My first attempt at doing a saison and then introducing brett to it to make it a sour. Ended up not using brett but rather lactobacillus. Aged in a glass carboy at 74 degrees for 8 months. A bit sour, and a bit cherry. I added 5 lbs of cherries for 8 months. HAs a nice flavor.

Notes:

Notes so far (update): Fermented for 7 days. Racked to bottling bucket to clean glass carboy. Ended up with about 4 gallons of beer. Racked back to glass carboy, added 5 lbs of cherries and lactobacillus. Now we wait. Decided not to split the batch and just keep it together.

Notes:

Notes so far: The yeast I'm using is Mangrove Jacks Belgian Ale (dry yeast) and I'm planning on after its fermented to split the batch up in 2.5 gallons and sour the batches using the lambicus. In one bucket I'll put 3 lbs of pineapple and the other I'll put 3lbs of cranberries

    After 8 months it was bottled and bottle conditioned for another month. A bit sour, not overly tart, has some cherry flavor.
