It was suggested in the http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f12/10-1...-series-79107/ thread that:

I've been doing some reading and it seems like bugged beers benefit from some extra aging so it might be appropriate to start some serious discussion now.

I went ahead and ordered the Wyeast 5151-PC Brettanomyces claussenii from this quarters private collection, for either 11-11-11 or some other beer.

For a recipe perhaps a kicked up version of saq'a http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f72/minstrel-sour-134999/ ?

or since Jason did such a great job with the 10-10-10 maybe his http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f127/fla...-griet-114546/ ?

It seems like there is a lot of room to play with bugged beers, you could just about bug any conventional style to come up with something interesting.

Anyone have other suggestions? Or am I too early?

In all seriousness, how about something like Rodenbach's Vin de Cereal?

I've never had it but in the past we have eschewed doing a straight up clone of a commercial beer in favor of something uniquely designed for the HBT brew. Of course since Rodenbach only makes 10,000 bottles for export (from a total of 30,000) a clone might be the only way some of us get their hands on this beer. That not withstanding, clone or not, we need someone to step up and start a recipe. This would likely be my first bugged beer so I'm not comfortable doing it myself, I just wanted to get the conversation rolling.

I'm not suggesting that we do a clone, I'm suggesting that we do a 1.100 Flanders red.
2 packs of Roselare into an oude bruin as a starter. Rack the bruin after 6 months, and put the huge flanders on the cake. Bottle a year or so later.

I'm down for a bugged brew. I've wanted to do one for a while and 11-11 would be good. Got a baby coming 11-22. It'd be like a birthday present to him (for me ).

Got a recipe? Like I said, this will probably be my first sours so I'm not sure what needs to go into such a beer.

Congrats on the imminent baby! Make a big batch and sample a bottle at each birthday. Culminate with sour beer aged 21 years for their 21st.

I guess I'm out of this one. No sour beers for me.

I guess I forgot that not everyone's into the sours. This should really be an inclusive thing.
Are you against brett-only beers as well, or are you just not a fan of sour beers?
