Anyone want to get together and drink a bunch of sour beer? I have a sour barrel at home that is in need of some more sour bugs. I would love to use the dregs from some commercial beers. Basically, everyone would bring at least one bottle of sour beer with harvestable dregs. We would all get to taste a bunch of sour beers, and the dregs from the bottles would be used to inoculate the barrel. I’d be glad to give a bottle of the finished beer to anyone who is willing to contribute, assuming the beer ends up tasting okay. I’m tentatively looking at doing this on Saturday, June 8th in the afternoon. Here is an incomplete list of beers with harvestable dregs: http://www.themadfermentationist.com/2010/06/harvesting-sour-beer-bottle-dregs.html
There are a lot more wild beers available now than when this list was published, but this list is a good starting point. Let me know if you are interested.
