Vinnie from RR said on a pod cast he would not bottle a sour before 1.008, FYI.

I bottled my 18 month old Flanders Red on tart cherries at 1.012. But I also pasteurized the bottles just in case of bottle bombs. Must have worked, that beer took 1st at the Indiana State Fair in Fruit Beers.

Most important advice I can give you: don't go on looks, hydrometer or smell alone. Use a combination of those things and TASTE it. It's ain't gonna bite.

Actually the taste is the main reason I'm feeling good about bottling now. It tastes awesome even without carbonation.

That works with his process and bugs, but I've had some big sours stop around ~1.015 that have had consistent carbonation in bottles for a couple years now. I'd rather the gravity was stable than low when deciding to bottle.

I ended up bottling the Kriek over the weekend. I added less priming sugar than normal (enough for around 1.8-2.0 volumes) but still hopefully enough so it's not way under carbed.
