Got my hands on some nice souring yeast. and have done some souring with fruit and strong golden's, but was wondering if if one as ever done in with a traditional bitter, not sure if it would be good or working very well, but sounds interesting... thought?

It is my understanding that Guinness Extra - You sour 1 pint to five gallons. After the pint is soured, you pasteurize it to stop the bug, and then add it back to the five gallon batch.
