And as everybody has said, you can make sour beers quickly. You can make very tasty sour beers quickly. I have a fake kriek I made by souring a wheat beer and dumping it on cherries. It's really good. I'm working on an oud bruin that takes 6 months instead of 18. It's not that what you will make won't be enjoyable, you just have to be aware that what you make just by souring isn't going to resemble the properly aged version, especially in the case of lambic.
