apply any sort of temp control to my sours-- I reserve that for my ales.
