Looking to make this for my next batch. Plan would be to do my normal mash with only ~1# of the acid malt (perhaps less, I haven't run the numbers yet), as the acid in the additional might hurt conversion, then adding the additional acid malt after about 45 minutes of the mash. Looking for a nice tart character, but not a strong sourness.

I also chose to go with a combo of US-05 and WLP300, as I don't want the "hefe" characteristic to be overwhelming. I understand Gose is traditionally brewed with a hefe yeast at low temps (~62), but from what I've heard about hefe yeasts is that you tend to get prominent clove down in those ranges. My theory is that US-05 will chug along very happily at 62, and the hefe will give some of the natural stylistic aspects of a gose without going overboard. But I've never mixed yeasts, so I'm unclear if my theory is correct...

Well, all I know about Gose, I read in the May-June 2011 BYO story. And until SCHF this year, I had never tried one. (pretty different, tasty & interesting .. I think it was from New Belgium Brewing...)

Check out the article. I really know nothing much about the style. Ohh, the 2 recipes they give use either KOLSH (WLP029) or German Ale (1007) yeasts ... I'm not sure you want the WLP300 in there at all ..

Good luck!
