Deep red in color with a nice malt structure, this beer is based on those from certain regions of Belgium, and have distinct sour overtones to them. This is due to the wild spores that inhabit the air - and some breweries - of the area. While this would normally be a "bad" thing, the infection lends special tart and sour qualities unlike any other beer can. For a more traditional spin on this kit, try aging it on some oak cubes!
We recommend fermenting this beer with WLP001 California Ale for two weeks. Then add Wyeast 3763 Roeselare Belgian Sour Blend in the secondary fermenter bucket. This kit does require some special instructions, as it is a special beer. Once the gravity hits 1.015 - 1.020, rack the beer into a plastic bucket and pitch the sour blend tube. Age the beer at 65F-70F for 6 months, until the white cap that will form drops. The reason for the plastic bucket aging is so that tiny amounts of oxygen are allowed to be taken in by the plastic and come in contact with the beer. This micro-oxidation adds to the over all flavor of the beer itself.
Reminder: you will need to keep the equipment used to handle the beer after the sour blend is introduced separated from the rest of your brewing equipment, or clean and sanitize very well after use.
