Thinking about making one of these and have never done it this way before. So the salt addition is already there but what about the rest of it? Lime? When to add it? Tequila? What about adding some? Decided to use the Omega Lacto blend. 

 

Thoughts.

Tequila soaked oak chips......................

Lime zest (several limes incorporated before packaging................

Possible use of citric acid over other choices...........

Just spit-balling here

Never ever used the term spit-balling before today :)

To Brother Poptop's post above:

 

Consider making a tincture with lime zest and tequila, adding in citric acid to taste once the tincture has had a chance to meld.

 

Once the gose is kegged and tapped, maybe add this tincture to the glass at serving, and scale up for a future re-brew?

Very good idea of a tequila/lime tincture. I do plan however to use the lacto blend. You suggesting to use citric acid as well?

I'd hold off on the citric acid until you taste the tincture (it may not need it) and definitely until you taste the base gose itself (it also may not need add'l acid).

I'd agree that your whole process should be based on incremental tastes. The old adage you can always add more but you can't......

I've got fairly good experience with tasting along the way and adding tincture at packaging. I really like that idea.

I once had Boulevard's Hibiscus Gose sitting in the heat at the beach and it was so right at that very moment. A Margarita Gose just sounds right down here in the spirit crushing heat. Please keep us posted with the whole shebang if you will.

Sure thing. Boulevard has a Tequila Barrel Lime Gose out in stores now. I’m using it as my comparison beer.
