Gauloise yeast farming?
Anyone know if it is possible to farm the yeast from any of these bottle-conditioned commercial brews?

Gauloise Brune (de Bocq)

Brugge Tripel

Hommelbier

Thank you,

Baz.

I hear that now-a-days Brugge Tripel has devolved into a more corporate beer. I asked about this a month or so ago on the BBB, that's what came out of the inquiry. If that is the case I would probably not bother with Brugge Tripel.

Can anyone confirm or deny whether Brugge Tripel is bottled with the brewing yeast. Or whether it is pasteurised?

Thanks

Baz.

Tough thing to find is whether the original yeast was used in bottling or a different strain added. I don't think they're pasteurized....

According to the website:

Hommelbier is a beer with econdary fermentation in the bottle.Therefore,a layer of ferment is still present at the bottom of the bottle.This beer has a unique distinction of bieng a completely natural beer.

Baz, I think the only place you could get a reliable confirmation here would be at the brewery, assuming they willing to tell the truth. Same with pasteurization, though if this were a betting thing I'd bet that it is.

Sounds a possible yeast source. I recall when I last had a bottle of Hommelbier. I poured half a bottle out, it nice & clear. Then I poured out the 2nd half of the bottle into my glass, a lot of yeast came with it.

Well, its possible. They might have pasteurized it as Steve suggests, then added a lager strain for all we know.

Try a starter culture first, then experiment.
