Mash high.

Reduce the hops (IBUs).

Increase the Special B.

Start fermentation on the warm side (70s).

Have some Belgian yeast available to pitch if you see no activity in about 4 days.

Enjoy!

Too late for my input, but looks good. Make sure to age a LONG time! I mistakenly drank half of my flan red the first time i brewed a sour many years ago. the other half sat for another year and was great.

I have brewed 9,25 gal, o think I'm going to loss 0, 5 gal moving to secondary then I'm having 8,75 gal
I have two 4 gal carboy and one 1,6 gal barrel

You suggest me to fill the two carboy to the top and put the last 0,75 gal in a 1gal bottle or to fill the barrel and after put the last 7, 5 gal in the carboy leaving some head space?
