Update on the rose hips strains: Not good. The yellowish looking one ended up being really unpleasantly funky, like decomposing jockstrap wine. The krausen sample proved to be quite tart and somewhat sour. Though not really unpleasant, it definitely belongs only in a sour beer. I'm contemplating adding it to my Sour Ale, though I may save it and make a new sour beer where this is the only souring agent, just to see how it turns out.
