Welcome to the homeBBBrew board!
Like the BBB, the homeBBBrew board is not a club, just a place to talk about making beer. Is there a swap you would like to see happen? If we can find a few others who have something similar then lets do it!

NO SPECIFIC REASON FOR THIS LINK...
I just really like the work levifunk is doing!

BYO magazine - Brettanomyces
The latest BYO magazine had several articles - 3 small ones from pro brewers who use brett, and one large one from a homebrewer.

Interesting reading! If you aren't a subscriber, book stores with a large magazine section usually carry it, as well as your lhbs.

Is the November 2005 the one you mean?

Re: BYO magazine - Brettanomyces
Steve Piatz wrote the bigger article... he's a part of our local club and a lambic fanatic.

The issue has recipes (from Tomme and Vinnie respectively) for Mo Betta Bretta and Sanctification.

Re: BYO magazine - Brettanomyces
I don't actually get BYO, but any mag that would address a topic of that caliber deserves support. So after reading Chets post I subscribed. My first issue is the current one, they are calling that the November issue. Hope thats the one!

Great having a contributor in your club Jeff!

Re: BYO magazine - Brettanomyces
I'll check when I get home from work Steve, but I'm pretty sure it's the November issue.

Jeff, invite Steve P. to the forum...iirc from the article, he's got some 10 carboys of lambics...that's crazy (in a good way!)

He's not much of a forum guy, but if you want to get a hold of him, you can reach him on the mnbrewers yahoo group. (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/mnbrewers/)

Re: BYO magazine - Brettanomyces
Sounds excellent. I'm a subscriber and the most recent issue I received was the special 10th Anniversary issue: Sept. 2005. I also received the Sept. 2005 BYO E-newsletter today. I'd think the newest issue, which I haven't received yet, would be Oct. 2005.

SteveG, there's often a lag time from when you subscribe, and I've had some misinformation given to me via phone regarding what issue I'd be receiving. You might want to double-check with someone.

Re: BYO magazine - Brettanomyces
The cover says October...but it just came at the end of last week, so it's just out. I'd be surprised if they waited till the next issue to start your subscription.

I'm reviewing mine with a very bretty Belgian pale ale...did a side by side with Orval - the Orval was certainly superior, but mine is in the neighborhood...

One of the interesting bits of info is that brettanomyces means "British brewing industry fungus" as it was isolated from wood aged British strong ales by N. Claussen (Brettanomyces Claussenii is one of the White Labs strains, similiar to B. anomalus used by Tomme Arthur for Mo'Betta Bretta - the connection isn't specifically made in the article, but seems obvious...)

So, "funk" is not just a Belgian thing - the Brits just moved away from it...to their loss, perhaps?

Makes me want to pitch a British Brown Porter I made into the keg the Belgian Pale currently occupies...for historical "experimentation."

Thats what the perscription deal says though. I'll look around, maybe I can find the 10/05 issue, I'd really like to see it. I'm particularly interested in whats involved with primary fermentation.

Hey Steve, I am going to pick up the newest issue from the HB-store. I could pick one up for you and send it out with the swap, if you can't find it otherwise.

Irony in action
Well after buying that last issue of BYO, I found a free copy of it in my mail box today. Just my luck, I never buy this mag, and now I have two of the same issue.

Anyone want one :-)
