I make a lot of sour beers. Sours occupy a large portion of my regular homebrew repertoire, because they have been rated so very well by all my sour loving friends. My homebrew suppliers, Hamilton Hops have asked me my tricks, and requested a how-to. Well here it is. Below you'll find a summary of my techniques, a walk-through with a few critical things to avoid, and then finally an extremely simply recipe which a number of drinkers have rated as the best beer they've ever had. The beers are way too good given how easy the technique is.
