DetailsInfluenced by traditionally soured ales, Heiress de Bourgogne takes advantage of a fast acting lactobacillus blend to sour the wort in a few days, right in your brew kettle. This rapid souring has many benefits - first, a quick souring time, and since this technique is utilized before the main wort boil, no bacteria remains in your finished beer to possibly infect other batches.
The result? A complexly sour red ale with flavors of dark fruit, figs and an underlying deliciously tart note. Because Heiress de Bourgogne is soured in the kettle, it will mature very quickly into an extravagantly tasty, deep ruby colored masterpiece.

5.0 / 5.01 ReviewGreat, Easy Kettle Sour KitI made this when the kit was called "The Sour Dutchman." Had some trouble figuring out get the wort to sour, but the gents at Midwest answered my question quickly. This is a kit you want to either either bottle and let sit, or let sit in a secondary for several months. Everyone who has had my first version loved it, and it's only gotten better as it's aged (bottles remaining are close to a year old). I'm going to brew this kit again soon, but this time use mango in the secondary to create a mango sour. I'm looking forward to those results.November 15, 2018Purchased
