This is my sour beer base, used to make milkshake/fruit style sour kettle sour beers.

For best results, pre-sour with lactic acid to pH4.5, then kettle sour to pH3.2-3.5.

Secondary additions bring this beer to life, I usually add 250g lactose to the boil, and then play around with fruit purees. I have had good success with:

– 2kg Mango puree + 1 kg Passionfruit puree
– 3kg Raspberry puree

You can also add 8g salt to the boil to give a gose type style.
