Notes

Yes you can make an extract version of Lambic/Gueuze Beer. Its the bugs that make this beer special along as the months it takes to get the right flavors.
You can use a dry Belgian yeast like Lallemand's ABBAYe or BELLE SAISON or Fermentis T-58. Then White Labs 645 - Brettanomyces or WLP 653 - Brettanomyces lambicus for the aging part. The maltodextrin will be food for the little buggers!
