Hi - the current MagicHat Odd Notion is a sour American Ale that makes use of 10% aciduated malt for its sourness instead of special yeast. When the family was in town a few weeks back we were at the brewery sampling and this was a surprise favorite.

Has any one worked up any sour ale recipes based on this malt? I searched recipes/threads here, but only found the Berlinner Weisse. I would love to add a sour ale to the rotation, especially if I don't have to wait a year for they beer to sour.

Thanks for any pointers. And, if none exist, I'll let you know what I come up with.
Atomic Dog Brewery

On Deck: Centennial IPA, Dry Irish Stout
P: Cascade Pale Ale
S: (nothing!)
K: (nothing!)
T: Carbed Crystal Light, Root Beer, Vanilla Cream Soda, Tripel IPA, Apfelwein

e^(pi*i) + 1 = 0

I love this beer, but apparently lots of people don't... If you do happen to find a recipe, extract (preferred) or not, PLEASE let me know. I'd love to give it a go.

Likewise...I'm a critic but analysis only goes so far for me. Sometimes you just have to enjoy the good things of a beer, even if you secretly keep in mind the bad things (I know that's the opposite of what a critique is supposed to be)

Maybe just do a sour mash. I've never done one but BYO just had an article on how to go about doing it.
