I'd whirlpool with a low cohumulone hop. Less cohumulone = less aggressive bitterness in general. Finish it off with some dry hops.

I wouldn't take the flameout 100c/80c thing as gospel as plenty of evidence is pointing towards the temp not mattering heaps - time seems to be much more important.

Blueberry Muffin?!

A wee hitch with this beer, the pH has only dropped to 3.75 - not sour enough - and it's been about three days now. It's really time to either pitch the yeast or heat/hop/yeast. I don't know whether dry hopping will inhibit any further action from the lactobacillus, but it seems like my best bet..

Down to 3.5, but i'd pitched the Brett, so we're going for the dry hop only approach!

1g/l of both Citra and Simcoe in now 24 hours after fermentation began.

The interaction between the yeast and hop oils should produce some different flavours and aromas. My hope is it's a bit more long-lasting than simple dry hopping. Either way it's an attempt to add more layers of flavour to the beer. There's lots of info on this out there and a good wee primer is available here:- . Although I don't fully understand enough of it yet to be honest.

Gravity dropped to 1.009. and pH steady. This puts it up at almost 7% and it's still fermenting slowly. Almost ready for a second dry hop.

This one just kept on fermenting. I haven't checked the gravity again but the airlock kept bubbling for weeks. Seems to be more or less at a halt now, but I'll bottle in 375ml champagne style bottles just in case. Final dry hop of Citra/Simcoe and Chinook has gone in and will get it bottled on Wednesday! Pleasantly tart, with a hint of hops for now.

I remain unconvinced by ~6-7% simple sour beers like this and Buxton's Trolltunga. I don't think the extra alcohol really does much at all to the beer vs a 3% Berliner weisse malt bill.

So this was surprisingly well received by the clubs and people I've send this out too recently. The acidity and yeast go together rather nicely and the lack of any real bitterness is just fine. All in all it came out relatively well balanced and complex.
