Notes

Adding dried cherries to whirlpool as beer cools. (170f). Then again to fermenter.

Half the beer will be fermented with Gnome with no additional tricks.

Half the beer will be wort-soured with Lacto and raw grain for 36-48 hrs, then boiled and fermented with US-05.

The beer will be blended to taste, with one half of the beer getting kegged and served fresh and the other half aged on oak.

The goal here is to mock a Flanders Red in 1-2 months time.
