Notes

12/27/19- Changed from Buckwheat to CaraRye and Hallertau to Mandarina Bavaria hops. I am going to double the IBU's in an effort to mellow some of the sour character. The oak will be added when everything goes into the primary. This is the new grain bill of the previous Flanders Red that I made. It will have the same yeast and same bugs.

Brewed on 6/23/19, I put 2 quarts of Muscat sour culture on the wort with the Belgian yeast. I added oak cubes soaked in red wine on 8/23/19 and kegged it on 11/25/19.

My Sour Angels was really nice after about 5 1/2 months of age with this culture. That is a Berliner Weiss malt bill with Kolsch yeast and the Muscat culture.
