Just did my first Flanders Red and I'm wondering what people's experience has been with Roselare in primary. How long did you wait to rack it over to a secondary for long aging? It's only been 3 weeks and fermentation slowed just about a week ago.

I'm in no rush but I've read a few different theories and I'm wanting to hear a few more. I also pitched the dregs from a Jolly Pumpkin Bam Biere and I'm considering pitching Consecration dregs in the secondary.

How long before you would move this over?

I generally just leave my reds on the cake for the duration

I do 110 days in plastic and transfer to kegs after that to avoid getting too much O2. I then re-use the cake for a second batch since it sours a lot more on the second pitch. Recipe is in my dropdown.

Adding consecration dregs is a good idea. I have added the dregs of several sours to mine for a more complex profile.

I've got a batch sitting on roselare and consecration, temptation, and supplication dregs. Its about 7 months old. I plan to leave it on the cake for the duration.
