    so I bought a madame rose... and discovered I dislike sours as a genre. Can't pitch the beer without major guilt. I'm thinking about recycling. I cook as a hobby... but can't think of a way to use a sour. Any suggestions (that don't involve fish-I have an allergy)?

    You could try using it as a braising liquid for some short ribs, pork belly, etc. A lot of times wine is used because the acidity helps in the cooking process with those tougher cuts of meat. I could imagine that an ale with some nice acidity would work the same way. I've been thinking about trying this myself with a similar beer.

    stew it, braising poaching a little. Deglaze it and make a sauce with it... on... whatever you think might jive (pork tenderloiin just popped in my head).. lots of possibilities... and if you just make a sauce, you can use some, and save the other for something else.
