Anything worth pitching in Lindemann's?
For my lambic I was planning on throwing dregs from every bottle of commercial lambic I could find into it with the goal of increasing the number and complexity of bugs in the brew. Is there anything worth pitching in Lindemanns? I know it's got dregs but wasn't sure if they were bugs or simply a bottling yeast, or even fruit residue?

Man, I'd be surpised if regular Lindemans turned out to be bottle conditioned at all. Maybe Cuvee Rene would work, is that what you meant?

If anything, it would be Cuvee.

I'd recommend any Fantome and Jolly Pumpkin. Allagash Interlude would probably be a good bet and probably DeProef's primitive ales. Those aren't lambics of course.

Re: Anything worth pitching in Lindemann's?
Thanks guys. I have a bottle of Hanssens Oude Kriek, as well as the usual sour mixes from WL and Wy and a B. Claus as well. I did mean regular Lindemanns Framboise (or whatever I grab) since it's readily available and the rest are pretty tough to find sometimes.

Of course, maybe now I already have enough bugs to toss in anyway...

Just bumping this again, hoping to get a little more info.

In the wasteland of sour beer that is Saskatchewan, the only possibility is adding the dregs is from a bottle of a Cuvee Rene. Can anyone confirm what is in there?

I think Cuvee's the only Lindeman's bottle with a chance of anything living in it. Give it a shot in a starter, see what happens! You can always add more bugs later.

I pitched the Cuvee dregs into a active wild batch. No starter so I don't know if it contributed anything. petec

I read a post somewhere that claimed that Cuvee Rene dregs make for a good/fast souring. Never used them myself though.

I'll pick up a couple bottles of Cuvee Rene this weekend and toss them into my Flanders Red solera carboy (already has Wyeast Roselare and White Labs Brett C). I also have a bottle of Mikkeller US Alive that I plan to dump in (it is dosed with Brett Brux).

I've used Orval dregs in a saison. But I don't have any on hand at the moment, and the closest store that carries it is about 750km away.

I've had a batch going with Cuvee Rene dregs for a few months now. If I remember, I'll give it a taste this evening and report back.

Re: Anything worth pitching in Lindemann's?
So I checked on mine last night. The beer is starting to grow a very small pellicle, but very little funk to speak of as of now. Although it's still pretty young at probably only 5 months or so.

Had a Cuvee Rene last night and mine definitely had some sediment on the bottom. Delicious beer and very drinkable!

Re: Anything worth pitching in Lindemann's?
pete - yeah, bottle dregs into glass secondary. it's my chocofunk for those that may remember that thread. I would have to say there is a chance for viable bugs in the cuvee renee only, although in my case it could have been a pretty small amount.
