Sour brown kriek

Yield: 54 Servings

Measure Ingredient
10 pounds 2-row Klages
15 pounds Wheat malt
2 pounds Chocolate malt
¼ ounce Styrian Goldings
2 ounces Clusters

This is a single temperature infusion mash at 165 degrees for 1-½ hours. prise de mousse (S. bayanus) and Pediococus D. in the fermenter 7 day primary/14 day secondary kegged with 16 ounce cherry concentrate (68 brix) and Brettenomyces culture. Making a sour brown type beer is somewhat easier than a lambic. So here is my recipe for an excellent sour brown kreik beer. The lambic's flavour/aroma is a result of a unique fermentation process involving a host of yeasts and bacteria, I recommend J.X. Guinard's Lambic book for more info. It is unfortunate that articles in Zymurgy wriiten by CP lead people to beleive that sour mashing is a part of lambic, perhaps he could read Guinards book after all isn't he the publisher!
