duchesse tastes like it could be back-sweetened though.

Ive never failed to have one carbonate so long as its not a ridiculously high alc%, however I have started recently to adding a pinch of wine yeast to the bottling bucket to ensure carbonation, if you go that route use an acid tolerant wine strain like k1v116. It will ferment in just about any circumstance its a real beast

I did pitch another 5 gallons onto the yeast cake, making it the third generation Roselare yeast cake. It didn't start right away and it has been really popping the airlock, but there is fermentation going on. 15 gallons of Flanders in various stages at my house right now.

I would think that the point would be to lower the AA, and make it easier for the bugs to do their thing...

I don't know if you follow The Mad Fermentationist but he has an extensive recipe list with a few flanders and many other sour beers.
