Great starter Sour
Really like this one. Don't have to have a separate set up for sours. First batch I didn't let it sit a long time, and it was a very approachable sour for first timers. Second batch I left for a long time, and it is SOUR. Love it!

Sour beer
Nice sourness. But not much richness. I didn’t get any of the green apples flavor I was looking for. Decent beer. Wouldn’t make it again.

Yeah baby!
I'm equally impressed. Just the right tartness and I took the pH to 3.35. I used the Grainfather so did the mash and preboil then srabalized the temp for 3 days in the boil kettle. After 2 weeks in warm room using fizz tabs, got a small head and champagne bubbles. Nice grain profile in flavor, dry tart slight sweet. Very pleased with my first ever sour and sure I wil impress some of my friends. A must try for those who want to try a sour. If I had a keg setup I probably would experiment with nitro on this recipe!

Great beer
Wow I was shocked at well this turned out. I have really wanted to do a sour since I first tried a Rodenbach, but thought it was beyond my reach until I started reading about kettle souring.

I am ordering again but I am going to try adding fruit and maybe oak chips this time.

right taste needs more body
I will make this again as the sour flavor is right on the money. I let it sour the full three days and used my wrap heater over the kettle to regulate the temp. I would do that sooner next time and I will either adjust the mash or extend the boil to get more body. I really like sours and have probably tried nearly 80. This one has the right tartness and a great flavor. I am interested to see how it ages. Give it a go.

How well do you expect this beer to do with aging in the bottle?
Amy B on Mar 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Shouldn't change too much because you kill all the lacto in the boil. Still tasty and ought to do fine in the bottle for a while.
The yeast option for this beer is dry yeast. In the directions it mentions options for Wyeast or omega. Is the dry yeast the correct option?
A shopper on Apr 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for contacting Northern Brewer. For this Heiress de Dourgogne kit, there are several types of yeast you can choose to make this particular beer. We always have the dry yeast chosen by default, but if you click on the yeast there is a drop down menu. For this kit you could use: Safbrew T-58 Dry yeast, Wyeast 3522 Belgian Ardennes, or the Omega Belgian Ale A. Cheers!
