Sour plum beer?

So my aunt’s fruit trees are going to produce this year, and I got a bug up my butt about making beer. She has a tree that has cherry size plums on it, and I wanted to try making a sour (unripe) plum beer using this recipe. Is this doable, or am I in over my head? https://byo.com/mead/item/1389-sour-cherry-ale-syle-profile

Kind of odd directions. Have you made beer before? If not I would recommend the extract option because you have alot going on. What I would do is do the beer part first and rack to a bucket to ferment for 5 days after that prepare the fruit and rack the beer on top for a secondary fermentation for 2 weeks. I don’t know how sour it will be this might make a nice kettle sour

I’ve made beer before, but it’s been a very long time. An extract sounds like a great idea. Thanks.

A guy i work with has made a plum cider that he says is divine…takes ripe plums tho :grinning:
