Hi everyone. I've been poking around here for a while and this is my first post. My apologies up front if this has been discussed elsewhere, I couldn't find it if it has.
I've recently tried my first Sour (and also my first partial mash) by brewing the recipe below I found on hopville.com.
I pitched the Roselare right into the primary and let that sit for a month. I then racked into glass over 5 pounds of sour cherries and 2 oak spindles for the secondary. I've read conflicting ideas for how long I should let it sit on the cherries and oak. Some guys in my homebrew club recommended going to a clean tertiary after only a month. I've heard from other places to leave it on the cherries and oak for a year.
Does the hive mind here at HBT have any advice for a Sour freshman? How long should I leave it on the cherries and oak?
