I want to do a Pliny the Elder clone and add lactose, goodbelly mango and fruit. So can I brew the clone as the recipe says but just add lactose instead of corn sugar and just second ferment the fruit to make a Pliny sour fruited IPA ?
The lactose gives sweetness . As for hops and the Lactobacillus you should do hops after the souring process . I dont use any hops in the boil when doing a co pitch sour. Kettle sour is different i believe .No honey malt because the goodbelly sweetens enough ? Also I shouldn't add Citra to wort ?
